IT documentation solutions enable an MSP to create a repository full of written records documenting all the processes that are done by an MSP. Though it can be a labor-intensive process in the beginning, investing in IT documentation early on will eventually save your technicians hours of time spent trying to recreate or invent processes for daily tasks.
