Welcome to the Altaro MSP Dojo!
In the IT world, the acronym MSP stands for Managed Services Provider. MSPs are companies that provide IT services for an organization or business for a monthly fee. Unlike break-fix focused providers, MSPs take very proactive steps and use multi-tenancy management utilities to manage as many customers as possible, with as few resources as possible.
Whether you’re just starting out as a new MSP, or you’re a seasoned veteran looking to make your MSP better, we have a wealth of resources for you. At the Altaro MSP Dojo, we have a number of industry leaders and MSP owners/employees that share a wealth of knowledge with you through tips, tricks, and business strategies to help you run your MSP as efficiently as possible.
The MSP Dojo is provided by Altaro Software, developers of Altaro VM Backup for MSPs
