About Us

We are not looking for a transactional relationship; but rather a true partnership. We do not wish to be the IT vendor in the hallway; but rather your partner in the “boardroom”.

At Champion Solutions Group, we’re dedicated to delivering the most innovative IT solutions. We’ve been around for more than 35 years and boast over 400 certifications, and we’re still just as excited about sharing the next generation of technology with our clients as we were on day one.

We work hard to provide personalized service every day as we help your business compete in an increasingly digital world. We can help your company grow and provide a genuine partnership as your needs continue to change, no matter your system. Our commitment and ability to offer customized solutions keep us at the top of our clients’ call lists.

Our mission is to deliver solutions and services that increase productivity, reduce costs, and mitigate risk. As leaders in our field, we’ve never lost that creative spark that helps us innovate on systems that have long collected dust so we can push our clients to new heights. If you’re ready to reach, we’re ready to get you there.

Customized Solutions for Your Business

Developing the ideal solution for you is about much more than products. We’re conversant with all the most popular products, but we operate autonomously so that our focus can be on you and your needs. That’s where our creativity comes into play. We don’t just sell you products – our vision is to deliver solutions that increase your productivity, reduce costs, and mitigate risk. We believe that using your existing technology when it still serves its purpose beats selling you things you don’t need. But if you need to upgrade your infrastructure, we can show you how to do it economically. And if you’re ready for a complete overhaul, we have you covered there, too.  

You can place much of the day-to-day management of IT on our shoulders, giving you space and time to focus on what you do best, whether that’s coming up with the next big thing or providing your clients with the same great level of service we offer.

Our Five-Step Proven Methodology

To make sure we determine the ideal solution for you, we use a time-tested methodology to empower your organization and keep your systems secure. Clients who work with us have seen the following benefits:

  • Reduced monthly hardware costs by as much as 30-50%
  • Reduced IT operational costs by as much as 60%
  • Improved overall system utilization by up to 40%

We provide a comprehensive set of customized support services throughout the IT decision-making process. Our five-step method includes:

Discovery

Our consultants sit down with you and we listen. That’s it. We listen, we ask questions, and we let you talk about your needs before offering cost-effective solutions. As they say, if something isn’t broken, we won’t try to fix it.

Analysis

Our engineering staff provides a comprehensive analysis of your data, past and current projects, and vendor partner databases. We provide you with a detailed report of how your company's present situation relates to your existing and future technology needs.

Recommendation

Our next step is to generate a report card with best practices and recommendations to identify issues and opportunities within your IT environment. Based on our assessment, we’ll provide a proposed action plan tailored to your organization's requirements and constraints, and designed to help your team improve productivity, reduce costs and mitigate risks. We keep an eye on your budget as if it were ours.

Implementation

We offer delivery, implementation, integration, and onsite training of the recommended solution. Our team of certified engineers will implement the architecture blueprint designed in collaboration with our two teams, project managed under the Project Management Institute (PMI) framework. Training and end user adoption are an integral part of the implementation process. We’ve rightfully earned a reputation for designing and architecting solutions that solve real business challenges for our clients.

Ongoing Support

Champion provides ongoing lifecycle support to ensure you’re always getting the most out of your investment. Our continuous care includes monitoring, reporting, problem remediation, and help desk support.

Champion has one loyalty and that is to our clients. We take a vendor-neutral approach, which means we find the best solution based on all of your requirements — with a close eye on keeping costs down. Our proven methodology allows us to leverage your existing technology investments to their fullest before recommending a new and unbiased solution.

Erick Bacallao joined Champion Solutions Group in 2015 after a career of Software Development in Cuba at the National Cancer Care Institute of Cuba, followed by moving to the States with allAware.

 

Champion acquired allAware and its properties and Erick has utilized his extensive background and expertise in IT and Software Development to rise to VP of Product Development in less than 5 years. During this time, Erick has been involved with key projects that led to the launch of numerous products including CSP Boss, Inscape platform and 365 Productivity Insights.

 

Erick has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Havana. He won Gold Medals for Programming from the Ministry of Education in Cuba, and he is certainly still a Gold Medalist for Champion!

 

As President and CEO, Chris is responsible for the development of key strategic alliances and solution portfolio. He leads Champion’s go-to market and execution strategies for integrated offerings in the cloud, in security, and in digital infrastructure, always focusing on improving the customer experience and driving transformative business outcomes.

 

He also aligns key partner initiatives with company strategy and oversees corporate marketing and messaging to gain mindshare with customers and partners. It’s his vision and innovativeness that have catapulted Champion up the ranks to become a $100M+ organization—and one of the most respected solution providers in the industry.

 

Over the past two decades, Chris has also focused on mergers and acquisitions, as well as innovative product development. He is the original founder and an active member on the Board of Managed Maintenance, Inc., a SAAS provider and consulting firm that utilizes their award-winning One-View Portal to help the IT Channel and its customers manage their IT Maintenance.

 

Chris is also the original founder and chief strategist behind one of the original storage cloud providers, Storage Access / BluePoint. During the course of a few short years, he had raised $20M and took that company public on the Toronto Stock Exchange. It has since been acquired by Pomeroy.

 

In 2012, Chris led the acquisition of MessageOps and continued the product development and worldwide launch of its premier SAAS, 365 Command. Built on Microsoft Azure, 365 Command is currently managing over 1 million seats of Microsoft’s Office 365. After achieving this phenomenal milestone, 365 Command and other MessageOps O365 utilities were sold to Kaseya.

 

Over the past 35 years, Chris as worked tirelessly to not only advance his own career, but those of his employees. In addition to leading a $100M organization, Chris can also be found sitting with sales teams, cold calling and coaching, and validating why Champion has been listed on Best Places to Work by both South Florida Business Journal and Computerworld.

Ultimately, the success garnered by Champion Solutions Group, its associated companies, and their employees is due in large part to the leadership of its President and CEO. Perhaps the most fitting award Chris has earned is South Florida Business Journal’s 2013 Ultimate CEO Award.
