United Solutions was founded by people who share a deep commitment to innovation

One of our defining moments was how we dealt with the Great Recession. While many small companies failed, we took this as a chance to reimagine our product and service offerings. This hardship was the crucible in which our mission statement – to do more with less – was forged. To this day, it helps define how we approach problems, apply technology, and help our clients remain competitive in ever-changing markets.
