Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 03, 2016 -- Shield Watch announced today another solid year of 21% organic growth in 2015 as “LEVER IT℠,” its unique end-to-end IT solution program, resonated with small business owners who want to capture digital marketplace opportunities but don’t have the luxury of a big IT budget. The company had reported a 27% growth in revenues in 2014.
Using this proprietary methodology, Shield Watch has helped clients maintain, secure and leverage their IT infrastructure to gain short term sales boost while building long term business value for clients thereby significantly increasing their ROI on IT spend.
“We achieved another record year and that shows in our 20%+ top line growth for 2015. We’ve ramped up our team by 67% in the past 12 months. Customer acceptance of LEVER IT℠ as an IT Management & IT-Enabled Business Innovation model is growing rapidly. We are expanding our current offices in Tampa as well as our Development Center in Kolkata, India in anticipation of continued double-digit growth,” said Pratik Roychoudhury, CEO of Shield Watch.
Today’s IT is much different than the IT of years past. Modern day IT goes far beyond traditional infrastructure maintenance & support, to include ecommerce, digital marketing, software monitoring & support, creation of custom LOB (Line of Business) applications and mobile apps. For far too long, SMBs have not had a one-stop solution for all of these objectives. Shield Watch, with its industry-leading LEVER IT℠ framework, is able to help businesses achieve a stable IT infrastructure, while increasing their revenue and driving deeper engagement with their client base using Information Technology.
“LEVER IT℠ was conceived to act as the joint CIO & CTO for businesses that struggle to hire for these important roles due to the cost implications. The highly structured framework has proven itself to be an indispensable tool for SMBs seeking to innovate and transform their business within a limited budget,” said Tom Perricone, President of Shield Watch.
“We have come such a long way within a year of the deployment of the LEVER IT℠ process. We have a stable and secured IT infrastructure, launched an industry-first telemedicine APP for accident victims as well as deployed a formidable digital marketing effort that has generated significant revenue growth, all through the LEVER IT℠ framework”, says Dr. Edward Leonard, Founder & President of Florida Wellness Group, that owns and operates five full-service Primary Care clinics, a Telemedicine operation and owner of two Chiropractic Franchisees.
Most traditional IT-MSP companies focus only on managing and enhancing the current IT infrastructure. But what the SMB market really needs is IT Strategists and IT Maintenance personnel coupled into one team. Business owners today are asking “How do we maintain and secure our IT environment and how do we leverage technology to grow and scale our business?” The one-of-a-kind LEVER IT℠ process from Shield Watch answers both of those questions and is becoming an indispensable tool for SMB business owners.
The 25-person law office, de la Parte & Gilbert located in downtown Tampa, Florida is already experiencing the positive effects of LEVER IT℠. “LEVER IT℠ is helping to make it easier for us to interface with our clients by leveraging our existing technology investment. We know we have to utilize leading-edge technology to maintain a competitive advantage,” said Jeanne Higby, COO of de la Parte & Gilbert, PA.
“Our step-by-step process allows us to manage and secure our clients’ IT infrastructure while taking a strategic and holistic view of the technology footprint as a whole. We help our clients maintain their IT Infrastructure, grow their businesses, find new sales and distribution channels, increase market share and build deeper relationships with their customers through an unmatched combination of managed technology, software development, digital marketing and virtual CTO services. That’s a transformational way to help our clients build an invaluable IT-driven competitive advantage,” says Pratik Roychoudhury, CEO of Shield Watch.
