Industry’s Leading Cloud IT Management Portal for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Reports Explosive Growth and Readies for More with New ConnectWise Alliance

itopia, a leading Google Cloud Technology Partner, has successfully integrated ConnectWise’s industry leading business management platform for Information Technology Service Providers, ConnectWise Manage™, into its cloud IT management portal for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The new alliance and integration makes it easy for MSPs to provide superior support to clients by synchronizing accounts, ticketing and billing transactions between ConnectWise Manage and itopia.

“ConnectWise Manage is the business management platform of choice among our growing base of MSPs and approximately 70 percent of the world’s top MSPs on the MSPmentor 501 Global Edition List, making this integration strategic, timely and game-changing,” said Ted Hulsy, Chief Revenue Officer, itopia. “Business automation software is essential to the success of an MSP in a cloud-first, mobile-first world. Our own research shows MSPs using ConnectWise Manage or a competitive platform produce nearly 50 percent more in monthly recurring revenue than those who don’t.”

In Q3 of 2017, itopia experienced 60 percent quarter-over-quarter growth, achieving record-setting engagement and revenues as awareness of its platform grows and demand for cloud computing workloads soars. Goldman Sachs' 2017 Tech & Internet Conference noted only a high, single-digit percentage of workloads have migrated to the cloud and expects the number to grow to 30 percent in the next five years and 60 percent within the next 10 years – a statistic itopia sees scaling as more MSPs realize the business-building benefits of Google Cloud Platform and the simplicity and sophistication gained by using itopia in conjunction with their existing business software automation platform. 

“itopia is a welcomed addition to our ConnectWise integration library and an important alliance for those MSPs looking to expand their go-to-market to include Google Cloud Platform,” said Gavin Gamber, Vice president, Channel Sales and Alliances, ConnectWise. “We look forward to having itopia join us at IT Nation and look forward to a successful relationship that will drive greater business value for our mutual MSP partners.”

Today’s announcement comes in anticipation of the ConnectWise IT Nation conference taking place Nov. 8 to 10 in Orlando, Florida.  IT Nation is attended by more than 3,000 technology vendors, MSPs, distributors, solution providers and service providers from across the IT channel. Follow itopia via Twitter during the event using the hashtag #ITN17.

MSPs interested in evaluating itopia or making the switch to Google Cloud are encouraged to use the industry leader’s free Cost Calculator for Google Cloud. Launched earlier this year, itopia’s online calculator allows MSPs to quickly and accurately estimate the all-in monthly infrastructure cost to deliver Windows workspaces using Google Cloud Platform. In just minutes, MSPs are presented with the projected infrastructure costs of delivering cloud workspaces to customers and prospects that can then be compared against quotes from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure.

“MSPs are in a position to lead businesses in their quest for digital transformation and will be wildly more successful if they leverage our cloud IT management portal for Google Cloud Platform in conjunction with ConnectWise’s business automation software,” said Jon Lieberman, Chief Executive Officer, itopia. “Our goal is to make the move to Google Cloud Platform as simple as possible for MSPs and help them, as well as their clients, realize the business-building benefits of cloud computing workloads.”
