About UDC

Company Philosophy

Our number one criterion for the success of any project is customer satisfaction. Above all, we strive to deliver and see to it that our clients and partners are successful. We operate on building trust; we work very hard at earning the trust of our clients and we zealously work to protect that trust at all times.

UDC is a privately held company with our entire focus on the success of our customer and providing reasonably priced services for the full journey of your project or program. Our company focus is also entirely on the services we provide. We will not be selling you products downstream in your project... and this means our success is based entirely on your success.

History

UDC was founded on May 5th, 2005 by Rachel Benson and Hamid Akhavan. Rachel Benson took charge of the financial and administrative aspects of this new company, while Hamid Akhavan took charge of the technical and operational aspects of the company. UDC initially purchased the Field Operations unit and equipment from Analytical Surveys Inc. and began performing field services for utilities.

UDC has successfully grown over the years to be the largest product-independent provider of services in relation to spatially-based asset management and system integration. Our service offerings now include a full range of services that match the project and program lifecycle needs of our utility customers.

Our experience now encompasses many of the most complex electric and gas project assignments in the industry. Many of these projects have pioneered new territory and we have gained extensive industry knowledge and understanding from peer utility investments that we can bring to your project.

Management Team

UDC’s management team is actively engaged with every customer and their projects. Our focus is on quality of service, fulfillment of customer goals and support of customer success. We have added to our team the technical and executive leadership that have designed and implemented solutions for many leading edge utility projects. Collectively offering over 200+ years of experience, UDC’s executive management group are key players in the industry holding previous roles in Convergent Group, IBM, Nasa, Hughes, HP, KEMA, ASI, Geo IT, PWC, and Enspiria Solutions. UDC continues to successfully recruit the highest quality talent in the industry building a top performing, project tested team with capabilities to support your full utility project and program lifecycle.
