Kaseya MSP Client Data Balance Wins Business Solutions Magazine “Channel Innovator Award” for Managed Services
Pro Balance Solution Utilizes Kaseya to Remotely Manage Gold’s Gym Franchises’ IT Needs
ST. HELIER, JERSEY, APRIL 14, 2008 – Kaseya, a global provider of information technology (IT) automation software for IT solution providers and corporate IT organizations, today announced that client Data Balance has won (PDF) the 2008 Business Solutions “Channel Innovator Award” for Managed Services. The annual Channel Innovator Awards recognize the publication’s choices for the year’s most revolutionary channel solutions.
Each year, Business Solutions’ editors review countless submissions for technology solutions in eight different areas of technology, including managed services. One winning VAR, integrator, or ISV is selected in each category for their its demonstrated ability to go beyond the norm to successfully tackle challenging projects.
“We look forward to reviewing the award entries and learning about the original ways that IT providers are pushing boundaries,” said Chris Loringer, executive editor for Business Solutions. “Data Balance’s solution was a prime example of this kind of development. The way that their solution has changed their business, as well as how they interact with their clients, really captured our attention.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized,” said Data Balance’s president, Jon Lawrence. “We had a lot of great competition in the managed service provider category and we are pleased to have been selected.”
Business Solutions singled out Data Balance as a Channel Innovator based on the company’s Pro Balance managed service offering, which uses Kaseya’s IT automation framework including computer inventory/audit, remote desktop management/remote support, patch management, software deployment/update, and the backup and disaster recovery add-on module. The Pro Balance solution has allowed Data Balance to successfully monitor, update and proactively manage the IT systems of its clients, such as the Gold’s Gym franchises in Tampa, Florida.
“Data Balance has developed a strong solution that truly capitalizes on the benefits of the Kaseya framework,” said Dan Shapero, senior vice president of marketing at Kaseya. “Their Pro Balance offering enables them to handle IT needs remotely and prevent issues before they occur, without disruption to their clients’ systems. The success Data Balance has experienced through the use of this technology illustrates that they are a worthy recipient of this award.”
Editors at Business Solutions were impressed with how the Pro Balance solution effectively stopped the loss of nearly $10,000 a month across the client’s Tampa area Gold’s Gym franchises due to system outages and application downtime. Data Balance’s ability to remotely monitor workstations and servers, as well as provide continuous and proactive system maintenance, has virtually eliminated downtime in Gold’s IT environment and has improved the productivity of the franchises’ employees, who in turn have been able to provide better client service to members.
Business Solutions will spotlight Data Balance and this year’s other Channel Innovator Award winners in the publication’s May 2008 issue. Data Balance will be featured in a piece highlighting the company’s transformation to a successful MSP business by leveraging Kaseya’s IT automation software to create a remote and automatic systems management solution.
