Kaseya rolls out Powered Services offering

Managed service specialist adds a couple of out-on-the-box services that MSPs can take quickly to customers

Kaseya has rolled out some go-to-market-in-a-box offerings that are meant to make life easier for MSPs looking to quickly add some extra services.

The firm has cut the ribbon on its Kaseya Powered Services with netwrk monitoring and security as a service the areas it is starting with.

The firm has been under the leadership of CEO Fred Voccola for the last two years and some of the trends he has reacted to have been the increasing need for enterprise level technology from SMEs and the desire from MSPs to get help inceasing their revenues.

Security was one of the areas that he identified as being a major concern for SMEs and so it's no surprise that it is one of the first issues to be dealt with by the Powered Services offering.

“MSPs must continually look for an edge to differentiate their services and stay relevant in this competitive market. Selling a new service used to be hard, and required a substantial upfront investment to get it off the ground. The beauty of Kaseya Powered Services is that it allows MSPs to go to market with new services lines at record speed, and generate immediate revenue gains,” said Jim Lippie, general manager, cloud computing at Kaseya.

“We provide everything an MSP needs – including positioning, sales training, pricing, packaging and lead generation – so they can quickly and easily demonstrate their value, and get in the door with new customers. Our first two instalments of end user security and network monitoring as a service are only the beginning. We have big plans for this ‘in-the-box’ delivery system for many of our award-winning products including the upcoming release this Autumn of our cloud management as a service based on Unigma," he added.
