Our History, Values & Leadership
Universal Software Solutions was founded on January 1st 2000 in response to a demand in the market for an automated data management solution.
The goal was to provide operational efficiencies in a barrier-free environment with flexibility and scalability. Universal prides itself on creating products built on a nimble and sophisticated database structure that allows providers in the post-acute healthcare market to provide exemplary patient care with lean resources.
Universal has been a privately held company with consistent leadership & product visionaries since inception. After nearly twenty years of providing a dependable solution to America’s top post acute-care healthcare providers, the desire and focused vision of Universal ensures another twenty.
The Universal Team is comprised of unique and talented software professionals specializing in product engineering, software education, and customer service based in Davison, Michigan; all of whom go above and beyond for clients every day. With Universal, it’s personal.
