S3 is an Austin, Texas-based company[1] that provides back office solutions for outsourcing, health care, and financial services.[2] Templatized and customizable – these solutions include asset management and automated order-to-cash for outsourcing to more critical processes like billing for outsourcers and best execution for financial services.

S3 aims to bring together data from a variety of sources to solve time-sensitive business crises.

The company tag line is "Challenge Everything" which, according to the company, expresses an "attitudinal" approach to how the team envisions the S3 office operating each day.


S3 was founded in 2002 to help large corporate IT with the demand for custom automation solutions and analysis. S3 invented TeraMatch[3], a hybrid algorithmic and rules-based matching engine that today finds data errors in over three billion transactions daily. S3 is a veteran-owned small business.

Products and Services

S3 cleans up existing data and creates a single view into it to deliver critical information. But, according to the company, the real value to customers is the solutions built on top of that data, which are reports and work flow to automate business processes. These are made available on a web portal. S3 offers fully hosted solutions from multiple data centers across the United States.

S3 provides a custom built, turn-key solution. Since S3 is a hosted and fully managed environment, there's no additional cost to clients for hardware, software, or data center space.
