As a Technical Architect at Sundog, I have the opportunity to help a number of our clients determine and shape the landscape of their system architecture.

We get to see what works really well - and what can leave room for improvement.

What if you could see the important interactions that customers had taken on your website, right alongside their sales histories?
Your marketing technology is important. So is getting the most value from it.
