No Slowing Down
Atera just celebrated the first anniversary of its launch in January 2016, but the developer of software for managed service providers isn't sitting still, recently announcing plans to triple its revenue and customer installed base by the end of 2017.
"At our current velocity, [tripling our revenue] isn't a crazy goal, … we can achieve it," said CEO Gil Pekelman in an interview with CRN. The startup will double-down on its investments, he said, including building out its executive team and spending on R&D to continue developing the technology behind its software.
Last year Atera went on a tear, Pekelman said, building up its customer base by targeting smaller MSPs that wanted to expand their services, but couldn't afford the remote mobile management (RMM), remote access, help desk, billing and reporting software sold by established vendors.
Now the startup is ready to go after larger MSP clients and has its competitive sights set on the major players in the MSP software market. Based on Pekelman's roadmap, here are five things we can expect to see from the startup this year.
