Tight budgets. Limited staff. At first, non-profits do not sound much like a vertical that makes sense for MSP growth. How does one build a profitable line of business from a group of clients that, by definition, do not turn a profit themselves?
However, consider those first impressions one more time. Tight budgets mean there’s no room for anything to go wrong with their IT networks, because there may literally not be enough funds to repair and restore crucial infrastructure if it goes down. Limited staff means hiring a team of dedicated, qualified IT technicians is out of the question. In reality, there may not be a vertical better-suited to the managed services model than the non-profit sector, as there is a clear and genuine need for MSP services.
