BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- CharTec, a complete "Hardware as a Service" (HaaS) provider, today announced its platinum sponsorship of HTG Peer Groups.  The Platinum sponsorship is a year round partnership with HTG and CharTec's first engagement will be taking place during the HTG ALL &Q4 Meetings, November 2-4 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL.  CharTec will be showing their new Backup Disaster Recovery solution as well as their award winning HaaS model for MSPs.  This partnership will highlight the unique CharTec platform during HTG events as well as on the HTG Portal throughout the year.  The commitment further shows how partnerships beyond products and solutions are helping to create open channels to greater business success.  



The HTG Q4 Meeting attracts hundreds of HTG members, who are IT solution provider executives dedicated to influencing the industry and improving their own business practices through sharing and collaboration with peers.  Twenty three peer groups will be attending this event.  Well over 500 attendees including HTG members, vendor sponsors, strategic partners and speakers will attend the meetings.  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.  This year's event will highlight application development, cloud computing as well as sales and marketing management.

"CharTec is a great addition to our roster of vendor sponsors," commented HTG CEO and founder, Arlin Sorensen.  "Their creative approach to the marketplace, by offering hardware as a service (HaaS), allows our members to offer fixed cost options to their clients and helps them stand out from the herd of other IT competitors in their local markets.  Their knowledge of, and insight into, the needs of small businesses aligns perfectly with our mission to enable our member companies to leverage the collective wisdom of their peer group to drive growth in their business by offering new and different solutions."

"HTG Peer Groups deliver enormous value to their members, and the annual event provides the best networking and educational opportunities in our industry today," said Alex Rogers, CharTec CEO.  "As a Master MSP we are in the business of supporting solution providers with consistent training for Partners and MSPs.  We could not do less than to go 'all in' at the Q4 Meetings in Orlando, and show our support through sponsorship at the highest level available."
