ORLANDO, Fla., June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The second annual Automation Nation conference, the premier conference for today's Managed Service Providers looking to thrive in the fast-evolving IT business world, kicked off today at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando. The three-day event, hosted by LabTech Software, features in-depth training, peer-to-peer insights and thought leadership from LabTech gurus with participation from select LabTech partners.
With an agenda tailored to the unique interests of service technicians, operations managers and business executives, Automation Nation 2012 features something for everyone. While executives learn about how to maximize their profits through improved processes and new channel opportunities, service technicians have the opportunity to take a deep dive into the features and capabilities of LabTech, including powerful scripting and automation functions and other in-depth features. Operations management professionals in attendance are learning best practices from industry leaders and peers who've streamlined their operations using LabTech.
This is the first year that Automation Nation is taking place outside of its usual November time frame to offer partners a standalone, dedicated event showcasing how to apply the power of automation to their businesses. With attendance that has surpassed the company's expectations, Automation Nation has a welcome reception for attendees scheduled for tonight, and breakout sessions, an interactive lab and additional speakers filling the upcoming days of the event.
Keynote speakers Paul Dippell, founder/CEO of Service Leadership, Inc., a leading solution provider consultancy and publisher of the Service Leadership Index®, and LabTech CEO Matt Nachtrab are set to discuss Managed Service Provider (MSP) industry trends and how to maximize the power of LabTech, the only powerful, robust-featured remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution developed by an MSP for MSPs. Attendees will also hear from managed services pioneer Gary Pica of coaching and accountability firm TruMethods, which helps IT solution providers reach their full potential as MSPs and cloud providers, and Shane Swanson, Director of General Operations at ARRC, one of the fastest growing and most recognized MSPs in the nation.
"All eyes in our industry are on increasing managed services efficiency and profitability through automation, and this event delivers the training, strategy, and opportunity to understand how the power of automation can transform an MSP's business," said Nachtrab. "We listened to our partners' feedback and turned this year's Automation Nation into something that service technicians, operations managers, executives and owners can benefit from in building their IT service companies of the future."
"Automation Nation is a can't-miss conference for us, for the 10 hours of dedicated training time, the networking opportunities, and the ability to get a first look at what's ahead in the RMM market from LabTech and all our vendors," said Alan Sielbeck, Owner of Safe Network Solutions. "I'm really excited for the custom tracks and breakouts by company role. I can bring more people from my company as the agenda offers something for everyone. If you're an IT service provider and you're not here, you're behind the curve."
