Gwinnett County Government has signed a contract with BlueWave Computing, asking the IT support and managed service to help the government redesign its SharePoint Intranet.
Microsoft (News - Alert) SharePoint is a Web application designed as a central application platform for common enterprise Web requirements. Gwinnett County has implemented the platform and currently uses it for over 3,000 employees.
Since 1997, BlueWave Computing has been helping small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB) with IT services, remote desk help, on-site support station, backup management, VoIP telephone system and application development.
Gwinnett County said BlueWave was chosen to help with the design because of its top ranking among the other bidders looking for the position.
“Gwinnett County wants to improve customer service by providing our staff better tools for productivity and efficiency,” said Gwinnett County’s Chief Information Officer, John Matelski.
“We are pleased with our selection to develop this program for Gwinnett County government, particularly for a project of this scale,” said Steve Vicinanza, BlueWave Computing CEO. “At BlueWave computing, we take pride in employing some of the most highly skilled technical minds in the business, which means we can deliver projects that scale easily.”
Bluewave manages entire IT departments, and in the past has brought team members to work on business premises if needed. The company claims it can help make any technology system more reliable and dependable for any business, while saving costs.
The BlueWave team currently has over 80 college-educated students on hand, along with, Microsoft-certified engineers who can handle any IT maintenance issue that may arise during setup and help companies troubleshoot with any concerns later on. BlueWave said due to its current success rate, it is comfortable taking on another client as large as Gwinnett.
“As the IT solution provider of choice for many of Atlanta’s leading small- to mid-sized businesses, we have a significant amount of experience deploying the Sharepoint platform successfully for our clients,” added Vicinanza. “We feel our expertise will serve us well when developing the new platform for Gwinnett County.”
