Customer Panel to be Featured at Special Navigator For Managed IT Services Training

Cedar Rapids, IA – GreatAmerica Financial Services and Collabrance LLC say their 9th Navigator for Managed IT Services business planning session will include a panel of actual Managed IT customers as part of the training. The session is for office equipment and telecommunication dealers, independent VARs, and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) interested in scaling a profitable Managed IT Services offering.  The one-day session will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on February 24, 2015.

The customer panel will share why they have chosen to outsource technology as well as their experiences with their MSP. Questions are encouraged. Industry veteran Milton Bartley, President and CEO of ImageQuest Managed Services, will share strategies to building a multi-million-dollar and award-winning Managed IT business, as well as his lessons learned through real-world case studies. In December 2014, Bartley was recognized for the second time as one of the world’s leading MSP executives, entrepreneurs and experts on the MSPmentor Top 250 List.

The Nashville location will help accommodate travel schedules and offer more affordable travel options for attendees. The content shared at Navigator reflects changes in the business model and best practices as the Managed IT industry continues to evolve.
