CMIT Solutions Refused to Participate in Recession

Nation's Leading Small Business IT Franchise Expanded at 50 Percent Pace During Downturn

October 19, 2010 // // AUSTIN, Texas – CMIT Solutions, the information technology partner to America's small businesses, has been relentless in its refusal to participate in the U.S. economic downturn.

"Plain and simple, it's a winning business model," said Jeff Connally, president and CEO of Austin, Texas-based CMIT Solutions. "We hit home hard on two key differentiators: First, we give downsized corporate America professionals or those seeking to make a career change a c successful business model that fills a critical need today; second, small business owners can't find the type of IT solutions we provide with tremendous affordability anywhere else."

During the tumultuous past two-plus years in the American economy, CMIT Solutions has flourished as a franchise. Nationwide, the company added 38 new offices in 2009, 26 new offices in 2008, and is continuing exciting growth in 2010.

Additional key metrics indicating the concept's strength include:

  • The number of client computers the company manages is up 144%
  • The number of client servers the company services is up 154%
  • Revenue is up nearly 20% in 2010 vs. 2009 (revenue was up 29% in 2009 vs. 2008)

"Momentum is on our side," added Connally, who bought out all other CMIT Solutions shareholders earlier this year to take complete ownership of the franchise company. "And, we're not resting on our laurels. The end of 2010 is a key growth period for us. The outlook for 2011 is equally as bright."

Awarding individual and multi-territory franchises, as well as Area Developer agreements, CMIT Solutions offers a timely opportunity to become involved with a company that is in the right place at the right time. With strong demand and low overhead, CMIT Solutions has proven to be a recession-resistant business in a growing market segment.

As a strategic and trusted business advisor, CMIT Solutions enables its clients to focus on their top priorities—building and maintaining a thriving business by offering solutions, as opposed to simply selling technology. CMIT Solutions relieves the stress that comes with IT issues by providing unlimited IT support at an affordable monthly flat-fee. This approach increases productivity and decreases business risk. In addition, CMIT Solutions helps its clients grow their businesses and reduce costs associated with technology.

Each CMIT Solutions franchise owner operates independently and, unlike local IT consultants, has access to CMIT Solutions' well-known technology partners including Dell, Microsoft, Intuit and Symantec. Being part of a national franchise also provides the opportunity to utilize a large consulting network of experienced business owners and corporate support staff.

Entrepreneurs wanting to own a CMIT Solutions franchise need $55,000 to $80,000 in working capital, plus $45,000 for the franchise fee. CMIT franchisees are given a sizable territory, based on ZIP codes, and can expect to have 2,000 to 3,000 prime target businesses in their protected territory.
