In a bid to expand its reach in North Bengal and diversify its portfolio

across different market verticals, Siliguri-based Universal Computers is now

concentrating on building up its base strongly in the networking solutions

front, besides focusing on surveillance products.

Speaking about the diversification plans of the company, Debojyoti Gupta,

CEO, Universal Computers said, “Already, we are strong in the corporate billing

front. 60 percent of the total business is generated by corporate clients. In

Siliguri, the market is relatively small and saturated. Therefore, we are

diversifing into the surveillance and networking solutions front.”

In the last FY, the company bagged major deals in government projects in

Sikkim, in the surveillance solutions space, linking different departments with

IP cameras. In these projects, Universal is deploying Samsung and Axis products



On the wireless networking front, Universal is mainly focussing on

deployments in hotels and government verticals using Cisco and Linksys products.

The company has also designed ERP solutions and LAN and domain set-up


Since its inception, Universal has always been concentrating on the computer

training front. Recently, the company has renovated its computer education

institute, Ucoms Computer Academy, with specialized and structured laboratory

facilities meant for training students on hardware, assembling, chip and

peripheral repairing and animation.

Signalling plans for expansion beyond Siliguri, Gupta emphasized, “This year,

we will be opening three branch offices in Gangtok (Sikkim), Cooch Behar and

Malda Town. Operating the entire north Bengal chain has become cumbersome and

thus I am thinking of opening offices in these areas.”
