Doug Sperr, USGN founder, president and CEO explains the value of "US" in the name "USGN" this way: "Our unique hosted application development platform is recognized for the value it brings to the "US" in today's businesses: the teams of architects, engineers, contractors... they are the teams who make "US" who we are! Today, companies need to write their own collaborative project management applications based on their company's best practices without the enormous time and expense involved in programming code or software development. That's what sets us apart from other project management solutions and why our customers believe so strongly that they can leverage this technology to model company processes. The idea of 'industry best practices' or 'pre-programmed' solutions is outmoded. Doing business according to a company's unique and specific DNA is the way to go today."
