Windows Server 2003: Your Stress-Free Customer Conversation

A guide to selling MSP migration support


Cloud Server MigrationThe end is near: Microsoft ends extended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. Yet a recent survey found that 61 percent of businesses still run at least one instance of Microsoft Server 2003! There’s turbulence in the forecast for these businesses because, properly executed, a complete server migration can take six months or longer.

But that's no cause for panic. There are a hundred good reasons for migrating off the aging operating system, but MSPs that feed the hysteria stand to lose—not win—business. Getting businesses to migrate the last of their Server 2003 systems will take a special blend of tact, patience, and planning.

The good news is these upgrade holdouts offer some of the best opportunities for you to grow your customer base, increase your revenues per account, and set your business apart as strategic business partners.

Join us on Tuesday, June 16 at 2:00 p.m. ET to learn:

  • Why fear-based campaigns have failed to motivate a huge base of Windows Server 2003 users to upgrade
  • How MSPs can capitalize on this unique opportunity to take business to the next level
  • What use cases make Windows Server 2003 “sticky,” and what to do about each
  • Who the three customer types are and how to appeal to them with distinct sales pitches
