Managed Service Providers often have to be all things to all people. As IT services grow broader and more complex keeping skills up to date and resources in place to meet customer demands can become a difficult challenge.
Occasionally an MSP will need to add a new competence to its portfolio in order to win an RFP which primarily consists of core services but with elements outside of the MSP’s standard service offering. Often these additional services are a small part of the contract value and do not in themselves justify the creation of resources and skills internally.
Often an MSP can find itself with resource shortages at peak times or needing to fall back on trusted contractors in order to meet demands during the holiday period or new business onboarding projects.
Partnerships and partner services are there to remove the headache from such issues flexibly providing the skills and resources required as and when they are needed.
Expertware already provides services to a number of managed services providers and has extensive skills in remote 3rd level support, BI & Analytics, Monitoring and Cyber Security, Cloud services, and application development. Our staff can work remotely or on premise across Europe using an MSP’s own toolset or through utilising Expertware’s own Integrated Operations Centre (IOC), providing additional skills to fill gaps in an MSP portfolio or working as part of the MSP’s own team through resource augmentation in times of high demand.
By partnering with Expertware an MSP can rest assured that they have the skills and resources required to grow their business or extend their portfolio reach. Expertware can work completely behind the scenes as a sub contract partner or we can engage in the bid process and customer onboarding projects to improve win rate and customer retention through additional services and innovation programs.
Typically, a partnership agreement is drawn up that specifies the scope of services and cost model to be used. The MSP then has complete flexibility around when services are call upon paying only for services used based on a pre-defined cost model.
