HoundDog Technology is aiming to become the
solution provider’s best friend by offering inexpensive remote monitoring and
management tools and incentives to bring more solution providers into the den.
The company announced Nov. 6 a new referral (or "Rufferral," in
HoundDog parlance) program that offers participating solution providers 20
percent of first-year HoundDog revenues of any IT support companies they have
referred. That would be a pretty impressive commission for what could be very
little work.

HoundDog is one of those rare products that
successfully sells itself. When a solution provider enters the managed services
realm, HoundDog helps it offer RMM capability at a price that both is
affordable and offers decent margins, all without complex contracts and minimum
seat requirements.
