A corporation's competitive advantage can be attained through guarded intellectual property, a vaunted sales force or hyper-efficient business processes. However an efficient IT department, strategically positioned within a corporation’s organizational design, can also serve as a driving force to help the business identify strategic opportunities to attain competitive advantage. Learn how The Warranty Group IT drove a major transformation to realize not only cost savings company-wide and new revenue generation, but also helped the business attain increased competitive advantage in 12 months.
