Nation’s Leading Information Technology Company Presents Local Entrepreneur with its Prestigious Franchise of the Month Award
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The SMB (small and medium-sized business) community in Rochester can add another notch in its belt. One of its own, CMIT Solutions of Monroe, the area’s premier IT service provider that specializes in working with local small and medium-sized businesses, has earned a top national honor. For the month of September, the company presented Cheryl Nelan, president of CMIT Solutions of Monroe, with the coveted Franchise of the Month award. “Cheryl is one of the most driven and focused individuals I have ever met,” said Jeff Connally, president and CEO of Austin, Texas-based CMIT Solutions. “She has shown during the past few years just how talented she is as a business owner getting her business going on all cylinders.” Nelan has led CMIT Solutions of Monroe to the top of the CMIT Solutions franchise system in nearly every category the company tracks to determine the award winner, including client satisfaction, client retention, revenue growth, and the number of client devices managed. As a member of the company’s advisory board, she has also risen to the occasion and demonstrated additional leadership assisting other CMIT Solutions offices with problem solving and mentorship. “This is a tremendous honor for our CMIT Solutions of Monroe team. The hard work of our team is being recognized and that’s a testament to the approach we bring to work every day,” said Nelan, who will be celebrating her office’s three-year anniversary in January. “The greatest reward is hearing a heartfelt compliment describing how our team contributed to achieving a client’s goals.” A two-time award winner, Nelan was named Franchise of the Month for October of 2012 as well. Having achieved a 200% growth rate in the past year and a 100% growth rate during the course of the past nine months, both awards have been well deserved. Nelan owes much of her office’s success to strong customer service and an unwavering commitment to understanding her client’s core company objectives. CMIT Solutions’ services help companies keep their strategic IT goals in focus by ensuring their computer systems are running, their data is protected, their network is secure, and, most importantly, their employees are productive. As a result, business owners benefit from increased efficiency, strategic information technology advice, and the ability to implement technology changes to improve their competitive posture. CMIT Solutions’ franchise offices are independently owned and operated. Unlike most local IT consultants, CMIT Solutions has established cost-saving relationships with well-known technology partners including Dell, Microsoft, and Intuit. Plus, being part of a national franchise offers the opportunity to tap into a large consulting network of knowledgeable business owners and corporate support staff.
