Small businesses are starting to replace employee PCs with tablets and smartphones — and they're saving time and money, while helping employees be more customer-responsive.
Barbara Adams opened a CMIT Solutions franchise in Hallandale Beach and will service customers in the area including Hollywood, Dania and South East Fort Lauderdale.
Austin-based CMIT Solutions is targeting the Sacramento area for five franchises of its outsourced information technology services business in the next few years.
The company has added 17 new franchises across the country this year, bringing the company up to 137 locations, according to Sheri Vandermause, vice president of franchise development.
CMIT Solutions, a provider of information technology services to the small-business community, has plans to open three franchise stores in the Baton Rouge area. The Austin-based company currently has a shop operating in Tickfaw—CMIT Solutions of The Florida Parishes. Jason Gilbreth, a spokesman for CMIT, says each Baton Rouge location could eventually employ 15 workers, while possibly opening operations as a home office. CMIT also has plans to expand into New Orleans.
Technology services company CMIT Solutions Inc. has opened its fourth franchise in Eureka.
The company has additional franchise offices in Chesterfield, Clayton and St. Charles. CMIT Solutions provides small- to mid-sized companies with IT consulting services and technology solutions.
Steps big and small are needed to prepare, local companies say
Everyone hopes they won’t have to use a disaster plan, but local small-business owners who have suffered a major loss urge people to develop one nonetheless.
Susan and Lawrence Crane of The Party Concierge are glad they did some disaster preparation. An Aug. 6 fire started in a neighboring business and consumed The Party Concierge's 40,000-square-foot space, including all of the props and merchandise of the 19-year-old event decor and design business. Their damages are estimated at $5 million.
Like so many business owners, Helen Feng left corporate culture to control her own destiny.
With a heavy information technology background, Feng selected a CMIT Solutions franchise. Since June 2009, she has been the sole Las Vegas-area franchisee. Soon, she may have some company.
CMIT Solutions aims to open four or five Las Vegas franchises by the end of 2013.
"It's an area where we believe there's a void in the market," said Sheri Vandermause, vice president of franchise development.
