SUCCESS Computer Consulting won more industry awards in 2022 than in any previous year in our 30-year history. Even better, the awards span every part of the company and service we offer – from managed IT and cybersecurity to Microsoft Office 365.  

In addition to creating an overwhelming sense of gratitude and pride among our team, this recognition reaffirms the company’s direction and commitment to customer success.  

President Bruce Lach says: “To be recognized by others – especially those knowledgeable about our industry – contributes to the company’s confidence that we’re doing it right. We’re successfully balancing what our business, team, customers, and community need and building something of value.”  

To celebrate our winningest year on record, we asked a few of our team members to reflect on the awards we received this year and how they believed each of their teams contributed to our success in 2022. 

CRN Managed Security 100  

Starting the year off strong, in February, CRN recognized SUCCESS as one of their Managed Security 100. We’re twice as excited about this one because it’s our second appearance on an annual list that recognizes top technology providers and consultants that offer cloud-based security services and support. Cybersecurity Engineer Eric Vollbrecht explained how he and the other members of the Security Operations Center (SOC) team are largely responsible for the work recognized by the CRN Managed Security 100 and why it proves they’re doing something right:

My team monitors the security alerts that come in for Success’ customers. We handle it all, whether it’s a spam message or ransomware attack. Winning this award assures me that we’re helping customers and doing the right thing for their company.”  

Ingram MVP of Communications and Collaboration 

In May, it was announced SUCCESS was chosen to receive the MVP of Communications and Collaboration award from Ingram. This award highlights partners that drive end-user digital transformation within the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. Winners are selected based on cloud business growth, peer-to-peer leadership, and level of engagement and alignment with the service.  Brent Morris, Vice President of Business Development, provided his reasons for why he thought this award was well-deserved: 

Working for a company that gets recognized for our contributions is rewarding and shows we have great people. I think our team won this award because they’re pioneering new ways to use the Microsoft 365 suite of products. They’re creating processes and solutions and then openly sharing them with other partners to help them mature.” 

Star Tribune Top Workplaces 

In June, for the sixth year in a row, SUCCESS was named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. This honor is significant because it originates in our hometown and evaluates how we measure up to the competition and engage with our employees. Tammie Coleman, Vice President of Finance & Administration, is the head of the team primarily responsible for maintaining such a well-respected and enjoyable company culture and shared why receiving such recognition is so valuable:

“My team’s main objective is to provide support and assistance to the internal SUCCESS team. We strive to do this in a variety of ways…through programs like Elevate, Engage, President’s Club, etc., as well as through our Town Hall meetings, provided lunches, Wellness initiatives and activities outside of work, etc. Working for a company that continuously wins this award means a lot to me because the reason we receive it aligns with what I value as an employee – I want to work for a company that values my contribution and provides a positive, enthusiastic environment for my work – this is what I have found at SUCCESS.”

Channel Futures MSP 501 

Also in June, SUCCESS was listed as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2022 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.  This award assesses providers like SUCCESS against various performance metrics, including annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue mix, growth opportunities, innovation, technology solutions supported, and company and customer demographics. President Bruce Lach described how this recognition is a reflection of the development and progress SUCCESS has made since it was founded in 1992:

SUCCESS has been in business for 30 years. Over the last decade, we’ve accelerated our growth by adding more services for more customers. It’s gratifying to receive the MSP 501 award, and it adds to the satisfaction I get from working with the SUCCESS team.”   

Top 250 MSSP 

In addition to the MSP 501, SUCCESS was also listed as one of the Top 250 managed security services providers (MSSP)in September. The list tracks the MSSP market’s ongoing growth and evolution each year and honors the top MSSPs worldwide. The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2022 readership survey combined with the site’s editorial coverage of MSSP, MDR, and MSP security providers. Cybersecurity Lead Architect Chris VanAnda explained what makes this award so applicable to SUCCESS’s services and offerings: 

 The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and new threats emerge daily. So, you’re behind if you’re not monitoring what’s happening in the industry. I appreciate how passionate our team is not only about security but about learning. I take great pride in working for SUCCESS, and awards like this are just icing on the cake.

2022 Clutch 1000 

Most recently, SUCCESS was named among the top 1,000 global service providers in 2022 by Clutch. Only the top 1% of companies using the Clutch platform worldwide make the list. Inside Sales Manager Jackie Woller attributed the nomination to the list to the hard work of her team and the willingness of our partner organizations to share their feedback: 

Customers like my team’s approach to account management so much that they take the time to write reviews about their experience. Winning this award is validation that my team’s hard work and dedication are worth it. And now, everyone else will know how great they are!” 

Here’s to 2023 and beyond!

2022 was a great year, and we’re so excited for what comes next. We look forward to continuing to grow and develop as an organization and further expand upon what we achieved this year. Thanks to all for your continued support!
