SSE has long been a pioneer in the tech field.
This is a male-dominated industry, even today, and the demographics were far more one-sided decades ago.
And yet, thatâ€™s when Susan S. Elliott founded Systems Services Enterprises (SSE), way back in 1966. While working at IBM as a programmer she had the foresight to see just how ingrained computers would become in everyday life. So, she started her own company to cater to that approaching trend, working at first from home in a humble basement setup with her computer on a piece of plywood.
In the early 80â€™s, Elliott began focusing on the PC platform, teaching individuals how to use them. Corporations soon took note of how computers could boost productivity and improve their bottom line, and they turned to SSE to train their employees and implement what was then exciting new technology in their offices.
A Fine-Tuned, Well-Oiled Machine
Over the years, SSEâ€™s business has adapted to the times and the technology shifts.
We never stop learning and never stop improving our effort to better serve St. Louis SMBs. SSE was among the first in the St. Louis area to support personal computers in the ’80s, we were the go-to experts on networking in the ’90s, and in the early ’00s we were creating and fine-tuning our proactive monitoring and Managed I.T. Services offering to help businesses stay ahead of the game. We inherently understood the value of not just reacting to problems as they came up and sought to bring â€œpreventative technologyâ€ Pretecht to the market to identify issues before they became a problem. Just recently, we’ve again revolutionized our offering by adding a comprehensive range of industry-leading technologies to address the dynamic data security landscape as a part of our Managed Services.
By providing backup and disaster recovery capability in a single service, business-class hardware for firewall protection, comprehensive web filtering, and antivirus security, we can equip our clients with a data security suite bundled into our single seat price.
Our 24/7 Pretecht Monitoring solution provides SSE with the tools to prevent many typical outage scenarios. Less downtime means your employees will have more time to get more work done, and a more productive workforce means youâ€™ll have an easier time meeting your strategic objectives and your revenue goals.
Finally, you have the peace of mind of knowing your data is secure. Our reliable backup solution will protect your files no matter what happens (malware infection, hardware failure, fire, flood, tornado, take your pick), so even in a disaster scenario, you wonâ€™t lose any progress on assignments and projects as you work seamlessly out of the cloud (and donâ€™t forget, thatâ€™s progress in which youâ€™ve invested mightily through the wages and benefits of your employees).
And with our remote software, when an issue does arise we can address it as fast as any onsite team.Â We provide you with all the benefits of having your own fully resourced in-house I.T. department, at a fraction of the cost.
More Partner than Provider
We’re interested in more than just network security, backup, and recovery, maintenance and optimization, etc. Those services are indeed important, but we also want to help you grow.
Helping you grow is what sets us apart. Weâ€™ve experienced the past 40+ years of I.T. in business firsthand, and that gives us a unique perspective: weâ€™ve seen what works, and weâ€™ve seen what doesnâ€™t.
This extensive expertise allows us to offer the advice you need to really harness the power of technology. Where do you see yourself in a few years? What are your long-term goals? Holding regular meetings with your leadership every four months allows us to be in the loop and stay up to date with any changes to your organization to provide the support that always makes sense for your budget and needs. Our experts will handle every aspect of I.T. projects and design strategies that use technology to help you meet your long-term business goals.
With our help, you can spend less time worrying about technology and more time focusing on all your other responsibilities.
Weâ€™ve enjoyed the past few decades of serving St. Louis and the surrounding area, and weâ€™re excited about the decades to come.
