How remote monitoring and management software is driving growth for MSPs

With the pandemic seemingly now behind us, many organizations have embraced the modern workplace as the future of work. This means providing remote access to data and applications for their employees, as well as using remote monitoring and management software (RMM software) to maintain this access. Organizations that haven’t adapted to the demands of today’s workforce by offering these capabilities risk an increase in staff turnover, a decrease in talent retention, and a reduction in employee motivation. 

The growing demand for flexible remote work solutions  

Work from anywhere (WFA) remote access solutions have shown today’s workforce that they can achieve a better work–life balance with less commuting time and greater flexibility by working from any remote location, not just their home or office. Shared office spaces, airports, coffee shops, and even parks and green spaces are all now options for remote workers. Employers are extending their workday beyond the typical 9-to-5 to accommodate their staff’s desired lifestyles. 

An ongoing (and growing) demand for remote working and management software 

The need for and adoption of secure remote working and monitoring software by managed IT services, managed service providers, and similar organizations continue to grow.  

There are expected to be 36.2 million individuals working remotely by 2025, and 16% of global companies are already fully remote. Accordingly, the need for software that facilitates remote work, such as virtual applications and desktops, remote monitoring, and management software, and the companies that offer it are in high demand. 

This is because RMM software supplies the crucial performance data and reports that enable MSPs and other IT service companies to essentially keep tabs on their clients’ IT systems (servers, desktops, applications, and more), making remote monitoring more important than ever in today’s increasingly remote and virtual workspaces.  

For IT-managed service providers, meeting this demand likely means adding new services to their existing solution portfolio. Fulfilling this need while managing current workloads can be challenging. Moreover, recruiting new technical support staff or training existing IT teams to deploy, manage and support solutions comes at an (often significant) cost. 

Complexity, centralized control, and consistent performance are some of the primary challenges MSPs face when deploying remote working solutions as a service (Aas) for their customers. 

How MSPs can benefit from offering RMM software solutions 

Many managed service providers have adapted to the modern work environment by providing their customers with monitoring and management software that enables them to access systems, applications, and data from anywhere, using any device.  

Accelerating business growth by addressing customers’ needs with innovative and flexible all-in-one Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions is key for MSPs looking to succeed in 2023 and beyond. 

Some key services that Parallels RAS enables MSPs to offer include (but are by no means limited to): 

All these services fall under the umbrella of remote monitoring and management software, or RMM software.  

By providing customers with managed desktop as a service (DaaS) and SaaS solutions via hybrid and cloud deployments, MSPs can offer their customers a solution that delivers remote accessibility while protecting their data by centralizing, monitoring, and restricting access to desktops and applications.
