The Solera Way
Solera's uncommon culture is based on three simple principles: Think 80/20 (Focus), Act 30/30 (Efficiency), and Live 90/10 (Accountability).

The principles, drills, and values associated with the Solera Way have been fundamental to Solera's success and our ability to grow, continuously change, and innovate.
