U-Combination TechnologyWHO WE ARE
Over the past 25 years in business, U-Combination Technology has undergone transformations from an IT network equipment importer to an innovator in the K-12 education area as well as an international tourism destination planner. U-COM started helping more than 35 schools in the Greater Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania with their education technology needs. When it comes to education, nothing excites U-COM more than providing the necessary tools to enhance teachers’ lesson plans and provide students with cutting edge information and diverse experiences.
Since 1999, we have won over 270 federal contracts to help K-12 schools in the USA to design, construct and maintain IT infrastructure. We have witnessed digital components in education grow from less than 10% with few computers to over 75% as of 2018. Textbooks in print are exiting classrooms and blended learning with 1:1 ratio of students vs devices are sweeping the nation. We are fortunate in this digital transformation age in which our effort, team work, creativity is directly impacting the quality of education at our client schools. Our role in K-12 education has evolved from IT service provider to the closest education strategic partner.

Cyber, data and campus security
Digital learning unleashes learning potentials but at the same time add to the challenge to protect students’ privacy and identity. We provide CIPA (Child Internet Protection Act) services including related audit, implementation and support as a pre-requisite for Erate funding.
We provide data security services including simultaneous onsite and remote data backup and recovery services. We also provide centralized surveillance and access control services.
Business continuity services
As digital transformation is penetrating our daily lives, we feel restless without WiFi. A 5-minute downtime in the classroom or office can be costly. Our technical teams are trained not to theorize but to recover data at real and reduced downtime. This requires thorough knowledge and training at desktop, remote, and network levels, both on premise and in the cloud. We are repeatedly drilling and trainings. Thus, we have had many successes.
International Tourism Destination Planning
In the past 20 years, U-COM has watched closely the development of the tourism market and kept its focus on the study of human behavior in cross-culture and cross-country travel. In the comparative study of US- Chinese tourism, we have accumulated a vast amount of experience. With the co-operation of Baidu and Google, we have successfully located our target market and concluded the information which is attractive to visitors by summarizing and analyzing statistics in website browsing. Then, we upgraded, managed and promoted website toward our target based on the information. Also, the mainstream social media (Weibo, Facebook and Twitter) are our useful tools to promote travelling destination. Though interacted with the follower, we have gotten much attention from the audience and advanced tourism destination profoundly.
