Conventional wisdom dictates that business people and techies clash, often because of a lack of quality communication. Unique Solutions of Advanced Technologies is growing its business rapidly by remedying that dynamic.
The Royal Oak-based business specializes in providing IT solutions to businesses. It's niche is finding ways to bridge the communication divide between its customers (businesses) and its staff (techies).
"They don't talk to each other in the same language," says Sreedhar Kaluva, president of Unique Solutions of Advanced Technologies
, who has more than 20 years experience working as an IT consultant. "I serve as the catalyst between the two entities."
That business model has allowed the 6-year-old company to double, not only its revenue but workforce, over the last year. The increases are due to a growing customer base that includes companies from a broad range of industries, including publishing, transportation and manufacturing.
Unique Solutions of Advanced Technologies now employs 10 people and is looking at adding interns this year. Kaluva expects to keep hiring this yea to make sure his company can keep up with the demand for its services.
"I am very optimistic that 2012 is going to be much more positive than even 2011," Kaluva says.
