During MSPmentor Live: Podcast Edition, I speak with David Schafran, president of Transformation Strategies Inc., a consulting firm that helps VARs transition to managed services. Also joining us is Michael Coopersmith, owner Integrated Technology Systems of New York City. We cover how Schafran is helping Coopersmith transition his business for managed services. This is Part I of a planned two-part podcast series. We’ll check back in with Schafran and Coopersmith in a few weeks to measure Integrated Technology Systems’ progress.
