Technology historians tell us that the idea of cloud computing dates back to at least the mid-’90s.

That’s about a 1700 percent increase. While this is incredible news, dramatic growth predictions like this often change the dynamics of an industry, making it much more competitive. And for managed service providers (MSPs), the dynamics are changing fast.

Where many MSPs struggle is predicting how much time they’re going to invest in monitoring and troubleshooting customers’ IT assets and then establishing a monthly price based on that estimate.

You’ve hired a new employee: congratulations! It took hours of work and lots of expense to make that happen, and your team is relieved to know help is on the way. The new employee is excited too. They show up on day one, ready and eager to begin the next chapter of their working lives. But there’s just one problem: nothing was prepared. The receptionist doesn’t know who they are; their manager isn’t at that location; and they have no desk, computer or phone. At this point they are beginning to think they may have made a bad choice.
