ConnectWise to Show Integrators How to Streamline Processes at ISC West 2018
ConnectWise believes every integrator should have anytime, anywhere access to remotely control devices and help their customers.
SSI spoke with ConnectWise Business Development Director John Fry ahead of ISC West to discuss what the company will be bringing to the show. You can find them at booth 7055.
What is the top product or offering your company is showing off at ISC West this year, and what makes it unique or special?
There are quite a few fantastic products being showcased here at ISCW, however, there are very few offerings like the ConnectWise platform that truly help integrators become more operationally efficient and grow their margins. Our flagship product, ConnectWise Manage, allows integrators to gain full control over their businesses by uniting all their business processes – from project management and operations to time management, billing and more.
What other products or offerings would you like to highlight, and what are some of their unique qualities?
ConnectWise Sell provides a technology driven approach to quote and proposal automation, with seamless pricing and availability integration to the vendors and distributors that are important to the integrator community. Additionally, ConnectWise Sell features our patented Order Porter technology to deliver quotes and proposals on unique e-quote landing pages, complete with a built-in e-signature option.
Every integrator should have anytime, anywhere access to remotely control devices and help their customers, whether they’re around the corner or across the world. Our remote control tool – ConnectWise Control (formerly ScreenConnect) – is arguably the fastest available in the market today, and with a seamless integration to ConnectWise Manage, the efficiencies gained are unmatched.
What else is new or noteworthy about the company for 2018?
In working with our partners day-in and day-out, we have quickly learned that everyone’s needs and preferences are unique. That’s why we invest heavily in an ever-evolving ecosystem that extends from the roots of our core platform. It consists of 200+ top-notch solutions you can purchase through us, plus even more integrations available for free in our Marketplace.
In 2018, we are taking our commitment to an open ecosystem one step further by providing innovative thinkers with the financial support they need to transform their ideas into working integrations that will benefit the entire ConnectWise community. In March, we launched our 2018 Tech Tank Competition – a contest designed to inspire and drive innovation from developers and benefit the ConnectWise ecosystem – taking place at our partner conference in June.
We are accepting software integration proofs of concept until April 30, and the winning concept will receive up to $100,000 to transform the idea into a working integration. The scoring will be a combination of ConnectWise partner votes that are cast at Automation Nation 2018 and scores from a team of ConnectWise judges. We hope to see you there!
What is your company’s overall value proposition to installing security dealers/integrators? Why should they do business with you?
The ConnectWise platform allows integrators to truly streamline processes and provide insights for educated business decision making. Perhaps more importantly, the ConnectWise User Community provides an open network of Integration professionals that embrace idea sharing and thrive on seeing each other become successful. We embody the spirit of partnership through conferences, forums, webinars, and countless other shared opportunities, all in pursuit of being better. We embrace inspiration and are connected by a passion to relentlessly seek solutions that ignite success.
What do you see as some of the top opportunities in the marketplace right now?
The concept of a platform like ConnectWise to run their business up until recently has been quite foreign to the integrator community. However, over the past few years, adoption rates have started to rise dramatically, with many more integrators to come. There is an awesome opportunity to help the integrator community with success and we look forward to meeting you!
