The Distributor Enhances its Roster of MSP-Oriented Service Partners, Adding a Leading Provider of System Documentation Solutions that Help MSPs Scale Their Practices
Houston, TX – February 6, 2020– D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announced today it is enhancing its portfolio of hosted and cloud-based solutions through an agreement with Liongard, a provider of an automation platform for MSPs that delivers deep visibility into end-customer's cloud, network, and on-premise environments. This adds to a growing roster of solutions for managed service providers that D&H offers through its cloud solutions program, in categories including storage, data migration, web-based services, security, hosted contact center solutions, remote management, business automation, and more.
Managed Service Providers are managing an increasingly complex modern IT stack – from cloud services like Office 365 and G Suite to network devices, apps, services, and databases. MSPs use the Liongard Roar automation platform to have deep visibility into all the systems and configurations managed in one unified dashboard. This allows them to troubleshoot issues faster, track changes over time, receive alerts when something is misconfigured, and generate reports across all their environments and systems.
“D&H has combined best-of-breed Cloud offerings and an impressive team to help MSPs and solution providers grow. Liongard is excited to partner with D&H to help those MSPs expand sustainable and profitable businesses with automation,” said Casey Higgins, Liongard’s director of worldwide channel and alliances. “As MSPs attempt to increase their monthly recurring revenue, it’s nearly impossible to rely on manual processes to keep track of the wide range of documentation involved with any clientele. Our cloud-based automation tools will help MSPs delight end-clients and empower MSPs to scale their businesses.”
“D&H is excited to add Liongard to its expanding ecosystem of cloud services, creating a more versatile umbrella of support for our mutual MSP partners,” said Jason Bystrak, D&H’s vice president, Cloud Business Unit. “As we work with dynamic partners like Liongard to meet the needs of SMB solution providers in this new digital economy, we help expedite adoption of the new ‘XaaS’ paradigm, empowering MSPs to more easily manage a growing roster of clients.”
The D&H Cloud Marketplace continues to add significant cloud partners to its offering, allowing the distributor to deliver a wide range of “Cloud Clusters,” or bundled solutions that D&H partners can provide through a hosted offering. The long-term goal is to help more solution providers transition to a managed services model, satisfying the trend toward digital offerings and the “as-a-Service” economy.
