MSP Finance 101: The Key Metrics to Monitor and Manage

Most MSP businesses were founded by someone with a passion for technology that they wanted to monetize. Suddenly, these founders had a business on their hands forcing them to learn how to manage finances --a whole new skill set — to manage a thriving MSP business. But with the current state of consolidation in the MSP channel being driven by venture capitalists, private equity firms and large partners, there is an urgent need for MSPs to thoroughly grasp the financial side of the business. Whether your MSP started out from a love of technology or was born out of interest in the business side of the house, managing your business’ financial operations is more important than ever.

Join our panel of MSP finance experts as they discuss:

  1. Key metrics to define and measure
  2. How to course correct
  3. A financially healthy MSP
  4. Keys to look at when acquiring MSPs
  5. Getting in shape to be acquired
