The Hayward Area Recreation and Park District provides recreation services for over 300,000 residents across six jurisdictions near San Francisco, CA. It encompasses a 104 square-mile area, includes over 20 miles of hiking, and even the state’s oldest Japanese garden. Recently, it realized its IT system was woefully inadequate.
After an extensive search, The Park District chose Avenu to help solve its IT challenges. The decision was driven by Avenu’s tremendous amount of experience with municipal clients, and the need for a partner that could take a comprehensive view of the IT environment.
The initial wave of the partnership included updating all the employee’s computers and software. Through a collaborative approach, the relationship has grown to include replacing the entire network across twenty-two different buildings.
The Park District’s James Wheeler summarizes his experience with Avenu in this way: “I think the beauty of working with Avenu is that if I have a concern, I can express it. Avenu is very professional and very responsive. Our board is very happy with what they’ve been doing, and our employees appreciate that they have up-to-date equipment. It makes them feel valued. The Avenu employees we’ve had onsite are really great people to work with who are very smart and passionate about what they do. They care about our agency. They seem to genuinely care about protecting us, making sure we are getting the best deals on computer equipment, and doing everything the right way.”
