ConnectWise originated as a technology service provider in 1982.

The IT Nation is the global community of peers, made up of leading technology solution provider owners, industry thought leaders and IT professionals dedicated to helping each other remain accountable to their personal and professional growth. In 2019, the company became part of the Thoma Bravo portfolio, an investment firm with over 40 years of experience working with software infrastructure companies. The firm has acquired Continuum – the only platform that combined tools and tech with expert services to help technology solution providers see, protect, and proactively manage the health of their customers’ systems. Jason Magee, Chief Executive Officer of the company says, “The ConnectWise Platform offers intelligent software and expert services to easily run your business, deliver your services, secure your clients, and build your staff.” He adds, “We help manage your entire business with an award-winning PSA, quote and proposal automation, IT documentation, and real-time data and metrics.” With products aiding in business management, remote monitoring and management, remote control and access, quote and proposal automation, and cybersecurity risk assessments, integrations with hundreds of key vendors, plus the largest and most engaged community in the industry, ConnectWise has built a platform for The IT Nation.

Clients can also connect to an end user's camera to resolve issues as if the client is onsite.

Reflections of Trustworthiness
“ConnectWise Control gave the right push to RiskVal to become a global company. They've been able to continually demonstrate the value of their software and services to a client base that’s been more than willing to spread the word, which has led to more business for RiskVal” - Jordan Hu, CEO of RiskVal Financial Solutions.
“Before becoming a ConnectWise partner, my business was telling me that the low fuel light was on, and it wasn't just my business, it was myself as an IT professional, burnt out and tired. A year later, what the business is saying to me now is that the rockets on the launch pad and the boosters are loaded up, we're full of fuel and about to take off” - Reese Ormand, CEO, Techvera.
