meeting

As we get prepared for our Financial Management course in Calgary, we wanted to take a moment to share with you some of the ways that TAG can help your business succeed. Not only do we have the industry connections, know-how, and resources to give you a leg up on the competition, but we also provide business training and consulting services. We want our Members to be more profitable. That means more than just increasing sales and improving marketing. We share vital financial management best practices and strategies, so that you can better plan for financial achievements. Or you can join a webinar on innovative marketing and selling yourself as a trusted adviser to customers. There are regular classes that will help you step into new markets and technologies, or improve your current offerings. Experts will share operations management secrets and present tried-and-true methods for improving customer relationships.

TAG offers these business and industry courses live in the US and Canada or through webinars online. In some cases, our partners will offer training as well, such as how to combat cyber attacks from Webroot, or how to better improve your web presence from Atomic8Ball. If you’re interested in a topic, but don’t see a relevant event listed on our site, take a look at our library of resources – created just for our Members! We’re always adding new knowledge from the industry experts among our Members and Partners.

Still looking for something more? We also offer one-on-one coaching to help your business with specific challenges and planning. Our goal is helping you towards a more efficient and effective way of working. Don’t wait! Contact us today for further information.

Great Networking Opportunities

Posted on: April 24th, 2017 by admin

We had a great time with the TAG Convention in Houston and would like to thank everyone for coming out to this event. It was a great way for our many members to connect with each other, talk about their challenges and successes, as well as have some good fun. The breakout sessions were informative, the Top Golf was a great competition, and we learned a lot from our Keynote Speakers, Colonel Mike Mullane & Jim Cathcart.

We also enjoyed some fantastic presentations from:

Kelly Ethington from CTS

Tommy Vaughn from Central Technology Solutions

our own Zach Liczynski, Tim Schatz, & Brian Suerth

Ruthann Black from Black CSI

Mark Wadnizak from Voice Smart Networks

Maggie Tristan & Tom Klosterman from ATS

Some topics at the convention included the big Toshiba news, as well as developments in access control and security solutions. Aside from the business talk, one of our attendees said that it was great to “get to know [other Members] more on a personal level vs. just business”.

But this isn’t our only even for Members! Throughout the year we have STAR Meetings, training sessions, and other events where you can connect to other Members. Take advantage of these opportunities to learn about how others have expanded their businesses, learned from mistakes, and their creative marketing tactics. We always look forward to bringing everyone together for a wonderful time together.

Your Partner in Creative Marketing

Posted on: March 12th, 2017 by admin

While many of our Members bring their own marketing experiences and know-how to the TAG network, its a fact that on their own, small to medium-sized businesses won’t be able to achieve the same marketing successes of larger companies. That’s where TAG steps in, to bring together the different pieces of successful marketing that we see floating around the larger network, for the benefit of everyone. We’ve offered classes, workshops, and our own Creative Marketing Program to assist our Members with advanced marketing plans and strategies for their businesses.

All TAG Members can choose to receive basic to advanced level marketing training, filling in the gaps of our business owners and their teams. We offer marketing, public relations, and promotional materials that can be customized to fit your region and specific product offerings. Instead of always having to re-invent the wheel to market to different customer segments or promote particular services, you can use our resources to send out quality materials to entice customers. Don’t worry – your customers won’t be seeing the same marketing from you and your competitors. We actively work to differentiate our Members from the competition and stay ahead.

TAG wants to help its Members be successful. That is why we won’t just dump lots of brochures and materials in your laps. We’ll teach you how to best market your business in a creative, competitive manner, using the knowledge we’ve gathered from our partners and Members.

Network of Strategic Partners

Posted on: February 23rd, 2017 by admin

Every business owner knows the struggle of building a company up from nothing. In the beginning, but especially as you look to grow your business, every assistance is welcome. Over time, you build up a network of partners, mentors, experts, suppliers, and friends to support you. Working with the Technology Assurance Group has the benefit of being able to access a huge network of strategic partners, all looking forward to successful collaboration. All of our Members benefit from the additional products, services, and discounts that comes with these partnerships.

These Partners have been specially selected for their customer support and emphasis on quality. They provide a range of consulting, financing, software, certification, business, and IT solutions. They include distributors and manufacturers selling leading-edge products, such as Watchguard, Tigerpaw, Zultys, and Continuum, just to name a few. Whether you want your business to put more of a focus on security solutions or healthcare IT, you can find support within our list of partners. We can help you get rebates, discounts, and better deals than non-Members. In addition, you can benefit from workshops and meetings with these partners or talk to them at conferences. We help you with marketing products from our Partners, share tips and tricks for your sales, and enjoy a greater buying power together. You’re no longer a single fish in a wide ocean, but part of a larger group working towards the same destination.

Improving your Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty

training

This year, make a resolution to focus on your current customers. At TAG, we believe education about how to better focus on customer advocacy and relationships is one of the best ways to achieve increased sales and profitability. We teach you how to look at each of your customers’ industries and particular needs, to offer the right solutions for their requirements. Instead of just being one of their vendors, you become a partner – finding new revenue opportunities and growing as they increase their business.

Our Members have seen significant growth through the Customer Advocacy Program, especially in their own business. Increased retention of key team members, new leaders and specialists emerging, and achievement of internal objectives are just some of the benefits to their organizations. You’ll see the results in employee productivity, profitability, and your competitive edge. By joining our network, you benefit from the support of other businesses who have similar goals and challenges. Our network can support you with additional resources, information, and purchasing power. Combined with our Customer Advocacy Program, you will soon be on the best path towards customer satisfaction and retention.

Success with Strategic Teams for Advancement and Reward (STAR)

Posted on: December 6th, 2016 by admin

Do you enjoy the chance to exchange industry tips, developments, and pitfalls at conferences? There’s no need to wait that long to network. Through our STAR teams, members can share their unique experiences and knowledge to the benefit of the entire team. When experts come together, everybody profits for the exchanges. We help our STAR teams to meet several times a year for productive, engaging sessions, because we believe that success and advancement can only happen through collaboration.

We’ve been hearing from members, such as CIT , that they enjoyed the presentations given by fellow STAR members at the recent Baltimore meeting. Some of the topics discussed were how to ensure monthly recurring income and the benefits of agent programs. In addition to the networking and exchange of industry developments, our members enjoy the chance to socialize after all of the business talk. Some members also take advantage of the chance to visit local sights as part of their travel.

You and your business are not fighting a lone battle for advancement in unified communication and telecommunications. We here at TAG are here to help you and other members achieve your goals.

Using Group Purchasing Power to Your Advantage

Posted on: October 4th, 2016 by admin

It’s easy to see how one lone company isn’t getting the best deals when dealing with suppliers on their own. Small or large businesses, it is still the same problem – negotiation power. This is where a larger group can help you with leverage, support, and savings. TAG Members receive these financial advantages through rebates and partnerships. We have carefully constructed good relationships to build a network beneficial for both Members and our Strategic Partners. The savings that our membership brings in purchasing discounts are only one of the many membership benefits TAG provides. Learn more here
