The client onboarding process is a crucial opportunity to establish trust and confidence with new clients. A successful onboarding sets the foundation for a positive and long-lasting relationship. However, many MSPs face challenges due to unexpected mishaps and miscommunications during this pivotal moment. To excel in your business, it is essential to implement a system that anticipates and prevents major pitfalls. One of the most effective strategies for MSPs is to meticulously review, verify, and audit their work. Introducing the RMM Onboarding Audit Dashboard, our featured Dashboard of the month. This dashboard, developed in partnership with a ConnectWise RMM subject matter expert and partner success manager, focuses solely on RMM data. It serves as a valuable tool for onboarding engineers and Team Leads, supporting them throughout the onboarding phase. The purpose of this dashboard is to proactively assess the work, allowing your team to validate their progress even before the onboarding process is complete.

By sharing this information with your clients, you can build trust and transparency and demonstrate the value of your services.

Similar to any other Solution Provider business model, how MSPs calculate and present their prices indicate how well they understand both their profit model and their ability to convey value in the selling process. Higher operational maturity MSPs realize that their services merit the customer buying only the fullest package. They also have a better understanding of their true costs, which results in a considerably higher fee than the same services offered by the lower operational maturity MSPs. While it may seem easier to out-price your peers, because of the service quality and better ability to convey value, the more expensive MSPs actually close significantly more agreements though still selling to the same customer profile. In last month's CEO Growth & Profit webinar, Foundational Excellence: Pricing and Packaging Like the Top Performers, Rob Bufano, the Service Leadership Solutions Director, reviewed Managed Services pricing methodologies. He shared how the top quartile of MSPs are creating very detailed, granular pricing models behind the scenes, while simultaneously presenting their prices in easy-to-read simple formats for their clients.
