Jamaica-based provider tTech Limited has overcome some pretty unique challenges, being in the market that they are. Not only does the shop provide the majority of its services remotely, but they also need special software applications to deliver their services.
CEO Christopher Reckord talks here about the company’s extremely interesting position and perspective, and how their efforts have paved the way for them to impressively scale up.
Channel Futures: What was the single biggest technology or business decision that drove your company’s growth in the past year? How did it do so?
Christopher Reckord: tTech Limited is a unique IT services provider in Jamaica in that it provides the majority of its services remotely — and more importantly, proactively.
As such, we need special software applications to execute and deliver our services. In other words, a remote monitoring and management (RMM) application. We also require tools to track all support activities and ensure invoices are generated accurately and timely. This is the professional services automation (PSA) application.
In 2017, we completed the installation of new RMM software that allows us to remotely support a wider range of customers and scale the delivery of our services. Toward the end of 2017, we completed the first phase of our process upgrades with the implementation of our new PSA software, paving the way to scale up in 2018.
The newly implemented PSA tool will capture customer feedback for our services in almost real time giving us the ability to continuously measure customer satisfaction, and opportunities for improvement on an ongoing basis. We selected Continuum as our RMM tool, and we selected ConnectWise as our PSA tool.
In 2017 tTech also significantly increased its marketing efforts, both traditionally and digitally. On the traditional side, in addition to print media advertising, we began hosting a number of in-person thought leadership breakfast presentations around topics that the IT leadership of existing customer and prospects organizations would find valuable.
