When running a managed service provider (MSP) business, the single largest part of the overall costs of doing business is the technicians that support your end customer – from straight salary and benefits, to training, transportation and managing the collection of their time, through to billing the customer. In this series of whitepapers, Karl Palachuk goes through the elements that you need to take into account to best manage your technicians’ time. This includes everything from how to structure their day and their priorities, to tracking their efforts to ensure that your business is being run in the most productive manner – ultimately driving the most profitability.

Although no prevention method is 100% fool proof, risk avoidance and taking proactive measures for preparedness are essential elements of the disaster recovery process. Still despite all the measures you take to avoid a disaster, you must assume that a disaster will happen. Having this mind-set will help shape your decisions when it comes to planning for IT disaster recovery.
Think of selling disaster recovery like selling insurance. You are trying to get a customer to give you money just in case something goes wrong. It’s just like car insurance, no one says to themselves, “I sure am glad I give hundreds of dollars a month to my insurance company!” That is until they get into an accident. Likewise your customers know it’s possible that data, applications, and systems can corrupt or fail, leaving their business partially or completely inoperative. They realize the need for disaster recovery and that everything must be protected. But how do you put the right price on disaster recovery services so that both of you are happy?
