PSA Migration Made Easy: Solution Driven by Needs of ConnectWise Defectors

Many is the MSP that would love a more robust, scalable, and service provider-centric PSA. The only hitch? Fear of a difficult migration. There is a lot of data in that old PSA. And that data is the core of your managed services business.

Fortunately, BMS by Kaseya is purpose-built for MSPs, far cheaper than alternatives, and highly scalable due to its multitenant architecture. Many MSPs fear, however, that moving to this next generation will be difficult, and not all of their critical data will make it through the migration.

MSP group The 20 wanted to move from ConnectWise to BMS but worried about the transition. Kaseya built the BMS PSA Migrator to make it easy, and that solution is now available to all MSPs.

“BMS blows ConnectWise out of the water,” said Tim Conkle, CEO, The 20. “The new features and functionality made it a no brainer to switch. Not only are we able to better serve our customers, but our overall experience with BMS and Kaseya is superior. Our investment in the product is producing huge returns by both saving us money over ConnectWise and allowing us to create a new revenue-generating service offering around the product itself.”

Other MSPs can take advantage of BMS’ attributes without disrupting their business operations thanks to the BMS PSA Migrator. With BMS PSA Migrator, all of your data is completely moved in less than five days. Moreover, your time is not spent doing all the work, but instead the Migrator’s automated process does the heavy lifting. In fact, Kaseya gives MSPs everything they need to migrate and get up and running effectively with BMS, including best practices and professional assistance. In no time, all of your CRM data, tickets, time, expenses, assets, and more are resting comfortably in your new PSA.

Time may be money, but money is also money. Moving to BMS offers improved technician and business productivity, and savings. BMS is 30 percent to 50 percent less expensive than overpriced competitors.

The Migration Process

Before the migration begins, Kaseya BMS specialists will develop a detailed project plan focused on four core areas on which the Kaseya expert consultant will focus:

1. Discovery
2. Migration
3. Implementation
4. Testing/Training/Completion

The overall process is completely touchless. Instead of your staff grinding away, the Kaseya Professional Services Team manages everything — from start to finish. Your operation will gain the advanced functions and deep savings of this next-generation PSA — without distracting your operation.

After the migration, the Kaseya Migration Team will train your staff so they can start using BMS efficiently and effectively.
