Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) December 23, 2009
The Utility Company, a leading provider of virtual IT service and support, today recognized its Utility Service Provider (USP) Triple-Digit Club of top performing franchisees for both financial performance and exceptional customer service. 20% of Utility Service Providers made the 2009 Triple-digit Club, which is calculated by annualized monthly profit divided by total investment in the business.
“The attraction of the managed services business model is building monthly recurring revenue. Unfortunately the cost and time to get there has traditionally been exorbitant,” stated Mark Scott, president and founder of The Utility Company. “In the new economy any investment an entrepreneur makes should be measurable and ultimately profitable. Our USP Triple-Digit Club focuses on what’s important - ROI.”
Many of the USP Triple-Digit Club contributed to The Utility Company’s growing list of customer success stories over the past two years – http://www.theutilitycompany.com/success. Key success factors of those franchisees that made the list include:
•Dedication to customer service by playing Virtual CIO trusted advisor role.
•Investment in sales and marketing activity including ongoing top of mind awareness.
•Leverage referrals and partnerships.
•Knowledge-based vertical focus.
“As franchise #1 (December 2006) its great to see The Utility Company continue to evolve our managed services business and look to the future of cloud computing,” stated Mark McIntyre of Greater Toronto Area Southwest. “Being recognized in the Triple-Digit Club is great, but even better is the quality of service we deliver to our customers. This ultimately determines the success of any business.”
