Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, has added CMIT Solution’s President and CEO, Jeff Connally as a speaker at Navigate 2014, Continuum’s first user conference, Sunday, September 21 – Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Jeff is presenting, “Pivot to People. Stop Drowning in Devices,” where he addresses the question of what happens when MSPs focus on the role, workflow, efficiency and productivity of the SMB staff member. One of the largest managed services providers in the nation, CMIT Solutions is a Silver Sponsor of Navigate 2014.
“Traditionally, the IT support industry has taken a device-centric view of the market problem,” said Jeff Connally. “As the number of devices used by a typical SMB staff member has gone from one to four or five in many cases, the market problem has radically changed. I'm looking forward to sharing my insights regarding how this new reality provides those able to adjust their market strategy to both increase their value to current clients and capture new market share.”
Jeff Connally has more than 30 years of experience in the IT/SMB market. He began his career with IBM as a Systems Engineer and went on to start and grow several businesses providing technology to small business. He currently runs CMIT Solutions, a 140 office company based in Austin Texas that leverages the franchise business model in delivering enterprise class technology solutions to the SMB market.
CMIT Solutions’ franchisees across the country utilize Continuum’s single unified managed services solution, including intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) software backed by industry-leading 24x7x365 Network Operations Center (NOC). Additionally, many organizations offer Continuum’s award-winning backup and disaster recovery solution – Vault, and have integrated Continuum’s Service Desk into their offering, providing a seamless extension of the RMM which resolves simple and complex issues efficiently.
In his Navigate 2014 session, Jeff reveals the secret sauce to how MSPs can powerfully impact the bottom line of their business and entrepreneur customers. The IT services industry has focused on “managed devices” as its measure of success, but no more. Jeff will show MSPs how to pivot to a radically different point of view of the SMB staff member.
