Hedgehog Development Reaches Milestone with First Reseller Relationship

Inmento Solutions of Copenhagen, Denmark Signs On to Provide Localized Training Services For Hedgehog’s Team Development for Sitecore (TDS) Product

Holbrook, NY (August 25, 2011) -- Hedgehog Development, a leading custom application development company and creators of Team Development for Sitecore (TDS) today announced its first formal relationship with an independent sales agency in Europe to meet the growing global needs of TDS customers who seek the convenience and cost-effectiveness of localized TDS product training. TDS is a plug-in for Visual Studio that simplifies the process of adding Sitecore items to source control by allowing the user to synchronize selected Sitecore items directly into their Visual Studio project, which greatly simplifies the process of deployment. TDS streamlines the way individuals and teams develop Sitecore projects, work with each other, and with source code.

 A big step forward

The decision to work with resellers marks a significant step forward for Hedgehog and reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to expand its sales channels as it increases support for its secondary, growing business as an independent software vendor (ISV). The first reseller to sign on with Hedgehog is Inmento Solutions, a privately held, software development consulting firm based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Two well-known Sitecore experts formerly of Pentia A/S, Jimmi Lyhne Andersen and Jens Mikkelsen, founded Inmento, which specializes in the Sitecore platform.

As an independent sales agent and certified training partner for Hedgehog, Inmento will provide localized training, marketing, training manuals, and buyer referrals for TDS as well as introductions to related services. Hedgehog will retain rights to distribution and licensing of TDS.

“Inmento is the ideal reseller for Hedgehog. Jimmi and Jens share many of our core values and have a deep understanding of the key role that product training plays in ensuring customer satisfaction,” remarked Dan Galvez, CEO and co-founder of Hedgehog Development.  “Knowing that a team headed by these two well-known Sitecore experts will be training our customers on TDS gives us tremendous peace of mind,” he added.

Founders of the two companies met at Dreamcore Europe

The founders of Hedgehog Development and Inmento Solutions first met at a Dreamcore Europe Conference in Denmark in 2010. Dreamcore is a conference that brings together hundreds of partners and developers who use the Sitecore content management system platform, which is based on .NET technology, to discuss innovations surrounding the Web and digital customer engagement.

“We have so much in common with Hedgehog and are very honored to have been selected as their first reseller for TDS. Hedgehog has built a strong reputation for delivering innovative solutions for every Sitecore challenge they are presented with, and they always stand behind their products and services,” said Jens Mikkelsen, Partner, Inmento Solutions.

The importance of giving back to the community                                                                                          

The two companies also share a belief in giving back to the community. In 2005, Hedgehog co-founders Dan Galvez and Peter Madsen launched the local Long Island .Net Users Group for .NET developers in the Long Island, New York region where Hedgehog is headquartered. Galvez serves  as the group’s President and helps coordinate events for the other 200 active members. The pair  also recently launched a Sitecore Users Virtual Group, which is dedicated to supporting the Sitecore community wherever they exist across the globe. In 2009, Inmento co-founders Jimmi Lyhne Andersen and Jens Mikkelsen launched Learn Sitecore, a community-driven learning site about Sitecore, which consists of articles written by Sitecore enthusiastic developers, editors, administrators and architects, who voluntarily share their knowledge by writing articles for the site.

“Our approaches to business and life are very similar. All around, it’s a great fit for our two companies,” noted Galvez.
