Six Reasons Why a VAR Should Add Managed Services
By ConnectWise | 18/2/2019

As a value-added reseller in the technology space, the impact of rapid changes in the VAR landscape may have hit home with you. Pricing is becoming increasingly competitive. In an already low-margin environment, numbers continue to shrink, putting enormous pressure on achieving a survivable - let alone impressive - bottom line.

We’re not talking about one-time implementation and training, or even occasional reactive product support. Managed service providers (MSP) deliver full-fledged, on-going, proactive monitoring and management of customers’ IT environments, resulting in (and here’s the best part) a monthly recurring revenue stream.
