Out of the thousands of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in the United States, Stronghold Data was named ChannelFutures 2021 MSP of the Year. Many MSPs provide adequate services to their clients, but few have what it takes to really stand out above the rest. That’s because the qualities that qualify an MSP of the Year come from more than service offerings, and reflect a company’s core values. 

The core values that any company has determine how they operate and what their mission and values are. The three core values at Stronghold Data are what truly set it apart and make them a top MSP in the technology industry. Those three core values are: Others Deserve Our Best, Building Healthy Relationships, and Results Driven. 

Others Deserve Our Best 

This may seem like a simple core value that every MSP should pursue, but for many, the concept of giving others their best gets overlooked. It can be easy for any company to hit ‘cruise control’ and just do the bare minimum for their clients. At Stronghold Data, cruise control is not an option. We put others’ needs above our own, serving them with excellence, respect, and providing them with the best technology solutions for their business needs. ‘Others deserve our best’ means putting the client first because at the end of the day that’s who we serve. It means giving others all we have to give, no excuses, no cruise control. 

“It can be easy for any company to hit ‘cruise control’. At Stronghold Data, cruise control isn’t an option.”

Building Healthy Relationships 

No company, especially MSP of the Year, can survive without healthy relationships, and we know this. Which is why we strive to build healthy relationships at every level – from client to coworker. We are committed to the long-term success of both our client and our team. This means that we work through our differences, set aside our pride, and do what it takes to work together as a team. This allows us to deliver a level of service that only a strong team can deliver and results in a trusting, committed, and invested client and team member. 

Results Driven 

Do you love football? Because we do. And we play it every day. By that, we mean we go for the end zone on every play. Some MSPs like to play ping pong, waiting for the ball to come back to them. We want to  apply a qualified skillset humbly, yet confidently. We want to execute the task at hand with efficiency. On offense or defense, the goal is the same: score a touchdown. We don’t go for field goals; we go until we reach the desired result.
