Automation is what drives efficiency and profitability within managed service practices. However, the goal of automation is not to eliminate or replace human labor, but to increase productivity and quality beyond what is possible with your existing human resources. Simply put, when properly implemented, automation can net as much as three to four times the original output with no increase in current labor costs. When poorly implemented, you will save only a fraction of current labor costs. In this episode of MSP:360°, you’ll get tips to successfully incorporate automation into your IT services business, so you can realize the efficiency gains you need to take on more clients and grow your business without hiring additional human resources.

Discover how to utilize your managed service tool for recurring revenue and supporting your break/fix clients. Whether you're just testing the managed services offering or 100% focused on recurring revenue, you probably have break/fix clients who "don't want to fix what's not broken". Meaning, they're not quite ready to move with you to a managed services contract. However, there's a remote monitoring and management (RMM) tool that will allow you to drive your managed services to clients while still making money on break/fix clients.
In this episode, you’ll hear how one IT solution provider transformed his business and increased recurring revenue by converting break/fix clients to a managed services contract, while more efficiently and effectively serving his break/fix clients using an RMM solution.
Making the move from break/fix to managed services requires not only a commitment from your clients, but a commitment from your business and staff as well. Converting your clients from break/fix to managed services is only part of the transition with the other part being the transformation of your business's operations and changing the way your staff now needs to think and work.
This episode outlines best practices for transforming your business operations and your staff's mindset to make the move to managed services. Learn how one IT solution provider was able to successfully change their business model from break/fix to managed services and find out what steps and tools they used to sell the concept of managed services to their teams, convert clients to managed services, acquire more clients, set compensation plans, build new business and staff processes, and more.
Patch management seems like a given for today’s IT solution providers, but are you actually doing it and doing it properly for your clients?

Do you plan on them interacting with your clients? If so, hiring goes way beyond the geek speak. Remember, we are hiring people, not certifications.

Downtime is lost productivity, every time. As a managed service provider (MSP), your job is to get your clients back up and running quickly and efficiently. But VPN only enables you to remote control a computer’s keyboard, video and mouse when the computer is operational. Intel’s vPro KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) technology enables remote management and connectivity even if the OS is not operational or if a PC is shutdown.
In this episode, Drew McCallum, Senior Product Manager at LabTech Software, and Eric Townsend, SMB & MSP Marketing Director for Intel Corporation, discuss how you can use Intel’s vPro technology to make faster repairs, avoid customer site visits and improve customer service levels, which all lead to increased revenue.
As a managed service provider (MSP), you know the importance of achieving standardization across operating systems and application software in order to maximize service delivery efficiencies, customer satisfaction and profitability. Industry best practices suggest establishing specific baseline requirements based on the role of the operating system or application software in the infrastructure.
One area where MSPs have struggled with achieving standardization is with antivirus software. While most MSPs would like antivirus to be included in their managed services contracts, many clients insist on retaining their existing solution. For an MSP, this means managing dozens of different antivirus solutions across hundreds of endpoints.
In this episode, a panel of antivirus solution leaders (ESET, Symantec, VIPRE) discuss best practices for keeping your clients protected from security threats, as well as strategies for migrating your clients away from their self-pay antivirus solution to your managed services antivirus solution.

In this episode, Kevin Gibson, Senior Product Manager at LabTech Software, discusses five key best practices you can utilize to differentiate your services so that you not only survive, but thrive in this challenging economic environment.
Tapping into the power of automation is one of the largest hurdles an IT service provider must overcome to provide consistent, repeatable IT service delivery. By mastering automation, an IT service provider can successfully deliver consistent, repeatable service in a very controlled and organized fashion, resulting in improved client satisfaction and the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are effectively maintaining their clients' IT systems.
The correct incentive for applying automation is to increase productivity and quality beyond what is possible with current human labor levels, so as to realize economies of scale and predictable quality levels. The incorrect application of automation, which occurs most frequently, is an effort to eliminate or replace human labor. Simply put, whereas the correct application of automation can net as much as three to four times the original output with no increase in current human labor costs, the incorrect application of automation can only save a fraction of current labor level costs.
In this episode of MSP:360, Vernon Southmayd, Senior Product Manager at LabTech Software, and Dave Purscell, President and CEO of Technology Navigators, provide tips and best practices to successfully incorporate automation into your IT services business so you can provide consistent, repeatable service to your clients and realize the gains in profitability that you're looking for.
As the amount of data stored on servers and workstations continues to grow, it becomes even more important to ensure client data is protected against unexpected loss. Yet, a large number of enterprises in North America and Europe don't have a disaster recovery plan in place and many have never even thought about it. Instead, as their IT service provider, your clients depend on you to protect them from IT-related losses. That means it's up to you to educate them on the importance of backup and disaster recovery and the potentially catastrophic ramifications of data loss. This episode of MSP:360° will show you how.
Featuring a panel discussion comprised of backup and disaster recovery solution experts from CA Technologies, Symantec and VaultLogix, you’ll hear tips for educating your clients and selling your backup and disaster recovery solution as part of your managed services offering, as well as learn best practices to ensure your clients’ data is always protected.
