Inside UGT

who we are

United Global Technologies (UGT) is a different kind of technology company. Founded in 2005 with a morale backbone of two founding partners, UGT has emerged as a leader in the IT and Engineering Services vertical. Recently named to the INC 500/5000 and selected as one of the TOP 100 IT service providers in the US only solidifies our mission and focus on helping clients achieve their goals in a way that has not changed since our first day in business. We asked ourselves “What if a company could work with a strategic partner in a manner that presented a win-win scenario, offering a single point of contact that could conduct all the required IT and Engineering activities in a scalable ‘service as needed’ model”? Would that be something companies would be interested in? The answer was yes and the idea spread. It spread fast.

Our focus is our clients’ business, what people do and how they make money is the focus of our company. UGT will look at business process, quantitative measures to determine priorities, and then determine technology and engineering solutions that leverage those business requirements allowing for a more efficient and profitable business. No business service exists in its own silo, but it exists to support the business. When that becomes the application of technology, clients’ quickly realize ROI, understand TCO, and look for UGT to provide a more strategic role in their overall business development.

This is more than IT and Engineering services. This is our clients’ future and nothing could be more serious.

culture

Culture is a unique situation with major challenges in most companies. However United Global Technologies is a company with distributed teams across clients that have all their own cultures. So how do we set Culture across so many different environments….simply put, there are intrinsic values across environments that make certain cultures favorable for technology and engineering employees. UGT looks to partner with clients that show signs of these cultures allowing for a distributed environment across the country – however with a culture that is progressive in developing our people’s careers and making them better people. View our Mission Statement to see more information.

Our culture is led through a progressive leadership structure. We are flat company with an open minded policy towards new ideas, innovation and solutions development. To keep the best and brightest talent, companies are constantly at war to bring them on board and more importantly keep them there. This is not easily done, however with UGT’s development in orginizational optimization, measurement systems, building of effective teams, and process improvement – CULTURE has become an evolution. It adapts and changes as the company grows and expands but with a simplicity that allows all people to succeed and grow with UGT at their own pace.
