How MSP Automation Enables Sales and Recurring Revenue Growth
It’s time to free your team from manual documentation and assessment processes with advanced MSP software so they can concentrate on more important tasks.
“It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?”
– Henry David Thoreau
So, what is it you’re busy about these days? If your MSP business has been slow to grow, and you’re constantly struggling just to keep up, it could be due to inefficiencies surrounding your documentation, assessment and detection processes. After all, how much can you focus on generating or following through on leads when you’re spending a good portion of your time on documentation across a number of platforms? And how many customers can your IT staff service when they’re wading through scattered alerts and issuing tickets manually?
To become more efficient, you must find a way to do more with what you already have. In the case of MSPs, that means freeing up your sales staff to make sales and your onboarding staff to serve more customers. And that can be accomplished by setting up a solid foundation from the start—a system that accurately and securely automates everything that’s been slowing them down.

Empower Your Salespeople to Sell
At Liongard, we’re committed to helping every member of your staff optimize their time and be as efficient as possible in their specific roles. And given that “finding new clients” was recently ranked as the most challenging aspect of the MSP business, it’s essential for your sales team to be able to focus on sales, without spending too much time on unrelated duties.
Once you’ve got a new customer, we suggest your salespeople do these three things to ensure a seamless handoff to the onboarding team:
- Enter all sales assessment results in your documentation. All of the automated configuration and system details will already be in Roar, which means you only need to enter the user-generated content.
- Alert the onboarding team. Give the onboarding team an overview of who’s who at the new client company so they know who to contact for what they need.
- Embrace automation. Strive for a paperless handoff using tools your team already uses, so the onboarding team has easy access to all information.
After that, your sales staff can get back to doing what they do best—talking to prospects and continuing to grow the company.
