About This Episode
Frank DeBenedetto has the fascinating perspective of being both an MSP owner and a vendor. We dive in with him about the incredible service he provides through audIT and how it came out of a specific need in his own MSP, Two River Technology Group.
1:59 – Frank’s journey to the MSP industry began when he started offering managed services to clients of the financial services company he worked for before he even knew there was such a thing as managed services. He shares how audIT grew out of a personal need he had for his own MSP.

8:41 – Robb talks about why it’s easy for prospects and clients to say no based on cost. Frank dives into the concept of “gap selling” and how to use that to show clients and prospects why they need the products and services that you offer.

13:36 – Brian shares the difficulty he sees in tech-focused people trying to look beyond the technology and see the customer’s business needs. Frank further explains how audIT helps put the prospect’s business needs at the forefront so that the technology is seen as a support factor in helping them reach their goals.
