Winnipeg, MB 11/10/2012 – 365 Technologies Inc. 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. 365 Technologies 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 selected to join HTG Peer Groups is a huge honour. This allows us to contribute our expertise to a worldwide network of IT solution providers,” said Michael Anderson, 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, 365 Technologies is a welcome addition to our network,” said Arlin Sorensen, HTG founder and CEO. “365 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 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.”
365 will also benefit from access to more than 50 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 365 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.

Established in 2010 in response to traditional ways of supporting small business technology, 365 operates as an outsourced IT department for businesses without internal IT staff. 365’s unique business model uses a fixed monthly rate for support services, offering clients predictable technology costs.
