In this NetSeminar, IT service providers who have grown a managed services practice will share their secrets for how to successfully transition from low-margin, unpredictable income to high-margin, recurring revenue.

As many IT service providers, turn to a managed services model as a way to expand their business and offset shrinking margins in hardware and software markets, a lot of uncertainty remains around what exactly defines a managed service provider and what it takes to succeed in the managed services market.

But as IT service providers tap into this market and build their customer base, they’re faced with a catch 22: as their business grows, their costs also grow. They’re caught in a quagmire of overhead, billing and personnel hires required to run the business. How can IT service providers grow and still maintain high profit levels? (And should they grow at all?).
