Why Working With A Vendor-Neutral MSP Is Important

When you work with a managed service provider, you should feel confident that they have your best interests at heart. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with every provider.

Many MSPs have partnerships with technology vendors that require them to sell their clients those vendors’ products, like servers, laptops and software. Because the MSP is locked in with these technology partners, they have to sell you those solutions no matter what — even if it’s not the right move for your business.

This comes at a big cost to you as the client. You can end up paying for solutions that are:

  • Too expensive
  • A bad fit for your needs
  • A short-term solution for a long-term problem
  • A bandage for a bullet wound

MSPs locked into partnerships with technology vendors are limited in the strategies they can offer and don’t have room for creative solutions.

Work with a vendor-neutral MSP to get the right solutions

Some MSPs (like Cenetric) are truly vendor-neutral. While we’re proudly a Gold Microsoft Partner, we aren’t obligated to recommend or implement their solutions to our clients. We always work to find the remedy for our clients’ specific IT problems, taking into account their budget, short- and long-term needs, and the severity of their challenges.

When we work with our non-profit customers, for example, budget is always top of mind. Because we’re vendor-neutral, we can get creative and find solutions to their challenges that won’t break the bank. For one client with a tight budget, we were able to eliminate their end-of-life server completely, rather than bringing in an expensive new one.
