    Trusting your MSP

    All respondents said their partners' product offerings meet the needs and expectations of their customers. 13.6 percent strongly agreed that their partner offerings are likely exceeding customer expectations. To generate additional business from their current accounts and acquire new business, MSPs must find viable solutions and be regarded as trustworthy experts.

Sonian, a pioneer in cloud-based email archiving, surveyed a wide range of managed service providers (MSPs) to gain insight into their current challenges and the strategic approaches they're using to generate new business and build relationships with partners.

The population consisted of various types of MSPs that manage enterprise and SMB accounts for a variety of customers. Respondents included professionals in executive business development, sales, marketing and product management roles. The survey targeted MSPs in North America, but also had broad promotional reach online, via email and through social media.

Despite the diverse population of respondents, the survey unveiled a common and consistent theme: MSPs want to increase revenue and find partners who will provide the support for success. In the survey, MSPs acknowledged the solutions must meet the ever-evolving needs of their customers, provide healthy margins, and reduce the need for additional resources.

In this slideshow, Greg Arnette, founder and CTO, Sonian, discusses the survey findings in more detail.
