September 28, 2017 - Published in Voyage Dallas - Today we’d like to introduce you to Barry Kaplan.
Thank you for taking the time to share your story with us, Barry. Let’s start at the beginning. Can you explain a little bit about your journey with UniFocus?
I am what we in the company refer to as a “boomerang,” meaning that I worked for UniFocus for a while, left for a time, and then came back. About 10 percent of the company has this designation. It is a testament to the people, and the quality of the software that is delivered to our clients, that employees keep coming back. In fact, when I left in 2000, I always had a sense that I would return.
- Everyone here is very nice and very friendly. There is such a strong sense of community, and community pride here that is stronger than in other places we have lived.
- The convenience is key. We live in Flower Mound, which is master-planned like most suburbs of Dallas. Within a mile of where we live is a shopping area, a grocery store, restaurants, dentist, bank, etc. And because of the way the cities are laid out, we don’t have to leave Flower Mound to get anything we need. Back east, it took me 75 minutes to get to the airport. Now, I am less than 20 minutes door-to-door. For someone who travels about once a month, this is a big deal.
- The weather is spectacular. We don’t have to shovel snow anymore! My wife and I always say that throughout the year there are more perfect weather days here than in most other places we have lived.
