We, Brian and Eric Dosal, are the previous owners/operators of a 50 person managed service provider (MSP) and a 30 person business intelligence SaaS product, BrightGauge Software.
We started and grew both those organizations from an idea to successful exits in 2012 and 2018 respectively. What we learned is we love "scratching our own itch" in regards to building products and services. Strety was born out of the need we had badly at BrightGauge to help our managers have one platform to manage their teams and help them be the best managers they could be.
Learn more about our journey from the video posted here. This was a fireside chat we participated in for Refresh Miami in April 2019. ❤️
The first product we created was BrightGauge, a solution for measuring and tracking KPIs from different data sources that we internally used to manage employee performance (metrics based). As we scaled BrightGauge, we realized we needed a broader product for running better team meetings and 1:1 meetings, performing 360 reviews, and aligning employee goals— alas, Strety was born! 💡
Eric and Brian Dosal start an MSP company within an existing IT company (Compuquip Technologies) with 4 people.
The Dosal brothers start BrightGauge as a client reporting solution for MSPs to help improve their MSP business.
The MSP reaches 50 employees in total.
Eric and Brian Dosal sell the MSP business to Konica Minolta.
BrightGauge launches the analytics portion of its platform.
BrightGauge's product crosses 1000 businesses all over the world using their platform.
BrightGauge reaches 30 employees in total. Leadership team of 5 people (4 of which were 1st time managers).
Strety is built as an internal tool for BrightGauge.
BrightGauge is successfully sold to Continuum. Brian & Eric exit the business with two team members to start Strety as it's own standalone business.
Strety is launched into Beta.
What Makes Us Different
From the beginning, Strety was built to be the all-in-one, go-to tool modern teams could rely on to meet their performance management goals. When we built the platform, we packed it full of all the things we wanted for our own business. 💻
By applying the experience gained from our own MSP/ITSP days, we were able to make the ideal tool for helping your organization meet its own performance management goals. We have the insight, we have the experience, and we have the track record for getting things done. 📈
