(Cedar Rapids, IA) - GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation and Collabrance LLC announced today they will host their 5th Managed Information Technology (IT) Navigator business planning session on July 16-17, 2013 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Navigator session provides hands-on managed IT business planning for office equipment and telecommunication dealerships, independent VARs, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and resellers.
The one-and-a-half day session guides executive teams through the step-by-step development of a managed IT services business model and operational structure. Businesses starting a managed IT offering, or scaling and enhancing a current one, will gain insight in sales force compensation, pricing strategies, and specific operational considerations, such as team structure and project implementation management. This business planning session will be facilitated by Milton Bartley, President and CEO of ImageQuest from of Nashville, TN, a solution provider who continues to experience great success in this space.
“Our attendees have consistently endorsed the session content, saying that it has helped them avoid mistakes and capitalize on key insights in growing their managed IT businesses,” said Jim Burns, Vice President and General Manager of Collabrance.
“It was so helpful to our business to have GreatAmerica bring the Navigator session to us,” said previous attendee, June Crawford, President of Copygraphix in Tucson, AZ. “The fact that Milton is still in managed IT today brings a lot of credibility, and what he shared will no doubt help us shorten our timeline to success.”
