Core Values That Drive Innovation

Your Mission is Our Mission

Guide Star was founded by our parent company, CCI Systems, as a new set of innovative managed IT and cybersecurity services backed by a fresh take on existing technologies to better support small to mid-size businesses needing to add maturity to their tech without the mounting costs of total in-house support. CCI Systems and Guide Star are 100% employee-owned and our ESOP employees celebrate this culture of ownership.

We believe it is people who make technology valuable and recognize it is our greatest role to alleviate the constant pressure of buying more systems, services, and technology to meet growing needs by creating streamlined, customized IT and cybersecurity plans that are proactive, reliable, and secure. Every step we take as a business is guided by our core values.
