In this webinar, we will focus on the current and future trends of B2B managed services, including:
•How companies have been using B2B managed services
•Top business drivers: cost reduction, increased productivity, and more
•Top value-based benefits: faster customer on-boarding, improved budget planning, and more
•Recent research findings that provide a deeper dive into key B2B managed services trends
