User Friendly Consulting, Inc. (UFC) was founded in 1990 by Joseph Hill. Its initial focus was on the development of database applications for the telecommunications industry. In the mid-1990's, Joe expanded the business by providing onsite technical support for the rapidly growing personal computer market for large corporations. Later in that decade, the company began managing a large FileNet enterprise content management system. This account led to further growth in this segment of the business and in 1999 UFC becoming a FileNet reseller. The business further expanded with the addition of Quillix Web Capture, and the focus of the company moved to the document capture and forms processing space. This has become the company's primary focus since that time. The product line expanded with the addition of ABBYY USA in the mid-2000's.
User Friendly Consulting's mission is to provide world-class document management software and services to ensure success for our customers. Our positive employee environment encourages imagination and nurturing of new ideas.
What We Do At a Glance
UFC®, Inc. is a consulting, integration, and solutions firm preferred by clients in various industries including the Oil and Gas Industry for our quality, innovation, and integration expertise. UFC provides capture, enterprise content management software, support, and integration services based on a flexible architecture and common set of applications for collecting, classifying, retaining, migrating, securing, and accessing information – all at the lowest cost of ownership. Unlike vendors that deliver generalized ECM products with centralized or consolidated architectures, or support few applications and data types, UFC delivers the most comprehensive solution which is specifically tailored to the unique requirements of our customers. The distributed nature of the solution along with UFC's extensive expertise and unique approach makes it ideal for organizations with remote offices that have limited storage space and minimal IT infrastructure or technical support. Remote locations realize significant improvement in operational efficiencies, improved collaboration, and a reduction in storage costs - without sacrificing centralized control or visibility of information. From capturing personnel information such as human resource forms to capturing and storing engineering drawings and correspondence, UFC provides organizations with the ability to reduce paper transaction costs while increasing their data processing efficiencies.
