Build Your Own Brand with Acronis White-Label Software
In today’s increasingly digital world, managed service providers (MSPs) fight for their customers’ attention, looking for ways to make them stay and purchase more services. One way to encourage that behavior is to develop a dependable brand of products and services that customers can trust.
While managed service providers can sell multiple services from different brands, it doesn’t build any real loyalty to the company itself. However, if they had their own brand of dependable solutions, customers would be more likely to buy more services of that same brand.
It’s for this reason that many service providers build their own solutions to sell to their customers. This way they can offer valuable services to their customers branded with their own company names, logos, domain URLs, and their own contact information. These integrated services help them build necessary brand equity.
Customers like such branded solutions because they come from their own trusted provider, often at a special negotiated rate. Service providers like branded solutions because they help them to extend brand awareness, add value to their company, and to increase the stickiness of services they provide to their customers. When customers are ready to purchase more capacity or look at adding new services, their trusted vendor’s brand is right there to serve them.
While these are all good reasons for customers and the service providers, there’s one big challenge that becomes apparent. Not every service provider has sufficient resources to build new integrated business solutions to meet the customers’ demand. It also takes away from the service provider’s core business of providing the best services available on the market. Especially in the world of IT software with a multitude of different vendors competing for the same market share, building the best-in-class software is usually outside the provider’s wheelhouse. While it’s possible to produce something that looks good on the surface, customers will soon find out if something is wrong and will look elsewhere for a better product.
A better option for IT service providers is to deliver white-label software from a trusted vendor, under their own name and with their own contracts. (See “Why A White Label Solution Is Easier Than Building Your Own” on Forbes.com.) White-label software works just like the generic product brands found in supermarkets and big-box distributors — the retailer buys a product in bulk, packages and sells it to the customer at its own configuration, its own price, and stamped with its own name. The same model can now be applied to business software. Service providers don’t need to develop their own in-house expertise on building the solution… they just need to apply their own pricing, packaging, and branding to a proven product. This way service providers save money, get to market faster, and are more likely deliver a better service to their customers.

These service providers not only leverage their own brand, but their datacenter capacity as well. For sizable deployments, service providers can take advantage of the Acronis Storage software defined storage (SDS) solution, enabling fault-tolerant storage clusters across unlimited nodes of commodity hardware.
