Boston, MA – October 5, 2009 – Intronis, a leading provider of secure online data backup, archiving, and recovery solutions for Managed Service Providers, today announced that it will sponsor four regional events across the country given by CompTIA, the leading trade association for the global IT industry. The CompTIA MSP Business Simulation Experience is aimed at providing technology solution professionals with the knowledge and business skills they need to successfully compete in the growing managed services provider market.
The one-day, hands-on workshops will be structured in a game format where teams make all the decisions about marketing, sales, operations, HR and finance for a managed services provider — and own the results. By going through the exercise, participants will gain valuable business knowledge, as well as learn techniques and strategies to improve their profits. The workshops are designed for executives of small technology companies who have decision-making authority over budgets, including head count authorizations, determining what projects the company bids on, and how much the company spends on promotion.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Intronis as a sponsor of the CompTIA MSP Business Simulation Experience,” said Jill Kerr, Vice President of Industry Development at CompTIA.
“We’re proud to support CompTIA and the Business Simulation Experience workshops,” added Eric Webster, Vice President of Sales and Client Services at Intronis. “We’re committed to the success of managed service providers and these seminars are an excellent forum for MSPs to extend their professional development and sharpen their business skills in order to grow their business and boost their bottom line.”
Registration for the CompTIA MSP Business Simulation Experience is just $35 for CompTIA members. The workshops also are open to non-member technology resellers at a price of $250, which includes a one-year membership in CompTIA. All attendees will receive a complimentary guidebook on finance designed especially for solution providers. For more information, visit http://www.comptia.org/events/events/regionals.aspx.
