- Channel services group sees higher-than-expected interest in its SynMSP membership, which provides specific business development and support for managed services partners
- Meeting in Warrington will give sponsors and members the opportunity to closely-interact and build relationships
Warrington 19 October 2018 – SYNAXON UK is bringing more than 40 MSPs together at a special gathering of its SynMSP members, at which it will outline its plans to help them grow and develop their managed services practices.
Having only launched the new membership category in January, the channel services group now has 33 signed-up SynMSP members and with more discussions taking place, expects to see this number more than double by the end of the year. This will be the second official gathering of the SynMSP members, the first having taken place at the SYNAXON UK offices in July.
Derek Jones, Managing Director of SYNAXON UK, said: “We have really struck a chord with MSPs. Both existing members and companies who were previously not a part of the SYNAXON community have been knocking on our door. Interest has been way beyond what we expected, which is really encouraging.”
The one-day briefing and networking event will take place at The Village Hotel in Warrington. The group plans to announce several new initiatives with key vendors that will bring new opportunities to SynMSP partners. AMD will be the main sponsor with ConnectWise and Datto also supporting the event.
SYNAXON will also be looking for feedback and direction from members. “We will be listening as much as talking”, said Jones. “We are all about our members and we want them to shape the future strategy and direction of our MSP programme.”
One of the key features of the meeting will be The Great Table Hop. This will see each of the sponsors join separate tables of between eight and 12 SynMSP members for a period of around 20 minutes, providing an opportunity to interact, exchange views and build relationships. Each table will be chaired by a member of the SynMSP Advisory Board.
With interest in SynMSP membership continuing to grow, a further meeting of members will be held alongside the group’s summer conference in June, Jones added. “The number of members and non-members asking about SynMSP has grown week-on-week. Having dipped their toe in the water with managed services, a lot of resellers are looking for help and support to take themselves to the next stage. They need support and guidance on sales and marketing and on automation of services, remote management and billing, all of which we can help with.”
SYNAXON has a close partnership with the leading global provider of professional services automation and DR/BC solutions, Datto, and can assist members in getting onto the vendor’s channel programme and enabling them through training, hands-on account management and support.
The SynMSP membership is designed both for established MSPs who want to grow and members looking to develop their managed services businesses. It provides specific resources and support to help resellers grow their managed services sales and drive higher levels of customer satisfaction.
