About

Groove

For more than a decade, Groove has been a leading provider of DIRECTV services in commercial and hospitality.  Our solutions-oriented approach has led to a broad offering of technology solutions tailored to demanding customers who are value oriented.  While our early years were shaped by our efforts to survive, we ultimately found the place where our employees could thrive.  Today Groove is a dependable and trusted leader in technology implementations in the commercial, lodging and institution industries.

Why Groove?

The answer is simple . . . our employees. Our team is made up of a collection of characters with unique qualities and varied skill sets that are fostered in a culture of value and appreciation.

The result is a well-rounded, solutions-oriented team with a shared goal. We want to be our best so that we can be the best in the industry.

We’re not perfect, and things don’t always go according to plan, but collectively we recognize that every challenge provides an opportunity for growth which makes us better at finding solutions that are as personalized as the services we provide.
