Liongard CEO Joe Alapat has some things to say about how MSPs should scale a business. The former MSP owner sat down with me to talk through what partners should focus on and where they go wrong — and his advice is just as applicable in a COVID world as it is in whatever will pass for normal when we come out the other side of this mess.

His wisdom on how to grow a services practice seems, in today’s climate, great advice on how to survive. And not just that, but how to succeed amid the pandemic and economic fallout we’re experiencing. He speaks about the harm that a lack of visibility can cause and the pain of the onboarding process. Also, how automation can save MSPs’ bacon.

“2020 is a year of visibility,” says Alapat. That’s true now more than ever. Watch the video above to get insight on how to scale a business in these uncertain times.
