Level Platforms plans to use the ConnectWise IT Nation conference (formerly ConnectWise Partner Summit) as a magnet to rally more than 100 managed services providers. Here's some background on Level Platforms' plan, which includes the imminent launch of Managed Workplace 2011.
According to Level Platforms CEO Peter Sandiford, Level Platforms will use the ConnectWise conference to bring together more than 100 partners on November 4. During the gathering, Level Platforms will promote Managed Workplace 2011 features such as:
- Management of roaming devices and automation
- Enhanced asset discovery
Also at the event, Level Platforms will reinforce its integration with ConnectWise's PSA platform, introducing a new ConnectWise Edition, "simplifying the entire process so that ConnectWise partners can benefit from all the work CW and we have done in this area out-of-the-box," Sandiford says.
Bigger PictureMore than 1,000 MSPs and managed services industry leaders are expected to attend ConnectWise IT Nation. In recent months, ConnectWise has tried to maintain a careful balancing act -- promoting ConnectWise Capital investments like Labtech Software and CharTec while maintaining relationships with third-party RMM providers like Level Platforms, N-able and Zenith Infotech. Both CharTec and LabTech will also host gatherings on November 4 in coordination with IT Nation.
