Trends in 2020

As we discussed in the previous blog, there is a growing trend of small and medium-sized businesses outsourcing their IT functions to Managed Service Providers, or MSPs, for reasons of cost, time efficiency and technology support and expertise.

That creates M&A opportunities for MSPs looking to expand their menu of services, increase market share and diversify revenue streams.
