The last couple of months have been especially exciting for our partnership with Technology Assurance Group (TAG) . We've had the opportunity to come together for a few events, including TAG's Annual Convention and an educational webinar series for MSPs. Technology Assurance Group (TAG) is an organization that brings together communications companies in North America including IT, telecommunications, AV, Surveillance, Video and Telepresence, Managed Services and Managed Print.
This past week, TAG hosted their 15th Annual Convention! Continuum had the chance to meet with the members of TAG in the beautiful, historic city of Savannah, Georgia. We were thrilled to be Elite sponsors and enjoyed recognizing our TAG partners for their achievements this year.
And the TAG Partner of the Year Award Goes to...
This year's annual conference was a total success, as described by our director and account executive of telecommunications, Keith Fotta. He described the event as, "a terrific show where a lot of great ideas were shared and developed between TAG members and Continuum." We were also very excited to announce Continuum's TAG Partner of the Year Award at the conference! This award went to Bluefox Group, an organization dedicated to "optimizing existing IT assets by extending the useful life of each asset." Eric Wood, the President of the Blue Fox group was presented the award for their growth and commitment to the managed IT services space. The award was given to the company with the highest revenue, revenue growth and breadth of services.
Catch TAG at Navigate 2015!
Continuum also gave away a free ticket to our annual user conference, Navigate 2015 in Vegas, baby! TAG will be there, sponsoring our Partner Pavillion, if you missed your chance to network with them this time around.
Weren't Able to Attend?
Here are some pictures below of our booth, presentation and friends over at TAG.
As you can see, TAG's conference had various compelling speakers that covered topics like a 2015 industry outlook of the channel, how to attract new clients and redefining sales for greater achievement.
You Can Always Follow Our Event Involvement on Social Media!
We also joined together to create a three part webinar series with TAG to share expert advice in revenue growth strategies with our MSPs. Our first two webinars were very well received by our partners. The first, Targeting the Right MSP Audience & Making an Impact on the Decision Maker, helped MSPs find out how to begin closing accounts with ease. Dale Stein, the Co-founder of TAG, hosted the webinar and shared his strategies for selling managed services effectively by targeting the lowest hanging fruit in the market, approaching the right decision maker and building strong prospect relationships.
The conclusion of the TAG webinar series will wrap up with our third webinar, What Do You Do on the First MSP Appointment. After targeting the right prospects, setting up an appointment, what's next? We'll be revealing the right series of questions to ask to seal the deal! Register below.
It was a pleasure attending this event, and we look forward to continue enabling our TAG partners to accelerate their growth and potential in the managed services vertical.
