Expert quotes carefully balance content and design, and logo placement is consistent throughout all communications. The mission is to make the quote easy to read and comprehend. There are standards, and nothing goes out unless it meets those expectations. ConnectWise offers a quote and proposal automation solution that’s dedicated 8+ years (and counting) to making it simple to deliver quotes that win. We’re well-heeled and ready to serve as your proposal guru. Follow these steps to find your path to quoting success.
Of course, there are cases where free really does mean free. But when it comes to using free quoting tools for your business, you may actually be paying a very high price. Spreadsheets and downloadable templates that cost nothing are fine for many business processes, but when relied on for creating quotes and proposals, they can cost you significantly in lost time and potentially lost sales. Making the switch to a CPQ (configure-price-quote) solution will help you automate time-consuming tasks, minimize errors, and create more compelling and professional sales quotes with just a few clicks.This eBook takes a look at how your current process could be hurting your business, and reasons why a quoting tool may be the best way to stop the pain.
Start new client relationships off right with professional looking, timely, and accurate sales proposals that demonstrate the excellent customer service clients should expect from your organization. Quote and proposal automation speeds up the sales closing process. It allows sales professionals to spend less time on administration and more time doing what they do best—selling. Automate the quote and proposal process so your organization can quote and close more deals, leading to stronger sales revenue.
Switching to a managed services model where clients pay you a fixed monthly rate to manage their entire IT infrastructure. If done correctly, this transition can be a lifeline to reliable revenue in a shifting market. Making the transition from an unsteady break-fix model to a proactive managed services model will require a systematic plan with well-thought-out steps that range from understanding your target market to implementing essential automation. If you’re considering becoming a managed service provider (MSP), these six steps can help. As you read through them, keep in mind that the best strategy is to have a strategy.
The goal of automation is not to eliminate or replace human labor, but to increase productivity and quality beyond what is possible with your existing team, so as to realize economies of scale and predictable quality levels. With automation, your team is able to manage more endpoints, because automation eliminates routine and mundane responsibilities or efforts, giving your technicians the time to focus on higher priority and more complex tasks. In addition, as a managed service provider (MSP), you receive a fixed fee for your services. As a result, you need to provide service in the most efficient way possible while delivering the highest levels of consistency and quality. Building automation into your IT services business will enable you to do so. In this eBook, you’ll learn tips and best practices to successfully incorporate automation into your IT services business, including:
At the end of the day, monitoring is all about finding problems before they cause issues for your users, and managing expectations when problems do crop up. Once critical and basic coverage is handled, start monitoring devices to keep everything tied together. If a switch, router, or hub goes down, or a printer starts having issues, you’ll know before the complaints start rolling in. When you automate recurring processes or tasks, your team can focus on delivering value instead of putting out fires.

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?

AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.
The digital workspace is transforming entire industries, but planning for the changes necessary to make the digital workspace a reality is challenging for many IT leaders today. In this book, you’ll learn about a new approach to creating a successful digital workspace strategy for your organization.

The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking.
The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties.
This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.
In this InfoBrief, we discuss the broad impact of digitization and how organizations are utilizing RPA technologies for driving business outcomes.
We also share use cases and examples from different sectors, as well as key factors that organizations need to consider when selecting a partner for RPA deployment.
Since RPA is the latest buzzword, there is a lot of noise around this topic and we aim to filter the noise and provide key insights, as well as offer essential guidance for successful RPA strategies.
Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.
Global corporate enterprise AI practitioners are clearly still dealing with infrastructure issues related to talent and technology. End-to-end processes remain stubbornly carbon-based. Rule-based automation is truly not yet globally scaled across the majority of organizations.
Double the AI
And yet, the AI & Intelligent Automation Network members went from 21%, having deployed Intelligent Enterprise solutions to over 44% in just one year’s time.
Over 4/5 expect to deploy AI in under two years
The stated goal for deployment is just under 83% by the end of 2020. Considering the fact that they’ve essentially got two years, and those ranks have doubled in one year – doubling again in two years is achievable. Incidentally, that same number was only 67% a year ago.
50% expect to be established, globally scaling or refining AI in under two years
Global corporate enterprise is in fact slowly but surely transforming into the intelligent enterprise of tomorrow. Having said that, it will be
