Every Business has a story, tell us yours.
Not many local IT consulting firms made it through the 1990's. But, visionary Matt Haney saw an opportunity to reduce his overhead by creating a virtual-IT business model. His baby, Universal Network Solutions, Inc. (UNS), was born in 1997 and since has turned into a multi-million dollar business that continues to grow. UNS offers contract, contract-to-hire and permanent placement staffing solutions, along with everything you need to optimize your network security installation — including training, products and expert consultants.

We learn from our mistakes, especially in business. Give us some words of wisdom.
Make sure to have a clear vision and focus. Communicate your vision to your employees. Every employee should have a clear understanding of their role, their goals and their value. We have not always been good at this and have lost employees and opportunities as a result.
