USFI Named Top 20 of Minority-Owned Businesses by Dallas Business Journal
USFI is 100% female-owned, which allows the company to meet the minority requirements often mandated by clients. USFI supports a wide range of clients in various stages of growth, from startup to Fortune 500.
Founded in 1984, USFI is a company that has evolved as clients’ needs have changed and technology has become an essential prerequisite of the advertising business. It is often said that as an ad agency, USFI is Dallas’s best-kept secret, which may prove true as USFI looks to retain customers for life and builds its client base by networking one-on-one through personal relationships. Adding to traditional agency capabilities such as marketing strategy development, creative design and branding architecture, USFI also offers logistics, fulfillment, distribution and supply chain management through its warehouse operation.
Steven Sutor, Director of Information Technology, said, “USFI uses its technology infrastructure to enhance the client’s experience. Making data available real-time to our clients is a valuable part of our offering. We also provide multiple integration points within our systems. This sort of automation creates efficiencies, reduces errors and increases the speed of doing business. In fact, our distribution center can pack an order minutes after the order is placed on our client’s website.”
“An agency’s most important assets are its clients and its employees. We pride ourselves in hiring the very best,” said Nancy Henger, USFI Vice President. “Turnover costs a lot of money and is difficult to recover from, so our philosophy has always been, ‘take good care of the company and the company will take care of you.’” Henger was the second employee hired at USFI, and has been a stakeholder for more than 25 years.
“USFI has a Unique Selling Proposition (USP) that can be summed up in one word,” stated Douglas Ritter, USFI President, “and that word is Desire – Desire for our client’s product and Desire for their services. That’s what we help create.” He added that he had never found a client who didn’t want this Desire for their products and services.
USFI is a Dallas-based marketing and technology company, serving clients in a dozen industries since 1984. As a woman-owned business, USFI is positioned to serve the markets requiring and benefiting from this certification. Services include marketing communication, digital interactive solutions, creative services, print production, and logistics and supply chain management.
