IT and Business Insights for SMB Solution Providers

ChannelPro Weekly Podcast: Episode #032 - SupportBots and Gypsies

Join the ChannelPro Weekly crew for a fresh batch of news and views from the world of SMB technology. In this episode, Matt, Cecilia, and Rich discuss two new next-generation security solutions that smaller businesses can actually afford, a cool new gaming laptop from Razer, and the first chatbot service specifically designed to help MSPs and other IT service providers automate their help desk. 

That's followed by a discussion of obstacles and opportunities in IT-telco channel convergence, an interview with Jason King of ADTRAN about that company's managed networking service, a nostalgic look at a classic Ericcson cell phone from Matt's museum, and an admiring introduction to Logitech's pricey but premium new 4K webcam. You'll even learn about Matt's favorite lunch and the buttons on Rich's T-shirt. A complete show if there ever was one!

Don't forget about our continuing giveaway contest too. Just use the hashtag #channelproweekly in the next week on Twitter or Facebook for a shot at winning a scorchin' hot Linksys AC2600 gigabit router. We'll reveal the lucky winner during next week's show.
