What really matters is that you find a road map to sustain your growth and success in the future. You can start by building your own roadmap by taking the VAR business health test at www.varofficesuite.com.
On top of this, we will explore the best ways for VARS to exploit the latest channel trends in Cloud, Managed Services, BYOD/Mobility, Business Intelligence an Big Data. We will also have VARs tell their success and failure stories. If its relevant to VARs running their business, you will find it here.
Why are we doing this now?
Many VARs are looking for help now. The old ways of VARs doing business as usual has simply gone out of the window! Managed Services, Cloud and BYOD have all changed the way the channel does business, forever. Add to this, the economic issues; the commoditization of services; the constant downward pressure on margins; the on-going amalgamation of products through company mergers and acquisitions… These are some of big game-changing events that have dramatically and permanently altered the way the channel does business.
As with every new era in the channel, the challenges are big, but so are the opportunities for those who adapt to the market needs. We invite you to read the blog and watch the videos. Share it with your staff. We believe this information will help you to move the needle up on your business.
Here you will find a friendly place where you can learn, find tools and get help to run your entire business with no pressure or obligation.
