Sundog selected to join IT company network HTG Peer Group

SYCAMORE, IL, March 2007 – Sundog announced today it has been selected to join HTG Peer Groups, a worldwide network of IT solution provider executives formed to collaborate and share business best practices. Sundog will participate in a peer group consisting of up to 12 non-competing and, in most cases, geographically separated, companies that work together to enhance each other’s professional and personal development in a fast-paced, increasingly evolving industry.

“Being accepted into the HTG Peer Groups is very exciting for our organization. Having the ability to connect and work with other IT Companies from around the world on a very deep level will be a key differentiator for Sundog,” said Cohen Barnes, President/CEO. “It’s a unique opportunity to share resources, gain insight from peers and mentors, and stay ahead of the curve on technology trends and tools that will benefit our clients.”

“As an IT Service Company dedicated to influencing the industry and improving business practices through collaboration with peers, Sundog is a welcome addition to our network,” said Arlin Sorensen, HTG founder and CEO. “Sundog and its services are among the best in the business, and their participation in HTG Peer Groups will give them a further competitive edge in their local and/or vertical market,” Sorensen also added that, “Due to the focus on business best practices, many clients find that HTG members are better suited to combining the client’s technology efforts with their business processes and needs, thus becoming a true business advisor and partner.”

Sundog will also benefit from access to more than 30 HTG vendor sponsors and strategic partners including ConnectWise, Microsoft, HP, SonicWALL, Cisco, IBM, Ingram Micro, CompTIA, Service Leadership Inc. and others. The ability to partner, learn, and in many cases, influence product functionality with such a large network of top tier vendors will provide Sundog with a wealth of resources not common among non-affiliated IT solution providers.

HTG’s unique member-to-member knowledge sharing format is an efficient, practical method that allows members to take a proactive role in their own business development. Each peer group holds an intense quarterly two-day meeting consisting of business reviews, benchmarking analysis, evaluation of tools, development of plans, sharing of best practices and goal setting. Execution of ideas and growth are the hallmarks of HTG member companies and, in many cases, a key differentiator in their local markets.
