Pax8 Launches New Education Program Called MSP Foundations

DENVER, CO (March 2, 2021) – Pax8, the best place for IT professionals to buy cloud products, today announced MSP Foundations, its first live eight-week instructor-led course delivering managed service providers (MSPs) key fundamentals for developing a dynamic and profitable business. Offered through Pax8’s partner education program Pax8 Academy, the eight-week class empowers partners to build strategic business initiatives, drive toward profitability, and excel in today’s modern channel.

“Pax8 has a unique opportunity to share best practices and offer education to enable successful business growth through MSP Foundations,” said Nick Heddy, Chief Revenue Officer at Pax8. “We built this program so we can offer MSPs advanced knowledge, insights, and tools to be successful with cloud technology and build a robust recurring revenue business. Through the MSP Foundations course, partners will gain a deep understanding of industry-leading business methods for impacting growth, driving revenue, and creating a financially sound and long-lasting practice.”

Led by a 20-year MSP veteran, courses in finance, sales, marketing, and operations will empower attendees to make calculated business decisions, determine profitability, and establish a repeatable sales process. With MSP Foundations, partners will have the opportunity to network and collaborate with peers from different regions and verticals and participate in interactive workshops, applying critical learnings specifically to their businesses.
