Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 6, 2005
SEATTLE, WA (PRWEB) September 6, 2005 Â Singlestep Technologies, a leading provider of IT information management solutions, announced that they have rolled out a new program for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) that helps ensure their success as they offer new hosted monitoring and management services. By including a full range of training, support and resources, Singlestep is embracing the feedback and advice from their customers, and have developed a program to encompass both the technical difficulties and business challenges MSPs face in providing a managed service.
"Many technology providers are struggling to transform their operations to offer managed services that meet their customer's changing IT management needs," said Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, a strategic consulting firm. "Turn-key technology and business support solutions like Singlestep's Unity program can accelerate the transition process and enable technology providers to offer high quality, cost-effective managed services."
The program, which comes on the heels of the company releasing its flexible, easy to use Unity 2.5 offering, includes everything from technical, sales and marketing support, to go-to-market training to strategic partner alliances with large framework vendors. Singlestep believes that the best business partnerships should offer flexible technological solutions along with practical tools for taking those solutions to market, and therefore supporting the way MSP partners want to run and grow their business. SinglestepÂs Unity 2.5 offering and SinglestepÂs MSP program were designed specifically to address these needs.
ÂWe are building a matrix of support, training and partnerships in order to give our customers access to more than just our core technology and product. ItÂs really about bundling business and partner opportunities together with our Unity offering,Â said Scot French, VP of Marketing at Singlestep ÂCustomers today are asking to work with vendors that are committed to embracing their business challenges, not just selling them products.Â

Â Easy and affordable method for adding clients and changing business needs and environments

ÂUnity offers a unique tool that we needed in order to monitor and manage our customerÂs network devices flexibly, and in an easily organized, easy to use fashion. No other tool we evaluated was able to use the investment our customers had already made in their monitoring tools, and bring them into a central location like Unity. This capability is critical for us to grow our managed service business in a cost effective way,Â Said Cynthia Norris, Director of Monitoring Services for Computer Assets.
