March 24 BTA Webinar to Focus on Managed IT Strategy
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
The 99th webinar in BTA's Building My Business Webinar Series is scheduled for 4 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, March 24. "Your Managed IT Services Strategy: Optimizing the Business Through Organic Growth or Acquisition" will be led by Mitch Morgan, partner at Growth Achievement Partners, and Mike Dudek, owner of Zygoquest Group.
In a recent BTA survey, the strategy of building a managed IT business was the number-one objective for dealers. Many have already entered this lucrative growth market and others are making plans to be successful in it. Many dealers are making the decision to grow internally versus acquiring a managed services provider (MSP). This webinar will assist in making that decision, as well as provide an update to the GAP/Continuum Business Model for Managed Services to guide your success whichever path you choose. This will be the first release of the updated model.
