Today’s utility faces a daunting array of issues: outdated and tedious manual processes, mountains of paperwork, missed payments and increasing delinquent accounts, rising labor costs and turnover, non-revenue water, cybersecurity concerns—the list seems to grow each day…
What if there was a company who could help you address each of these pain points, and more? What if tasks that once took days to complete can now take minutes—even seconds? What if you could reduce costs and streamline operations while actually expanding your capabilities? What if you had a partner to maximize your potential as a utility and better-steward your limited resources to serve your community?
That’s where United Systems comes in.
In 1977, United Systems embarked on the challenge of developing technology to help simplify operations for utilities, government, and business in general. Today, our technology expertise not only includes modern utility billing software, but also managed services, cybersecurity and compliance, process automation, mobile field service, a customer web portal—even smart meter canopies that span entire communities.
We are strategically located in the heart of the U.S. From here, we serve more than one thousand utilities, covering over 40% of the country. Our software calculates over 15 million utility statements annually, and our average ticket response time is less than an hour!
