Utah’s Top Employers:  Solutionreach

Posted on Dec 01, 2013 by Solutionreach

In 2000, Solutionreach burst onto the scene as one of the first ever cloud-based software companies.  In its infancy, they began as the pioneer for text and email-based patient messaging.  Thirteen years later, Solutionreach remains on the forefront of technology. Now a full SaaS platform, the service provides healthcare professionals with patient engagement and communication solutions, including integrated tools for practice marketing and patient education.

Since the end of 2012, the number of Solutionreach employees has nearly doubled, and they show no sign of slowing down. The company is devoted to recruiting extremely bright, unique, enthusiastic personalities that contribute to the tightly knit culture.

The company’s success has come through a dedication to developing innovative technology, which gives employees the uncommon opportunity to do more than work – they get to build. “Not every idea pans out, but when we empower employees to run with their ideas we are cultivating innovation”, says Jim Higgins, Founder and CEO of Solutionreach. “Having the passion is what brought them here, but the freedom to tap into that passion is what keeps them here – and it’s also what makes us successful.”

While Solutionreach is continually setting itself apart in the fast-paced high tech and healthcare industries, they are also setting a new standard for Utah businesses. The company possesses a unique amount of camaraderie and combined dedication to making a difference for each other, their customers, and their community. For example, Solutionaries banded together in month long fundraising events to support CURE Childhood Cancer, and then donned bright green running shirts to participate in their “SolutionRun”. With Solutionreach matching the amount of money raised by employees and donating generously per mile, they contributed more than $23,000 to the charity.

Inside the office, the atmosphere is as positive as the company’s culture. The colorful walls, strategically placed candy jars, and modern décor is surrounded by big windows overlooking some of Utah’s most beautiful mountain views. The ambiance, however, is just a small part of the office appeal.  It’s difficult to mistake the feeling of enthusiasm that permeates the air – unless it’s Tuesday morning, in which case the air is full of the smell of fresh bagels and coffee. Employees can combat the carbs in the fully equipped on-site gym, or with a cardio heavy game of foosball, basketball, pingpong, or pool. The oversized dining and recreation area even hosts couches and beanbags in case Solutionaries need to take a load off or fire up the Xbox on one of the big screens.

As for tangible perks, employees are provided with excellent benefit packages sporting high quality insurance options, plenty of paid time off, and 401(K) and Charitable Donation matching programs.

“I’m not sure how many people jump out of bed in the morning excited to come to work…but we do”, says Karmen Sanford, HR Manager for Solutionreach. “If someone has to go to work, there’s nowhere they’d rather be than Solutionreach.”
