Through Sophicity, GMA’s longtime IT consulting partner based here in Georgia, GMA now offers a service named, “IT in a Box”, which provides cities with state-of-the-art information technology tools supported by experienced, highly skilled IT professionals. For one monthly fee, a city will receive a website, data back up and offsite data storage, email, document management, Microsoft Office for desktops, server and desktop management, vendor management and Helpdesk support seven days a week.
Prior to offering this service to our members the cities of Flowery Branch, Oakwood and Oxford served as pilot cities. Each of the cities was at a different place with their IT infrastructure and all found significant benefit through the service. Fees are based on the number of employees and the size of the city’s technology infrastructure, making “IT in a Box” affordable for city budgets to suit the needs of our smallest to largest members.
Oakwood city manager Stan Brown and Flowery Branch Mayor Mike Miller talk about their city’s experience with IT in a Box at the 2012 GMA Annual Convention.
