GMA helps city procure equipment to start operations and launch website, data backup & disaster recovery, and email.
As one of the newest cities in Georgia, Peachtree Corners is
located in fast-growing Gwinnett County in metro-Atlanta.
Located near successful business clusters such as Technology
Park and The Forum, Peachtree Corners is a planned community
that is now the largest city in Gwinnett County. Like any new city,
Peachtree Corners is creating everything from scratch – from its
vision of the future to the most tactical aspects of its operations.
From the start, Peachtree Corners needed robust IT to help them
hit the ground running. Like most cities, they needed a website,
basic hardware to help run operations, software licensing, and
email. Without the basics in place early on, Peachtree Corners
would not be able to effectively serve citizens—and these citizens
would be watching this new city very carefully.
In addition, Peachtree Corners also had to think about ongoing
costs that included data backup, disaster recovery, website
hosting, website content management, hardware support, and
access to a helpdesk. The city had not yet budgeted for longterm
future IT costs, and the potential high cost of building an IT
infrastructure seemed daunting.
Peachtree Corners solved these challenges by using the Georgia
Municipal Association’s “IT in a Box” service. Powered by
Sophicity, “IT in a Box” is a complete IT solution for cities and
local governments. The service includes a website, online
payments, onsite data backup, unlimited offsite storage of data
backups, email, document management, Microsoft Office for
desktops, server, desktop, and mobile management, vendor
management and a seven-day a week helpdesk.
“IT in a Box” helped Peachtree Corners:
Peachtree Corners saved $66,459 of the costs typically spent
launching a city network of their environment and size. “IT in a
Box” helped Peachtree Corners establish a strong technology
foundation and create a predictable IT budget.
Sophicity was instrumental in getting Peachtree Corners off the ground and running in regards to all aspects of IT.
They provided the City with outstanding service in putting together the entire IT infrastructure from the desktop
computers and servers to the security to protect it. The support team did an outstanding job during those first
pivotal moments of setting up users for email, answering phone calls for support, and establishing security settings
for each user based on their role with the City. Sophicity was also integral in helping the City build, launch and
maintain our website. - Accounting Manager/Clerk of Court Brandon Branham
