Increased Recurring and Project Revenues

Creating a strategic relationship with your clients allows you to deliver more value both an ongoing and project base. Decisions are made easier as the problems you solve are not technical but business ones.

Loyal Customers

If you are a trusted business advisor you are part of their competitive advantage. They are not checking your price, they are not looking for other partners and want your business to grow.

Increased Engagement

Helping them to become a better company, servicing their clients better, streamline their communication, helping them in operational efficiency leads to increased engagement and retention.

Here is the problem

You were the hero when your clients had IT Infrastructure problems. You have solved their problems and they do not see the value that clearly anymore. 

It is really frustrating when the executives have not engaged with you anymore, you have to prove your value and when they are not open to invest in their infrastructure anymore.

This is not your fault. They view the technology and your services as a technical and tactical part of their business. 

You deserved to be a strategic business partner of your clients.

Let's fix this with structured, simplified and scaleable vCIO project engagements...

Expert Guide

Adam has witnessed too many bad QBRs, technology conversations with executives, boring presentations and lengthy quotations. He felt that this is a major obstacle for small businesses to adopt great technologies.

He started his own vCIO practice and has grown to a very lucrative business in a short amount of time focusing only offering vCIO offerings to small businesses. He had been training and crafting materials for MSPs around the world to unlock the potential for MSPs to become business partners.

Framework

Adam has developed the AAW Framework, which is a modular business engagement system using Assessments, Audits and Workshops to engage C level executives.

This approach makes the Business vCIO process scaleable as the expectations are set, the outcomes are predictable and the deliverables are defined. This is a game changer after many ad-hoc, talent driven vCIO activities.

Implementation

Adam has implemented the AAW Framework in many organizations. The challenge was always to balance the short term (do it tomorrow) and the long term (make it as a scalable offering). He realized that tying the different Assessments, Audits and Workshops to different cycles gave the clients clarity and the MSP a roadmap to actually implement all engagement activities.

This implementation has been proven to train and onboarding new vCIOs, as well.

Adam's coaching approach is agile and result driven. It always starts with an assessment, then setting achievable goals and defining incremental values. This approach helps the MSP to make the vCIO setup and running quickly and start earning incomes from the clients who are helping to finance the development process.

Results are creating positive feedback loops, clients are happy vCIOs are motivated and the company owner have full control on the process.

Many solution providers offer to tweak your business model or improve your efficiency - but very few can offer to transform your offering. Managed Services Platform aims to guide those of us aiming for more.

Rich Anderson

CEO / Imagine IT

Managed Services Platform is pretty cool. We've tried a lot of MSP coaching, training and marketing systems. We truly feel that the Managed Services Platform is the most in-depth, comprehensive, advanced and fastest evolving

Nick Stevens

Founding Partner / Heroic Technologies

Managed Services Platform helps us to sell more SaaS but also helps us to get more revenue because we do more for the same client. The report tool forces us to get out of our comfort zone (the bits and bytes), and makes us focus on why a client needs IT.
