Small MSP wins more clients and increases margins with Auvik
Auvik’s cloud-based solution helped small MSP NoctisIT win more clients, manage their entire IT environment, and boost revenue by 30%, thereby increasing margins.
NoctisIT saw a number of benefits with Auvik Network Management
Auvik protected NoctisIT from unknown issues like unmanaged switches and old versions of software on the firewall, which helped them avoid unexpected costs and maintain their margins.
With Auvik’s help, NoctisIT was able to find more core issues that they had to resolve, which led to a 30% increase in their onboarding revenue.
Authority with Prospects
Auvik gave NoctisIT authority with prospects by showing them the totality of their infrastructure, which none of these folks had ever seen before. This helped NoctisIT position themselves as trusted business advisors.
High Prospect Conversion
Since implementing Auvik’s cloud-based network remote monitoring and management solution six months ago, NoctisIT has closed 100% of its prospects, which is a testament to the effectiveness of Auvik’s solution in helping MSPs win more clients.

How Auvik helped
Boosting the bottom line
Auvik has helped NoctisIT boost its revenue. “I look at Auvik as price protection for NoctisIT. It protects us from unknown issues like unmanaged switches and Windows XP machines the client forgot about, and old versions of software on the firewall,” he says. “Auvik gives us a good idea of how much work we’re going to have to do.”
As a result, “Our onboarding revenue has gone up by 30% since we implemented Auvik because it has helped us find more core issues that we have to resolve. And Auvik has significantly improved our margin by helping us avoid sunk costs—work we can’t charge for because we said the statement of work is A, and the statement of work is really B.”
The amount of time Auvik saves NoctisIT through its alerting and management functions goes directly to the bottom line, he continues. “Auvik on every occasion pays for itself in the first 5 to 10 days of the month. Everything after that increases our margin because we’re spending less time managing the customer.”
More than network mapping
Jason picks Auvik as his premier alerting and troubleshooting tool over other software he uses to monitor his clients’ devices. “Auvik has helped us shorten the remediation time for issues or suspected issues we may have with the network in Layer 2 or Layer 3. Tool number one is Auvik because I can go back 10 minutes or 2 hours or 24 hours and immediately see exactly what’s happening with a specific device.”
Jason says he’s pleased to call himself an Auvik champion. “I can’t imagine a situation where an MSP rolls out Auvik and then doesn’t choose to leave it there because it immediately becomes a core tool for analyzing what’s happening. It’s an incredible piece of the knowledge framework of every customer.”
