Hoboken, New Jersey - October 21, 2010 – eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support consultant in the Hoboken, NJ and NYC areas, announces that it is a finalist in the prestigious NY Enterprise Report 2010 Small Business Awards competition. The recent notification singles out eMazzanti as one of eight competing companies in the Sales and Marketing category. Overall, eMazzanti competed with several hundred other New York-area firms for the honor.
“This will be the second year that eMazzanti has been a finalist in the competition,” notes Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “The recognition is always great to have. It’s also an indicator of our commitment to vibrant area commerce and to the businesses that make up our customer-base.”
Supporting the Local Community
For example, eMazzanti Technologies continues to sponsor the New York Red Bulls and its favorite player, Kevin “Goldie” Goldthwaite. As part of the first season in the new stadium, eMazzanti hosted several events for training and customer appreciation. Some of these events included on field access, time with Kevin Goldthwaite for signatures and personal attention by Red Bulls staff for eMazzanti customer needs.
“We love MLS football and the action doesn’t get any better than the New York Red Bulls,” said Carl Mazzanti, chief executive officer, eMazzanti Technologies. “The extra benefit for us it that the fan-base is also our target customer, a combination that’s hard to beat.”
eMazzanti views the Red Bull sponsorship as an excellent way to entertain client, build relationships with prospects or to reward hard-working employees throughout the year. It’s also an excellent way to support the local community.
eMazzanti Honored by Governor Corzine
Another example is the recognition eMazzanti received during the last 12 months from the state.
New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine has singled out eMazzanti Technologies for special recognition. The honor comes in part because of the firm’s eighth year anniversary and its on-going commitment to business excellence in the state. “This is the second time eMazzanti Technologies has won area-wide recognition,” noted Jennifer Mazzanti, President, eMazzanti Technologies. “We consider it a privilege to be singled out as one of the leading technology firms in the area both by local civic leaders as well as major tech OEMs such Microsoft and the new Windows 7 OS, HP and WatchGuard.”

The eMazzanti sales and marketing category entry focuses on leveraging customer, vendor and employee relationships.
Sales and Marketing Expertise Based on Relationships
eMazzanti’s sales and marketing program has been a text-book focus on the basics: relationships with a few twists thrown in. For example, eMazzanti is passionate about maintaining high customer and employee satisfaction, garnering referrals from existing customers, making sure its vendors are treated well and finding ways to leverage OEM relationships to enhance marketing efforts while lowering overall costs. The results have been impressive.
Referrals from Existing Customers Yields Double Digit Growth Over 10 Years
It happened in 2009, just like it happened in the 9 prior years: consistent, double-digit growth. The best sales people eMazzanti has is its cadre of existing customers. Customer satisfaction is fiercely sought after and managed. For example, the entire Trouble Ticket system is built on a 24×7 solution that provides instant response for customers that subscribe to its unique eCare family of services.
Leveraging OEM Relationships Cuts Marketing Budget by 50%
During 2009, eMazzanti Technologies continued to actively pursue deep relationships with OEMs such as Microsoft, HP and WatchGuard as part of its overall marketing program. In each instance the relationship has grown because eMazzanti has committed itself to the understanding, training and marketing of top industry products and brands. eMazzanti has achieved top-partner honors from each of the OEMs as well. The benefit to eMazzanti’s customers has translated into written and video case studies, the ability to use “first-mover”, leading edge technology and worldwide marketing exposure at launch events, a rare opportunity for most of eMazzanti’s customers. Litzky PR and Mayer Berkshire, current customers of eMazzanti, explain the benefits they received from a recent case study opportunity with Microsoft.
Internal Marketing-Zero Turnover Key to Customer Satisfaction and Sales
Over the last four years, eMazzanti has had zero staff turnover. This consistency not only validates the level of employee satisfaction but delivers a consistent level of service and satisfaction to its customer base. “Not many companies think of internal-marketing to employees to make sure they attract and retain the best,” said Mazzanti. “In marketing-math, zero employee turnover equals 95% customer satisfaction levels and double digit growth.”
Vendor Engagement and Relationships Highly Valued
eMazzanti treats each vendor like one of its customers. “Happy vendors give us their best ideas and help us rapidly solve problems,” said Mazzanti. “In return we pay them on time, seek their counsel regularly and make sure they are getting what they need from us.”
