Go for a Dream Exit

How do you realize a Dream Exit for your MSP company? Good news is… Your company is in a growth market.

Still, you have to be careful. Large software companies are often not interested in small ones reseller. In the increasingly complex technology landscape, there is a need for large MSPs or resellers who excel in both sales and implementation and support afterwards.

Are you good at that? Then a Dream Exit is close by!

This is how you value a managed services provider (MSP)

1. Volume

Larger MSPs usually settle for lower margins. This means that smaller players can sometimes be pushed out of the market.

2. Specialization

Ensuring volumes grow quickly is one way to remain successful in times of declining margins. A second way is to specialize in a niche and develop your own intellectual property (IP). Having your own product and dominance in a certain market help your company to maintain higher margins.

  1. The war for talent is a major challenge for MSPs. MSP services are almost always labor intensive and for talented employees, switching from one MSP to another is a breeze.
  2. The processes of software and other implementations often take longer and are therefore more expensive than first thought. MSPs that do have control over these processes are loved by customers.
  3. This is related to: what is the level of your service? what are your branding and identity? The answer to those questions determines to a large extent what your sales market is (and therefore also how large it is).
  4. MSPs often have to deal with declining margins (see above).
  5. Does the company know intellectual property (IP) to monetize? Specific knowledge, provided it helps customers, acts as a protective barrier for healthy margins.
  6. Choosing a clear focus and market dominance also help your company to protect margins.
