"Automation almost always results in greater efficiency, higher consistency of the service and greater profit margins," said Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance. For managed service providers, automation is the name of the game. Without it, the resources and time devoted to manually performing IT tasks would eat away at your productivity and, ultimately, your bottom line. But automating your internal operations can span a range of MSP software, posing challenges. The proliferation of MSP software products, integration issues and the diverse demands of a customer base are among the barriers an MSP must overcome to transform its operations into a well-oiled machine.
In this three-part handbook, we explore several facets of automation within an MSP business. First, we provide an overview of MSP software staples, such as remote monitoring and management tools, used to drive IT processes.
