Office 365

Microsoft Cloud Strategies to help your Business Take Flight

Moving your business to the cloud can be thought of like moving from one building to another. It isn’t just a matter of telling your employees a new address. It is a logistically complicated process that needs to be carefully planned so your workflow stays consistent, so you don’t leave anything behind, and most importantly, so that you maintain business continuity. Moving to the cloud can be just as challenging, which is why you need a partner that works with you to develop solutions to meet your changing needs.

Champion Solutions Group and MessageOps (Champion’s Microsoft Cloud Business Unit) is that partner. We’ve moved thousands of organizations to Office 365, SharePoint Online, and Azure, one of only a few Microsoft partners with that kind of experience and expertise.

We help solve workflow and communication challenges by deploying solutions that leverage Office 365, SharePoint, and Azure plus enterprise mobility technologies.

Office 365: The Software of Choice For Successful Businesses

PowerPoint. Word. Excel. Whether our clients are crafting white papers that will sell hundreds of thousands of dollars in business or using spreadsheets to crunch critical financial information for the next board meeting, Office 365 is the software of choice. Champion’s sales, service, and support services help clients adapt this enterprise software in a customized way that’s right for their needs.

Shifting from software that’s installed on computers to Microsoft’s latest subscription-based model, which works on any device, is a game changer. It can also be challenging.

Our Office 365 experts worked with one client to help them understand how migrating to a Software as a Service (SaaS) model could improve their team’s mobility, collaboration, and critical tool access from anywhere. With Champion’s round-the-clock support, the company migrated their data, trained their team, gave everyone access to the latest software on their mobile devices, and provided real-time troubleshooting for any issues. The client was able to embrace the productivity and ease of the new model by building on the Champion team’s deep expertise in mobile device management.

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.
