How do the UK channel’s most disruptive and fastest-growing firms see the next few months playing out for themselves and their competitors?

Three months ago, CRN Rising Stars 2020 highlighted seven resellers and MSPs lighting up the market with their growth, profits and ability to disrupt.

But their whole way of doing business – along with their plans for expansion – were themselves disrupted in March when the COVID-19 crisis resulted in lockdown for them and their customers.

Five weeks on from when social distancing was first introduced, CRN revisited four Rising Stars bosses to talk about how they have responded to the pandemic, and what impact they think it will have on the industry longer term.

As numbers emerge hinting at the scale of the possible fall out from COVID-19 in the channel, episode 2 (above), looks at how they see the pandemic playing out for their business over the next few months.
