IT Services

Through Sophicity, AML now offers a service, "IT in a Box," which provides cities with state-of-the-art information technology tools supported by experienced, highly skilled IT professionals. Congratulations to the cities of Yellville and Bethel Heights for being the first two municipalities in Arkansas to sign on with "IT in a Box!" We will keep you updated on their progress.

"IT in a Box" At-a-Glance...

From backing up data to modernizing your website, we know it’s tough for cities to invest in the right technology and hire the best professional expertise to guide them along. But those investments need to happen. Otherwise, your city operations are at risk. To address these needs cost-effectively without taking any shortcuts, we helped create a packaged technology service that we call “IT in a Box.” From the minute you say 'go,' "IT in a Box" provides you with essential technology services and solutions that modernize your city’s IT for a fraction of the typical costs. So what’s inside "IT in a Box?"

  • A modern, user-friendly city website. 
  • Data backup and offsite storage to protect your information from a disaster. 
  • Document protection and easy document retrieval for open records requests. 
  • A modern, business-grade email system. 
  • 7 days a week helpdesk, every day of the week.
  • Vendor management—meaning we speak to technology vendors on your behalf.
  • Full management of your servers, desktops, and mobile devices. Plus, we provide you Office Professional Plus for your desktops that includes the latest versions of Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, InfoPath, Publisher, and OneNote.

Costs

We customize "IT in a Box" plans depending on the number of your employees and the size of your city’s technology infrastructure. This customization makes “IT in a Box” affordable for your budget, from the smallest city to the largest city.

Our Mission

The Arkansas Municipal League was founded in 1934 and exists for a threefold purpose:

  • to act as the official representative of Arkansas cities and towns before the state and federal governments;
  • to provide a clearinghouse for information and answers; and,
  • to offer a forum for discussion and sharing of mutual concerns.
