Leading IT Services Franchise Announces Several Strategic Initiatives and Celebrates Franchisee Accomplishments
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CMIT Solutions, a leading information technology (IT) managed services provider (MSP) serving the SMB market, held its annual conference November 1 – 3 in Denver, CO. Named “CMIT Connect Live!” the conference was a celebration of the organization hitting its goal of a $100 million in systemwide revenue this past August. In addition to the celebration, the company announced several strategic goals and initiatives.
“CMIT Connect Live!” focused on the state of the MSP industry and the current increase in cybersecurity risk occurring globally. Roger Lewis, CEO of CMIT Solutions, announced the company’s next goals of reaching $200 million in systemwide revenue and 50 franchise locations earning more than one million in revenue in the next three to five years. The company plans to achieve these objectives by focusing extensively on lead generation, in-depth marketing programs, and growing national accounts. The success of these programs already has paid huge dividends resulting in CMIT Solution’s 2022 achievement of its $100 million milestone more than a year ahead of the vision statement timeline.
“It’s been a remarkable and inspiring experience to come together and connect with our franchisees and technology partners to value the ways in which everyone supports one another,” said Lewis. “We’ll continue to strive for excellence as we move towards our next goal of reaching $200 million in systemwide revenue. This conference is a well-deserved opportunity to celebrate our $100 million milestone, and after this event, we’ll hone our focus on achieving the next one. I’m looking forward to keeping this momentum by staying committed to helping our clients implement and maintain reliable technology as well as provide affordable, top-notch IT and cybersecurity services. The industry continues to experience exponential growth. There’s no better time to be in the CMIT Solutions system other than right now.”
CMIT Solutions announced several other key initiatives centered on reaching their goal of $200 million and at least 50 franchise locations reaching the million dollar systemwide revenue mark. This includes launching a new website, increasing lead generation, utilizing an updated marketing coordinator program, and implementing a sales development representative program to generate leads and ultimately contribute to the growth of CMIT Solutions’ businesses throughout North America.
Throughout the three-day conference, franchisees were also able to attend extensive sales and marketing trainings, educational seminars, and had opportunities to share best practices with one another. The accomplishments of franchisees and supplier partners were celebrated as well with an award ceremony.
