UplinkSpyder is the vision and passion of Emmanuel and Deanna Rivera. Our passion is evident in all we do, and we strive to share it with you. OK, but what’s with the name… UplinkSpyder?
Well, we think it’s pretty catchy, but…
The word “Uplink” relates to direct communication, which is the core of our business, and is obviously related to the word “online”. We are honored to “link” our knowledge and skills to the needs & goals of your business. The word “Spyder” is both a play on the word Spider (like a Spider that navigates and processes the web) and security (thus SPY.)
Most people remember Uplink or Spyder. We’re cool with that.
