T-ROC Bringing Its Secret To The Rest Of Tech

T-ROC, which likes to refer to itself as the “best-kept secret for end-to-end retail enablement,” is expanding its service offerings to include the entire breadth of consumer electronics.

The company offers a spread of services as a retail outsourcer. Its Consumer Insight division provides focus groups and mystery shopping, while its Mobile Insight software division aids sellers with lead generation and employee tracking. It’s also able to help retailers with everything from consulting and design to store management and operation — including operating stores within stores. Past and present clients include Walmart, Apple, Macy’s, AT&T, T-Mobile and others.

T-ROC has a presence in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, with 4,800 W2 employees and a contingent workforce of over 15,000.

As part of its CE expansion, the company has brought on Laura Sorgenfrei as chief marketing officer, a new position for the company. Sorgenfrei will be tasked with leading the company in addressing the pain points of CE retailers and manufacturers, said T-ROC president/CEO Brett Beveridge in a recent call with TWICE, as well as how the company can develop products to address these issues.

Sorgenfrei has over two decades of industry experience, including product-launch experience and creating ROI program models. She helped launch retail in-store programs for such companies as Roku, Oculus, Beats by Dre, Parrot, Fossil and Nest, among others.

Last year T-ROC announced it was entering smart-home retail services, and has spent the last 12 months securing agreements with providers. The official launch date for the service is likely to be sometime this quarter, Beveridge said.

Meet Brett Beveridge of T-ROC in Coral Gables


Today we’d like to introduce you to Brett Beveridge.

Brett, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
During my senior year at the University of Miami in 1989, my friend and I started selling cell phones out of the back of a van. We would literally drive around and station ourselves in parking lots and businesses to sell cell phones, which were just becoming popular. In less than a year, we opened a retail store that became the largest independent mobile wireless retailer in the country at that time. Within seven years, my partners and I took that company public and sold it to Nextel. Start-ups felt natural to me, and I decided to keep going. During my time in the retail industry, I recognized many problems, particularly at big-box retailers where consultative sales people aren’t equipped to help customers understand and choose the latest in technology such as cell phones and rate plans. That sparked the idea to start The Revenue Optimization Companies (T-ROC), a parent company that houses four, stand-alone companies that each focus on a specific retail solution. I’ve now founded ten award-winning companies, and we assist the world’s most reputable companies and brands such as Apple, Walmart, T-Mobile, Comcast and many more.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think any entrepreneur will tell you that the road to success is never easy — you’re always going to have struggles and that’s how you learn, evolve and become better. I made the risky decision from the very beginning to stay independent and use my own money to start companies, even personally guaranteeing heavy bank loans because I believed in what we were doing. My first project came in 2007 — one year before the recession hit — so it was a grueling balancing act of gaining customers, losing customers and working very hard to find new customers. During that time, I didn’t take a paycheck, kept the company lean, and worked hard for new sales opportunities. I learned to speak “recession” language and landed clients by saving them money, while offering them more efficient ways to operate.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Revenue Optimization Companies – what should we know?
The Revenue Optimization Companies (T-ROC) houses four, stand-alone companies that each focus on a specific retail solution. We spend every waking hour finding ways to dramatically grow your revenue and reduce your costs through a unique combination of people and innovative technology. We’re best known for selling complicated stuff that we make easy for consumers to understand. I think of it like a doctor prescribing the best medicine for a patient: We prescribe solutions, which are the best technologies for your personal needs.

When it comes to what sets us apart, unlike other competitors, we own and operate our stores, which keeps us sharp and on top of what’s happening in our space. This allows us to help other companies run their stores more efficiently too.

One of my proudest accomplishments is that four companies that I’ve founded have now been recognized on the Inc. 500/5000 annual list of the fastest growing private companies a total of six times, including two companies in 2016. South Florida Business Journal has also recognized T-ROC as one of the best places to work three times, and I’m honored that our people love working with us. We’ve promoted more than a 110 people this year, with more to come!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Businesses like mine can be started anywhere because we are servicing national clients on a national basis. If you’re starting a company here, my advice is to make sure you can attract the right talent at the leadership level. While Miami does not have an overage of large businesses like New York, Los Angeles or Atlanta, our city does have a lot of support and ingredients for startups and entrepreneurs. The UM Life Science & Technology Park has incubators in it and there are community centers where inspiring entrepreneurs or startups can exchange ideas, network and create partnerships. Miami is a vibrant breeding ground for different talents, cultures and points of view, which leads to entrepreneurship.

Transforming sales teams through Workplace by Facebook

MIAMI, FL (Nov 10, 2017

Based in Coral Gables, Florida,The Revenue Optimization Companies (T-ROC) enables its clients to fulfill their sales performance needs through a variety of retail sales solutions. It has seen 264% growth over the last three years.



of the company is connecting in Workplace


are getting answers fast using Workchat


“We have four divisions and numerous projects within each. Workplace has increased awareness among employees about what we do and realize the opportunity here for career growth.”

Page Valgora, Director of Sales Enablement, T-ROC

Discovering a better way
With its mainly millennial workforce, T-ROC found Workplace to be the perfect solution to connect its employees: it’s easy to implement, requires no training and uses the Facebook platform young professionals are familiar with.

Page Valgora, Director of Sales Enablement explained: “We wanted employees to be active in the T-ROC community, contributing ideas, learning best practices and sharing successes.”

Now everyone at T-ROC is using Workplace—from the CEO, to administrative assistants. Specifically, Work Chat has become integral to its sales operations and enablement. It instantly connects employees through mobile or desktop to get answers, send files, or conduct video calls.

“When sales staff working independently in the field need answers fast, Work Chat is their lifeline,” said Page.

How Workplace helped
The impact of Work Chat on T-ROC’s sales team can be seen across the entire company’s operations. The organization has become more agile, allowing for spontaneous and lively dialogue on new ideas, products and campaigns that bring employees closer.

A national team of T-ROC employees represent a large wireless carrier advocating their brand while supporting and training their big box retail stores. Part of the job requires setting up displays for the brands they’re representing. To encourage quality setup, T-ROC leadership devised an impromptu contest, asking employees to share a photo of their display in a Workplace Group. The employee with the best display would win a gift card.

Employees participated enthusiastically. The contest increased team morale and gave leadership a new method to align teams on sales best practices. CEO and President, Brett Beveridge describes these activities as “a great way to make an immediate impact and drive the behaviors or productivity we want.”

The contest was executed in 48 hours, eliciting comments, gif-filled responses, and hundreds of reactions. This dynamic experience would not have been possible with email.

With more than 80% of employees using Workplace and 97% using Work Chat, Workplace has helped T-ROC remain agile, and increase productivity and knowledge sharing between its sales teams.

Next, T-ROC plans to explore integrations with Workplace bots to automate and make processes efficient. In particular, it wants to use a “thanks bot” to make employee recognition easier and transparent.

Fast 50 2017: Recognizing South Florida companies

MIAMI, FL (August 18, 2017)

Congratulations to all the companies that made our Fastest-Growing 50 Companies lists.

The companies recognized showed sustained revenue growth from 2014 to 2016, and are ranked by percent growth of revenue in that time span. They are ranked in two lists: 25 companies with over $25 million in 2016 revenue and 25 with under $25 million in 2016 revenue.

The list featuring companies with over $25 million in revenue boasted one company that actually grew to over $1 billion. This group was once again led by construction or construction-related businesses, which had eight representatives, followed by technology companies with four and staffing agencies with three. Last year, this List featured 11 companies from the construction industry. Hayes Locums LLC is the youngest company on the List, founded in 2012, while City National Bank is the oldest (1946), but it’s still growing.

On the list that includes companies with under $25 million in revenue, the technology sector placed eight companies. Alturna-Tech led this group – but not only this group. The company topped the list of 50 companies, due to its impressive growth percentage. Founded in 2013 and the newest of those on both lists, the IT solutions provider appears to be rocketing to stardom.

Kabat, Schertzer, De La Torre, Taraboulos & Co., an accounting firm based in Miami, has been servicing clients since 1976 and has been around longer than any of the other companies listed on the under $25 million list. Aside from the tech companies, this list shows some diversity in that we have engineering companies, accounting firms and general contractors mixed in with specialty food importers, a landscaping company and a gourmet spice producer/processor.

This illustrates that our South Florida business community is as diverse as it is robust. The South Florida Fast 50 companies were feted at an August 17 awards ceremony at Miami’s Jungle Island. The event was sponsored by BankUnited, Comcast Business and Daskal Bolton. Associate sponsors were the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and Oasis Outsourcing.

Fastest-growing companies: Revenue over $25M

#4: The Revenue Optimization Companies

At a time when many are proclaiming the death of traditional retail stores, Brett Beveridge’s company sees it as an opportunity for growth.
Beveridge is the CEO of Revenue Optimization Companies, a retail services company that advises retailers on how to lower costs and increase revenues. It has four divisions, each focused on a different retail solution.

Revenues for the company increased 174 percent between 2014 and 2016, and totaled $62.88 million in 2016. The company currently has more than 2,000 full-time employees, Beveridge said. One segment of the Coral Gables-based company places T-ROC sales teams inside existing retail stores, such as Walmart, to help sell technology products, such as mobile phones and home security. Another area of focus is gathering and analyzing metrics for its clients on consumers through mystery shopping, customer surveys and compliance audits.

Beveridge, who previously founded specialty wireless retailer Let’s Talk Wireless & Cellular, said he noticed from past experience that big box-retailers oftentimes were not adept at selling electronic or high-tech products and services. His new company helps solve that challenge by focusing on individual customers’ needs and truly understanding the technology behind the product, he said. Beveridge said that he sees continued growth in the technology side of retail. “There are a lot of retailers that are struggling and our companies are set to drive revenues and decrease costs,” Beveridge said.
