Founded in 1874, Garden Grove is one of the oldest cities in Orange County. As a full service City, Garden Grove offers its 173,000 diverse community members housing assistance, recreational programs, family entertainment, one of the top school districts in the country, and some of the most affordable places to live in "The OC."
Garden Grove employs nearly 1,000 full and part-time employees who work throughout the city and who are supported by a small IT department of 15.
In 2009, the City's email system became obsolete. Scalix's desktop app didn't support the remote access and multiple devices employees wanted to use to more effectively get their jobs done. Recognizing the drop in employee productivity as a result of missed meetings and unanswered emails, the IT staff at Garden Grove knew it was time to switch to an email and collaboration system built for the post-PC era.
