Founded in 1976, we are honored to now be working with over 200 utilities throughout North America & the Caribbean.

NorthStar Utilities Solutions is the original business unit of Harris Computer Systems.  As a result of continued growth, Harris moved to a divisional structure in 2004. Today, Harris employs 1,200 industry professionals in 38 offices throughout North America.

In 1996, Harris was purchased by Constellation Software Incorporated (CSI).  CSI is an international provider of market-leading software and services, both in the public and private sectors.
