An important part of managed IT services is network assessments, which give managed services providers (MSPs) the ability to perform scans of their clients’ entire IT environments. Today, many MSPs use one-time network assessment tools, such as Network Detective, as a way to convert prospects into new clients and uncover new projects for existing clients. However, an even bigger opportunity exists with IT assessments in developing a long-term program of regular, ongoing assessments.
A single assessment is only the first step to a comprehensive and effective program, one that will help you mitigate ongoing risks for your end-user companies, establish more consistent streams of revenue, and strengthen client relationships. Here are the benefits of performing ongoing network assessments and why MSPs should work to incorporate them into their overall strategy.
