What is IT Glue?

IT Glue is a documentation platform that allows for efficient storage and retrieval of all the documentation you need to help your MSP run better. With IT Glue, you have a way to take the information that may be cluttering up other systems and structure it properly inside IT Glue, to provide a more effective organization of information to your team. You can think of IT Glue like adding a flexible shelving system to a cluttered home office. By organizing and labeling the shelves in a logical way, you're improving efficiency.
