Attendees learn what already works for office equipment companies accelerating profits and how to adapt these strategies to your business. The session covers four proven keys to building a profitable IT managed services business and accelerating growth, including 1) Adopting a business model created specifically for managed services, 2) Leveraging a fully integrated technology and services platform that drives operational efficiencies and optimizes margins, 3) Identifying strategic IT service company acquisition targets and 4) Enabling sales teams to identify high-value managed IT services opportunities.
