Channel-centric enhancements include new division for high-growth MSPs and compliance-as-a-service content from Kaseya’s Powered Services platform
August 17, 2021 — MIAMI — Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the launch of the Connect IT Community. The collaborative online platform allows IT professionals to network with peers across the globe, share best practices and enhance their knowledge of the 27 modules of Kaseya’s IT Complete suite of solutions.
The company also announced several MSP-focused enhancements to help IT professionals take advantage of the competitive mergers and acquisitions (M&A) landscape and expand their businesses. These initiatives include a new division focused on high-growth MSPs as well as expanded content offerings through Powered Services Pro, Kaseya’s comprehensive acceleration platform that helps MSPs grow monthly recurring revenue (MRR) through tailored go-to-market content and one-on-one coaching.
“Though Kaseya’s customers are located across the globe in a number of industries, they all have one thing in common—the desire to make their IT environments more effective and efficient,” said Mike Puglia, Chief Strategy Officer at Kaseya. “Kaseya’s Connect IT Community, its new business unit and its latest Powered Services enhancements were all created to help IT professionals get the most out of the workflow-integrated IT Complete suite of solutions—allowing organizations to grow their bottom lines while eliminating the time wasted switching between disparate tools.”
