In Part 1 of our Surviving Brexit series we outlined the need for greater financial certainty during times of wide spread uncertainty. We explored how reselling hosted desktop and VoIP solutions can offer that, and the benefits of introducing a recurring revenue model.
But achieving a consistent and predictable income is just one way to improve stability in your business. Another equally effective approach is to place a greater focus on mitigating risk.
Seeing the Brexit deadline on the horizon the UK SME market is likely to be more risk aware than at any point since the last financial crisis, which still gently rings in many of their ears today.
With so much uncertainty, and nothing guaranteed, the logical step for IT service providers and their clients’ is that of introducing precautionary measures to reduce financial and commercial exposure.
Reselling white labelled hosted desktop and cloud VoIP services presents an opportunity to achieve both these objectives in tandem, whilst opening the door to a market of potential new business.
How you benefit: Joining the GoCloud Partner Programme and becoming a cloud reseller requires no upfront investment, no long-term commitment and there is no minimum sales requirement.
It’s a risk-free way to expand your service offering and provide existing clients with a product they might otherwise look elsewhere for.
How your clients benefit: Similarly, your clients can benefit from the same low-cost of entry that a cloud solution presents. This is accompanied by fixed, manageable monthly payments.
Your SME clients will only pay for the services they require, so the solution can quickly and easily scale up and down to meet their needs.
Explore more ways your end user clients can reduce risk and benefit from a cloud desktop solution.
