“Universal Synaptics Corporation has been a member of NCMS for the last eight years. Our experience has been nothing short of phenomenal! Their business model positions them as a leader in technology transitions, technology awareness, and technology use. They are advocates for where our capabilities could be used within the government. I honestly don’t think we’d be doing what we’re doing today without CTMA”

Ken Anderson, Vice President, Universal Synaptics.
