IT Business Expert, Richard Tubb to Deliver Keynote Address for Continuum’s UK Partner Day – February 17, 2016 – London

BOSTON and LONDON – Nov. 25, 2015Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, is hosting its first UK Partner Day on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at the Churchill War Rooms in London, England. Keynote address is being delivered by Richard Tubb, IT business expert who helps IT companies grow their businesses. The “UK State of the Channel” is also being presented by CompTIA. Continuum recently announced doubling the size of its European Headquarters office located in the Thames Valley region of England, which opened in October 2014.

“We are delighted to be bringing our UK partners together for a day of training and networking in order to help them increase their businesses in revenue and profitability as well as improve operational efficiencies,” said Paul Balkwell, European Sales Director at Continuum.

Richard Tubb is probably the most well-known face within the British IT Managed Service Provider (MSP) community. For many years, he has helped UK MSPs to grow their businesses in a scalable and sustainable way. Richard takes MSPs through the many challenges of scaling up, including taking on employees, marketing and sales strategies and building great relationships with suppliers, partners and the wider business community. At the Continuum UK Partner Day, Richard will be presenting on how to build a remarkable MSP. For more information, visit: http://www.tubblog.co.uk/.

”The UK managed services market has matured with the majority of MSP's using tools that can help them to deliver great IT service,” commented Richard Tubb. “MSP's need to look for new ways to gain a competitive advantage and to stand out from the crowd. I am looking forward to sharing how an MSP can be remarkable with attendees of Continuum’s UK Partner Day."

The IT channel continues to undergo a transition along with the rest of the industry, triggered by changes in the ways that customers buy IT goods and services, new types of competition and themes such as cloud computing and mobility. The effect has been a slow, but steady shift from transactional-based product sales to more emphasis on recurring revenue and services as the main business model. The business transformation process also means different things for different channel firms. CompTIA is discussing the findings in the report, CompTIA’s State of the UK Channel.

MSP partners throughout Europe utilize Continuum’s intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform backed by its industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC) and Help Desk, resolving thousands of alerts, 24x7x365. Continuum offers a Tech Advantage Program for remote IT project management and is introducing Continuity247™, its fully managed backup and disaster recovery (BDR) platform, available to the region in early 2016.
