Why choose UTS?

UTS provides custom software development services in addition to off-the-shelf software products, including desktop and web applications. Customers choose UTS to develop their custom software applications for a number of reasons:

Ability to develop a wide variety of applications - from engineering automation to sales configurators to computerized design guides and streamlined workflow.
UTS listens well, tuning in to understand the real needs of its customers.
Creativity and innovation
Rapid development schedule - days and weeks rather than months and years.
A proven development process that cuts down on development and technology risks.
Handling projects that are challenging and difficult for others to undertake.
Successful track record.
Lower cost.
Fixed price contracts that are completed on time.
Many companies have existing software based on old technology and they need it updated. UTS is well-versed in adding value to such projects - upgrading features and functionality while modernizing.

Product Development Process

UTS has perfected a phased development process that minimizes cost and development risk:

1. A telephone discussion to get acquainted
2. Web-based demonstration of successfully completed projects (with client permission)
3. In-person visit
4. A proof of concept prototype (free-of-charge), consisting of our basic understanding, thoughts and ideas on the project
5. A pilot project (at a fixed price), consisting of the overall system design and getting a portion of it working, which can typically be completed in two to six weeks. UTS will give you a schedule for completing the full project and a fixed price quotation at the end of the pilot project
6. Full project development and implementation

Customers get what they are looking for in a creative, timely and cost effective manner.

Chemical engineering design manual for DuPont - online text and graphics, fully computerized, containing over 200 mathematical models and linking to thermo physical properties of over 1700 compounds
Multi-year project for a major automotive company for the development of an expert system to design an automotive transmission system
Special project for the US Army
Fully integrated web-based ERP system developed for a major consumer buying club, tying together over 100 remote locations with the home office, including a complete work flow system and custom developed CRM
Web-based product sales configurator for the marketing department of a gear box manufacturing company

Preliminary design of plastic gears - a web-based design tool developed as a joint project for two companies
Custom-developed, extensive web-based surveys taken by thousands of US government employees
Engineering automation system using pro/Engineer and a UTS-developed knowledge base. This system automatically builds 3-D models of parts and creates 2-D drawings. What used to take 25 hours in pro/E can now be done in less than one hour — and is done right every time

In addition to the software described above, UTS can custom-build software using one or more of the following technologies:

Mathematical modeling using TK Solver
Visual Basic.NET
SQL Server and other databases
ASP.NET
eLearning course development using UTS Learning Center
Custom developed Risk Assessment System
Rule based work flow engine from UTS
