Do you know how to measure the MSP metrics that matter?
There’s an old phrase that I’m very fond of “What can be measured can be managed”.
Measuring the progress of your IT Solution Provider or Managed Service Provider (MSP) business is a big step towards managing the growth of your business. Once you start measuring yourself against metrics within your business, you begin to make fact based decisions rather than decisions based on “gut feeling”.
Measuring things like your engineer utilisation rates, your client satisfaction, your ticket closure times, and importantly – your profitability – allows you to focus your attention within your business where it is needed most and make improvements that help your business grow.
Benchmarking your MSP business against your peers
Every year the Service Intelligence team at Autotask undertake their annual IT Service Provider Benchmarking study – polling hundreds of IT service providers around the world to hear what they had to say about various aspects of their business.
This year, Autotask have created a free eBook sharing the results of the survey – and having downloaded my own copy, it makes interesting reading.
