Online billing portal specialist Datagate Innovation has won the ‘Best Newcomer’ award at the ConnectWise IT Nation (#ITN17) event this month in Orlando, Florida, with a cloud service to enable direct telecom and utility billing for ConnectWise users.
Hosted annually by ConnectWise, IT Nation is a major event for North American Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Technology vendors, distributors, solution providers and service providers from across the IT channel attend. The Best Newcomer award recognises the organisation generating the most attention as a first-time sponsor. This year, Kiwi firm Datagate stood out from the crowd.
The concept of ‘taking ownership and control’ of telecom service relationships with customers struck a chord with the ConnectWise MSP community, says Datagate CEO Mark Loveys.
“We were told there was a ‘buzz’ around Datagate as a newcomer to IT Nation,” he says.
“Our pitch in North America was for MSPs to ‘take ownership and control’ of their telecommunications business, control the pricing, choose the vendors, bill under their own brand, unify their billing. That really resonated with them. Datagate came away from the conference with over a hundred good leads. ConnectWise is a great partner for us and we’re so thrilled to win this award.”
ConnectWise clients use Datagate to resell the services of any upstream telecom or utility partners they choose, combining and bundling their service offerings with their own unique pricing plans and branding. Datagate’s telecom billing platform plugs into the usage data feeds of telecommunication providers and manages the data aggregation, rating, billing and analysis of service usage.
