Some of the other industry-leading communities we work with include IT Nation, AutoTask Community Live and Heartland Technology Peer Groups (HTG)."
"We had seen VAR Staffing at a number of different [events], whether it was boot camps, trade shows, conferences, etc. They were really the only ones we've ever seen at any of those types of shows," said Cognoscape's St. Martin. "They were at Varnex. And that's what they do, and they do a really good job" Whalley Computer Associates' Whalley said.
