Secure Data Technologies Adds New Office in St. Louis, Missouri as Customers Flock to Doing Business Locally
St. Louis, MO – July 24, 2019 – Secure Data Technologies, Inc (Secure Data) announced today the opening of a new office in St. Louis, Missouri to support unprecedented growth in new accounts, existing accounts and recurring revenue. This is the second new office location the company is launching this year and has two additional locations under evaluation.
Secure Data is a technology services provider that has refocused its entire market approach to high-touch, face-to-face, local service and a commitment to long-term relationships. This strategic approach, dubbed “BUY LOCAL TECH”, has generated a groundswell of new business activity, opened the door to significant new partnerships and is changing the technology services landscape in the markets they serve. Many of the company’s competitors have chosen a completely different path, reducing human-to-human interactions and pushing sales and service to virtual interactions (email, text, web).
“We have relationships that no one our size has,” says Dana Steffey, Secure Data’s CEO / Founder. “I know it sounds a bit funny to say, but the technology business is really a people business. Technology solutions are tools to make organizations more effective. Secure Data helps our clients understand what these tools can do, and then we make it happen. When issues arise, our experts can simply drive down the street to work hand-in-hand with the client to get things back on track.”
To support the increased demand, Secure Data is in the midst of an aggressive hiring initiative. The company has plans to add more than thirty (30) new, high-paying technology jobs over the next year for Sales, Operations, Accounting, Engineering, Network Operations Support, Project Management and Customer Service.
Secure Data is an infrastructure technology solutions provider that specializes in consulting, professional services and solutions for information technology in the areas of managed services, cloud, collaboration, data center, networking and security. They were recently named Cisco’s 2018 Partner of Year, for the Central United States.
When originally launched in 2017, the BUY LOCAL TECH initiative was a response to the growing trend of consolidations and acquisitions amongst technology solution providers that was diminishing local jobs, community investment, and geographic empathy in the St. Louis market. Today, Secure Data is one of just two of the top solutions providers to boast local ownership. The vast majority of the technology solution providers are owned by super regional resellers or investment funds with no tie to the local economy.
“We are truly excited about the new St. Louis office. From day one, we expect the new location will enable increased client interactions with both project team meetings and training events,” says Steffey. “We chose this particular location because it is centrally located in Chesterfield, and the home of the local Cisco team. Cisco is one of our most important partner relationships.”
Secure Data Technologies, Inc. is an infrastructure technology company, which provides clients with hardware, software, managed services and professional services in four areas: Collaboration, Data Center, Network and Security. The company has a deep-seated commitment toward long-term partnership, while providing fearless technological stewardship to enable business transformation.
