Meet the Champ!
UVOCORP is now 15 years old! In order to commemorate the date, we are releasing a special issue of the UVOWORLD, among other things. Without further ado, let’s dive into the story of us!
In the beginning was the idea. This idea, born from fun, friendly chit-chat, was... “Man, we must do something! We don’t know what, but we’ve got to do something ASAP!” So one person took out his savings, another came up with an idea, third jumbled together a rough website, and fourth wrote the very 1st paper... That’s how we started UVO some 15 years ago. We were in our mid-twenties and had just a bit of experience doing this and that, very little money for a start-up, and only a rather vague idea about freelance writing… but we were burning to make an impact, and we had friends!
It seems incredible what a bunch of young people with ambition were able to achieve by putting their efforts together for a common goal, and even more astonishing how much it took to get UVO where it is today. What was once a hobby turned into a lifelong passion. In going from a small group of enthusiasts to becoming one of the leading employers in freelance writing, we’ve persevered through several business cycles and the ups and downs of stiff competition, and are now entering our maturity. We’ve evolved and moved from merely meeting expectations to developing new products, growing our international writer base, building ourselves up, and optimizing to the best of our ability.
Today, we celebrate these 15 years as a community of more than three thousand people in dozens of countries across the globe. We’re happy to have been the pioneers in this business, having launched and successfully developed new, unmatched services aimed at the improvement of the quality of our product and the professional skills of our writers. We’ve also diversified, launching freelance and in-house office projects, creating strong, professional mentoring and editing departments, and writing thousands of pages of guidelines and other learning materials. Today, we serve an international community of students from all around the world, including in the US, the EU, Canada and UAE. We provide jobs to people on every continent, with a special focus on Africa, Europe and Asia.
Emerging global trends urged us to look at ourselves from a different perspective. Our vision has changed, and we now place greater emphasis on the understanding and anticipation of our clients’ expectations. In practice, this means proposing better and more handy services, improving communication between customers, writers, and our support team, and focusing on meeting the expectations of clients with different backgrounds. It’s a complex task and a complicated goal to change and be willing to be changed, but we’re determined to successfully utilize the precious experience we’ve gained over the course of these 15 years to make an impact... together!
