was formed in 1993 when PricewaterhouseCoopers built a team of software
developers to design a data integration system for their global
and domestic clients. The team, including UDICo CEO Adam Greissman,
created the Universal Data Interface, which is now called TierBroker.
This system has been installed in more than 40 PricewaterhouseCoopers

Boston, Hartford Insurance Group and Nomura Securities. UDICo is
now making the TierBroker available for use within smaller companies.
