BOSTON – April 25, 2016 – Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, continues its support of members of HTG Peer Groups at the HTG Q2 Meeting, taking place on Monday, May 2 – Friday, May 6, 2016 in Dallas, Texas. HTG Peer Groups is an international community of experienced Managed Service Providers focused on business and personal growth, execution and accountability, and includes more than 400 member companies. Continuum is a Platinum Premier Sponsor of all the HTG 2016 Meetings.
WHAT: Continuum at HTG Q2 Meeting
WHEN: Monday, May 2 – Friday, May 6, 2016
WHERE: Omni Mandalay, 221 East Las Colinas Boulevard, Dallas, Texas
Continuum is leading the discussion at Seat at the Table/Lunch & Learn sessions during the HTG Q2 Meeting. HTG members across the country utilize Continuum’s Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform that offers proactive problem resolution backed by the company’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC) and Help Desk, resolving thousands of alerts, 24x7x365. These services minimize HTG members’ time dealing with day-to-day IT, allowing them to focus on business and strategic initiatives in order to grow their business.
The two biggest challenges facing HTG members today are finding and recruiting talent and finding customers. When HTG members utilize the company’s “smart sourcing” model – not just outsourcing – their time dealing with day-to-day IT is minimized. Smart sourcing day-to-day IT functions to Continuum provides a breadth of IT skills and knowledge that are unmatched compared to building an in-house team and has produced some of the most successful IT businesses in the industry. The world’s top 501 MSPs grew about 26 percent last year. Continuum’s top partners – leveraging all of Continuum services, including RMM, BDR, NOC and Help Desk – grew 46 percent.
“Continuum and HTG Peer Groups work together to ensure that the members of HTG are increasing scalability and profitability of their MSP businesses,” said Jeanne Hopkins, Senior Vice President & CMO at Continuum. “We continue our commitment to HTG, and as a result, continue to welcome HTG members as new partners.”
Jeanne Hopkins is presenting on inbound marketing on Thursday, May 5. She is providing inbound marketing examples backed with data that proves that creating useful content for prospects is an easier and far better way to generate valuable leads than PPC and other paid media.
Earlier this year, Continuum kicked off the first meetings of its exclusive peer groups – one for owners and two for network operations center (NOC) managers of its MSP partners, in conjunction with HTG. Run and facilitated by HTG, the purpose of the new peer groups is to encourage and enable partner growth, strengthen relationships and gain valuable insights into how Continuum’s partners operate.
HTG and Continuum are teaming up to host a silent auction on November 2, 2016 at the HTG Q4 Meeting in Orlando to raise funds for Hire Heroes USA on behalf of Continuum Veterans Foundation, helping returning troops find jobs in the IT industry by providing financial support to local and national charities focused on the mission. Auction items are donated by HTG vendors. The auction at the HTG Q4 Meeting in 2015 raised over $14,000.
At the Q2 meeting, Continuum employees will also be joining HTG at their Go Giver Day volunteer event, taking place at Mission Arlington as an ongoing effort to give back to the local community.
