the Sundog name
Sundog’s CEO, Cohen Barnes, is a committed runner, even in the Illinois winters. On a very cold morning run in 2012, he encountered the atmospheric phenomenon known as a sundog, where sunlight is refracted by ice crystals to form bright, colorful patches on either side of the sun. As this was just at the time he and his team were searching for a new name for their company, it seemed like a sign.

Learn how we have helped so many have great IT
One Word Comes to Mind … ExpertiseOne word comes to mind when summing up our IT service provided by Sundog. Expertise. As a CEO, I know that we have access to IT expertise with the Sundog team that I don’t have on staff. We are in the food business – hiring and maintaining IT expertise on our staff is not our core, and we know we are better off letting Sundog provide this expertise. They are very responsive, and their staff is extremely friendly to work with. If there is ever a problem, they are committed to fixing it. Sundog is a firm you can trust to give you great service and high value.
As a Manufacturer, We Found Sundog to be Cost CompetitiveWhile we just began formally transitioning our IT services to Sundog, it is already apparent they are taking ownership of our network and proactively managing risks. Their team possesses solid credentials and experience. They haven’t run away from an issue we have experienced yet. The Sundog team displays a desire to learn in situations they have not experienced before and show a passion for helping us take things to the next level. They also look for opportunities to install technology to increase our productivity. As a manufacturer, we are always watching our costs, and Sundog is cost competitive. But, while costs are an important factor, it is also important (for me personally) to actually like the people I do business with. I truly enjoy working with the team at Sundog. The combination of these things made it.
