Executive team does IT Nation 2016!

Just last week all three members of our executive team attended a jam-packed three day event in Orlando, Florida. Colin Knox, CEO and founder, Dan Wensley, President, and Mike Urquhart, CFO.

IT Nation is one of the largest events in the technology sector, with over 2500 solution providers in attendance. Passportal is proud to be ConnectWise Invent Member. In addition to being a Silver Sponsor of IT Nation this year, we were also one of the Sponsors for the first annual IT Nation Hack-A-Thon!

Our executive team was able to engage with new partners while catching up with partners who have supported Passportal for many years. 

Passportal took IT Nation by storm, Dan Wensley spoke on Thursday about how password management is a WIN-WIN for ITSPs and their clients. Passportal truly understands ITSPs having come from one. Dan spoke about the business operations of an ITSP along with the tools they use daily, such as Passportal, which is integrated with ConnectWise and LabTech for faster access to the passwords technicians need to do their jobs effectively. 

On Friday, Dan sat alongside Chuck Lobert, an active member of Passportal’s PAC (Partner Advisory Council) as well as Keith Crawford of Mainstream Technologies on a security panel facilitated by Webroot. The panel, Your IT Security Strategy: Safeguarding your Business and Theirs, discussed security as a key component of any healthy, revenue generating, managed service offering. Panel members spoke on their experience of end-user training, and how it can prevent unwanted situations, emphasizing the importance of having a sound security strategy.

Not only was the event filled with informative panels and sessions, our executive team even got to attend the IT Nation Celebration at Universal Studios. The famous amusement had Super Hero Island reserved for the attendees of IT Nation. Our team was thrilled with the outcome of the event, having connected with countless individuals over the course of the three days.

We look forward to meeting some of you at IT Nation 2017!!
