The ASCII Group Ignites New Peer Group Offering

Bethesda, Maryland – March 23, 2022 – The ASCII Group, a large membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, MSSPs and Solution Providers, is pleased to announce ASCII Spark, a new peer group offering for MSPs to collaborate with fellow members.

ASCII Spark is designed for members to come together to discuss business issues and corrective strategies in a non-competitive environment. Participants will be in a peer group made up of 10 fellow members that are geographically separated, and each group is led by a hand-selected ASCII member team leader.  

“Our objective in constructing ASCII Spark was to provide an additional means for members to work together at a deeper level while enhancing their operational overview,” said Jerry Koutavas, President, The ASCII Group. “Members have the opportunity to join forces to share best business practices with the intention of building a better IT practice.”

Included in ASCII membership, ASCII Spark is designed to enhance the community model of knowledge sharing and information exchange. With regularly scheduled, coach-led sessions, these meetings are meant to connect owners and like-minded peers to address topics that MSPs are facing in 2022 such as pricing structures, employee compensation and more.

Since 1984, The ASCII Group has provided programs, services, and resources for MSPs to better run their IT businesses. By providing ASCII Spark at no additional cost, the goal is to enrich the professional and personal development of ASCII members.

“We look forward to having deeper dive conversations with members around the latest business practices in our industry,” said Trevor DiGirolamo, Director of Strategic Projects at The ASCII Group. “By working together in a collaborative environment, ASCII members will have a leg up over their competition because of these discussions!”
