Nationwide Marketing Group Partners with TBI to Bring Business Technology Services to Retailers

Furniture World News



Nationwide Marketing Group recently announced a new partnership with TBI, one of the nation’s leading business-to-business technology service providers.


TBI partners with more than 100 different providers to give retailers access to a variety of business-critical services, including phone and voice services, location and data security, internet and cloud services, and more.


“Independent business owners have a unique passion and commitment to providing the best experience possible to any customer who walks through their door. But too often, they’re not given that same level of care by their business technology service providers,” says Eric Sindelar, director of connected services for Nationwide Marketing Group. “In working with the team at TBI, we’re giving our retailers the opportunity to find hidden cost savings that they may never have even considered, while providing them with some of the best customer support in the industry.”


With a phone call, Nationwide dealers can receive a free, zero-commitment cost analysis of their existing business technology solutions, courtesy of TBI. During that call, the TBI team will review a monthly service statement with the retailer and consult on any additional business needs they may have.


“In this day in age, there are no cookie-cutter solutions, just like there are no cookie-cutter customers,” says Marco Sanchez, regional vice president of sales for TBI. “Every business has different needs to consider, such as applications being used, compliances and security. And every organization is looking for ways to optimize their environments and reinvest those dollars in their businesses. Working together, we can connect NMG members with various solutions tailored to their unique needs. Plus, we provide technical expertise where needed, along with white-glove support to ensure implementations go smoothly.”


Once the analysis is completed by TBI, a quote is delivered to the retailer. From there, TBI works with the retail to get them up and running with their partner service providers. The entire process can be completed in as little as 10 days.


After participating in Virtual PrimeTime in March, TBI will be in Nashville for its first in-person PrimeTime this August 15-18. For more information or to register visit www.nationwideprimetime.com.
