HTEx is a managed technology cooperative with independent participating solution partners, maximizing cost efficiency for its members through group buying power, network design, managed services, and facilitated collaboration. When asked why a business should seek membership in HTEx, Daniel Quigg, Chief Executive Officer of HTEx said, "Many organizations approach their voice and data equipment, internal (LAN) and external (WAN) networks, applications and maintenance costs as discrete components. Whereas these components really are interrelated and interdependent, a more effective holistic analysis is essential." Quigg went on to say, "Our approach results in enhanced communication functionality, a lower total cost of ownership and in most cases, the strategic end game solution being funded from ongoing cost savings. HTEx members are transforming how they communicate and use technology. They are becoming more agile and responsive businesses with improved process and customer experiences."
