Savvy MSPs know that automation improves efficiency and strengthens their bottom line. In a nutshell, automation enables an MSP to reduce the amount of time its technicians spend handling routine or repetitive tasks, thus cutting costs for service delivery and freeing those techs to devote more attention to activities that generate more revenue.

Enabling Creativity Spurs Growth

It’s no secret that computers are more efficient than humans when it comes to performing repetitive work, while humans deliver superior results in situations that require creativity, critical thinking, and decision making. Part of the reason automation is so effective is because it enables MSPs to take advantage of these fundamental truths.

Freeing up your technicians for more appropriate endeavors presents benefits beyond simple cost savings. It also gives you the opportunity to differentiate yourself from other MSPs and position your business for future growth by finally enabling your technicians to see the forest for the trees.

When an MSP’s technicians are mired in routine administration and maintenance responsibilities—such as deploying security upgrades, performing regular disk cleanup, or managing tickets—there’s no time to step back and evaluate the overarching IT challenges that affect that particular client. And that means missed business opportunities.

More Time for Personalization

Proactively identifying a client’s IT challenges will help that client improve their business operations. This will not only differentiate you from other MSPs, it will also establish a foundation of trust upon which you can build long-term relationships with your customers; which, of course, is key to generating recurring, predictable revenue.

But an MSP can only design creative solutions to its clients’ business and IT challenges if its team has the time to identify those challenges. They need the bandwidth to consciously and continuously review each client’s business operations and craft powerful and personalized solutions.

Automation can solve that problem. Not only does it free up your IT team to focus on the specific issues each client faces, it also allows you to deliver a more comprehensive range of services individually tailored to those clients.

Today’s combination of automated and dynamic cloud services let you choose from an array of solutions for each of your clients, while still ensuring management is automated for maximum efficiency. The net result? You’ll boost your profitability by increasing customer satisfaction and long-term patronage, all while significantly reducing your management and operational costs.
