We maximized the success of our operations by providing Professional Services. Our professional services organization had the technical expertise and industry experience to provide the highest level of service and support throughout the solution design and implementation process. Our technicians refined new systems to unique business processes, removing the burden for our customers, their operations and IT staff.


We minimized or eliminated installation problems we offered, by consulting and selling subscription-based Managed Services. At the time our price point average to manage network security was one of the first subscription models in the nation, after hardware, software & installation costs to monitor system through enterprise alerts (0ur call center help desk was additional). We enabled our customers to focus on their operations instead of data, where we were the first to offer subscription Managed Services within the Radiant reseller channel with our partnership with SonicWALL and the creation of enterprise reporting back in 2004-08 – after which our  solution offering was purchased by Radiant Systems. We supported the network and credit card PCI compliancies at a time it was just becoming a sense of urgency with new regulations.  We provided services that relieved small, med, and large organizations of the burden of managing and supporting their own IT infrastructure.


In 2004, as a small reseller with less than 10 employees, and growing to a staff of 100 within a 4 year period, we maximized our customer’s service expectations & options by employing technicians in areas across the country. We could service and support one of our national accounts, who had 30 or more stores within a 75 mile radius. Our service pricing model was based on these financial principals before using the reseller channel as a partner. We were able to grow our company to meet the need to manage up-time and minimize business disruption by providing tiered pricing for Maintenance Services. DEPOT, 7-5, 7-11, 5 days and 7/24 –

Even as a reseller prior to Radiant System purchase, we led the industry with our field service teams in every part of the country. We were dedicated to providing prompt and 24/7 quality services. We consistently achieved service levels above 97% and customer satisfaction levels greater than 98%. As we grew our reseller business we became more valuable to Radiant Systems, as an investment into our processes. Our service team supported not only Radiant hardware and software; we support several third-party hardware and software applications.


As a leader assigning and managed dedicated Service Account Management professionals to be the single point of contact for key accounts, where we maximized our customers return on investment for major accounts and enterprise customers. We grew our business by assisting our customers in their growth.


We resolved our customer’s issues quickly from a single point of contact with our level 1 & level 2 Help Desk service offers. Our Help Desk call center was on call 24x7x365 with a highly-experienced team of passionate professionals to troubleshoot system issues to resolution.
