With the widespread availability of computers in most local government workplaces, there is a growing need to better understand how they can be used more effectively. UMG has assisted in resolving issues ranging from such straightforward improvements as networking hardware, to more complex ones, such as helping with institutional wide decisions on major software purchases. Additionally, we can help with the ongoing need to regularly capture new information generated by day-to-day administration activities and digitally update existing or new databases.

UMG uses skilled and knowledgeable IT professionals to provide comprehensive assessment services in all areas of the administration. UMG recommends various technical and organizational techniques for integrating technology into existing administrative practices and processes with minimal threat and disruption.

Additionally, UMG provides advice and support for the integration of existing databases that can settle ongoing disputes between internal departments which are reluctant to share or allow access to their individually developed and maintained databases. UMG has demonstrated the ability to provide seamless access to digital information generated by all departments in an organization without compromising the concern over data generation and protection.

UMG has no allegiances to technology vendors and offers independent advice with options to local governments enabling them to make the most compatible and affordable decision to address their existing and future technology needs.
