GroveSite strives to make web-based collaboration easy, fast and affordable for all types of businesses and organizations — regardless of size.

GroveSite was founded on the knowledge that existing collaboration tools lacked the flexibility, affordability, and responsiveness needed to meet the emerging needs of organizations. With the advent of cell phones, laptops, and widely-available internet access, working teams were becoming more dispersed. Organizations were increasingly looking to form partnerships and strategic alliances to pool talent, move product and ideas, and increase efficiencies. Existing collaboration solutions were complex, expensive and required intensive implementations. GroveSite stepped in to provide an easy, fast, and affordable solution to organizations, regardless of size.

GroveSite is a privately held organization headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. GroveSite was founded in 2002 by three principles, Thomas I. Selling, Jane Hagen, and Joseph S. McVicker. With over 75 years of combined management, technology and marketing experience, they launched the first hosted GroveSite offering in 2003. GroveSite was among the pioneers in offering a Software-as-a-Service product.

Since that time the company has flourished, offering a respected product on a secure operating platform, and providing superior customer service to its growing client base. Grove Technologies has aggressive plans to upgrade its flagship product in 2010 and expand its distribution channels.
