Partner Presentation - Creating Business Focus – What is Needed to Build a True Specialized Practice? (7:20 - 8:00pm)

To quote a Cloud services member ‘Simply moving customers to the Cloud is no longer a way to make money – if you can’t offer substantially more than that you are on a race to zero!’ For many Channel partners, specialization is the key to success. These days a lot of companies are building expertise to enable them to focus on particular vertical markets in order to improve their profitability and create additional value for their existing and potential customers. This session will share the steps they took to create that focus discuss the decisions they had to take. Explain how they acquired the expertise in their vertical sectors and how they marketed that expertise to drive increased revenue from existing customers and build a profitable new customer base.
