Pia's Usage-Based Model Optimizes MSP Resources

Pia's Usage-Based Model Optimizes MSP Resources

By Greg Tavarez

MSPs have long fought the limitations of fixed-rate automation solutions. These pre-packaged offerings present a trade-off; namely, affordability versus flexibility. On the one hand, fixed rates offer a predictable expense, which is attractive for budgeting purposes. On the other, MSPs often find themselves paying for features they may not require – a situation akin to buying a car with all the bells and whistles when a basic model would suffice. This inefficiency translates to wasted resources.

Moreover, a bigger challenge lies in scalability. As an MSP’s client base expands, the fixed-rate automation solution might struggle to keep pace. The pre-defined features may not accommodate the growing complexity of the managed IT environment. This inflexibility forces the MSP to remain stagnant within the limitations of the solution or incur additional costs by migrating to a more scalable, but likely more expensive, platform.

With Pia's recently announced usage-based model, those days are over. MSPs will only be charged for the resources and automations they leverage. This means that MSPs can:

Stop subsidizing features not used. MSPs pay for the automations that solve their specific client challenges and watch their bottom-line flourish. Focus the budget on growth initiatives, not bloated software subscriptions.

As MSPs scale, their Pia usage can too. No more worrying about being locked into a fixed-rate plan that can't keep pace with a growing client base. Add automations and resources as needs evolve.

Gain crystal-clear visibility into your Pia usage with detailed reporting tools. See exactly where resources are being allocated and identify areas for further optimization. Make data-driven decisions that maximize the value received from Pia.

Pia understands that some MSPs value predictability. That's why they’ll continue to offer its fixed-rate plans with unlimited usage – perfect for those who want to leverage the full spectrum of Pia's automation capabilities from day one.

But for the forward-thinking MSP seeking to break free from rigid pricing models, Pia's usage-based option is a game-changer. It's a commitment to putting the MSP in control.

“We believe that offering both usage-based and fixed pricing with unlimited usage options empowers partners to select the pricing model that best aligns with their business needs,” said Gerwai Todd, CEO of Pia. “Whether partners prefer the flexibility of usage-based pricing or the simplicity of fixed pricing, we are committed to ensuring they have the right solution for their businesses.”
