If you've ever worked in an office, in a retail outlet or anywhere that uses technology, you'll know that having a helpful, knowledgeable IT department that you can quickly contact when things go wrong is absolutely vital to the running of the business. However, many companies cannot afford to have a full IT department and often get by on skeleton staff. When disaster strikes and the technology stops working, the lack of well-trained IT support staff can be catastrophic, having a major impact on customer satisfaction and income generation.
This is where IT franchises come in. Imagine running your own IT company, knowing that there were vast numbers of companies unable to justify the cost of an in-house IT department and looking to outsource the work. And not just small companies either; huge multi-national companies such as Google, Skype and WhatsApp have been known to outsource IT jobs.
According to a study by Technavio, global IT outsourcing will have a compound annual growth rate of almost 6% by 2019. It is estimated that around 60% of IT work is outsourced and that outsourcing equates to approximately 12% of IT budgets.
Running your own IT franchise has never been easier. You have the autonomy to make your own business decisions, but with the financial reliability of a worldwide franchise behind you. You also don't need to be an IT expert as there is plenty of training available to you, and support in terms of creating and maintaining your marketing strategy. You will also have an existing company behind you, which will put you at a great advantage against those who are trying to build a customer base from scratch. Companies currently recruiting new franchisees include A&O IT, Computer Troubleshooters and Tenacious Techies.
