QBS Technology Group has announced the merger of the two MSP software distribution companies it has in portfolio, creating a new and highly-focused dedicated MSP distributor based in Warrington called QBS:MSP.
The combined company has a strong security bias and will provide software to almost 1,000 MSPs, serving over 40,000 monthly users, as well as support tailored specifically for this growing area of software delivery.
QBS:MSP will be led by Rick Yates, the founder of Zedsphere, who will stitch together the 4Serv business into the Zedsphere business.
“The IT Services industry continues to see strong growth, with more and more cloud vendors switching to an MSP first model. As a fully fledged member of the QBS family, along with 4Serv, we will now be in an even stronger position to bring leading technologies to the MSP space and continue to provide cloud vendors with step change growth,” commented Yates, managing director of the newly-formed QBS:MSP.
Key vendors benefiting from this change are Thycotic, Untangle, NinjaRMM, Webroot and Censornet. There will be three new vendors joining the line-up once the contracts are finalised.
“The obvious synergies between our two MSP distribution companies makes the merger an easy decision, both groups of vendors and customers will see instant benefit,” said Grahame Smee, CRO of QBS Technology Group.
Dave Stevinson, group CEO of QBS Technology Group, added: “Key to our strategy is having a strong MSP GoToMarket so we can enable our vendors wishing to access this discreet and growing market sector. These strategic acquisitions strengthen the recurring revenue business on our software delivery platform.”
