“The MSP industry continues to see waves of consolidation both at the vendor and practitioner level, and today’s announcement doesn’t come with a lot of surprise. It’s a thriving industry and that’s why PE firms continue to invest. That’s good for the industry and it’s good for us. But you have to keep your eye on the ball and remember who the ultimate beneficiary should be—the MSP.
“The truth is you can’t miss a beat. You need to be able to effectively incubate the new model and address any potential challenges it can bring, while still doing right by your customers, who we call partners. Our sole focus has always been first and foremost on our MSP partners; that’s how we’ve built our business and that isn’t going to change. We congratulate Continuum and ConnectWise and look forward to continued industry growth and development that ultimately benefits the MSP first and foremost—because in the end, if they grow, we grow."
