Should MSPs Outsource Their Help Desks?

Joe Panettieri sheds some light on why some MSPs are outsourcing their own help desks.

“As the managed services market grew up, a healthy number of MSPs decided to outsource their help desks to third-party partners. But now, ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini is calling on MSPs – even small MSPs – to build their own help desks. By having a help desk in-house, small MSPs can build person-to-person relationships with end-customers, while more closely monitoring trends and needs within their SMB customer bases, Bellini asserts. By leveraging third-party help desks and third-party NOCs, MSPs can focus on more strategic, higher-margin services, proponents say. NetEnrich GM and Senior VP Justin Crotty says MSPs that hold onto their NOCs are dung beetles – doing dirty work that they don’t really need to be doing.”
