Our story

Our Story

We began in 1997 as 3SG, dedicated to providing an innovative solution for government and private industry in the document lifecycle space. Over time this mission footprint expanded as the needs of public and private organizations dramatically evolved into the digital age. As the need for single-source solutions across the organizations increased due to regulatory and efficiency pressures, 3SG also evolved.

 In 2018 we changed our name to 3SG+, recognizing the growth and expansion of capabilities over the previous two decades, and putting our service approach into simple words: "That's the Plus."

  • Hyland OnBase Enterprise Content Management

Our values

Our Scope

3SG+ is focused on Organizational Efficiency and Organizational Transformation. Our common thread is optimizing the flow of information inside your organization. This covers a lot of ground: Your network hardware and configuration, your ECM solutions, and your permitting and regulatory processes.  Permanent staffing as well as one-time or project-based needs are also major considerations when it comes to organizational efficiency.

We also offer front-end assessments regarding efficiencies, licensing allocations, pre-upgrade readiness and other factors, so you have a plan before you make any changes. And when off-the-shelf isn't the best fit, we offer app customization to tailor your tools to your actual process.

3SG+is a certified reseller and systems integrator of both Hyland Onbase ECM and the Accela Civic Platform. And of course, we still provide physical document imaging, storage and secure destruction of physical documents, specializing in fragile, high-value and unusual sizes. Our current record is a 28' blueprint sheet (Not a typo - 28 feet, not inches).
