UniverseIT’s Big Bang

UniverseIT is a Houston-based IT firm that started in the summer of 2017 as a different company entirely, Lonestar CIO. Lonestar was founded by our president and CEO, Joe Eldridge to continue his legacy of providing exceptional CIO and CTO services to clients in Texas. After performing a software selection process for the school management solution for the academy division of one of his clients, he chose Classe365. A relationship was formed that day that transformed Lonestar and redirected the primary business of the company. Lonestar became Classe365’s premier partner in the United States and pivoted to providing education technology services and selling, implementing, and supporting the world-class Classe365 solution.

Soon after, Joe partnered with Erica Blair Weldon, a former colleague, to evolve the business in a new direction, and UniverseIT was formed. All of Lonestar’s previous assets and lines of business were merged into the new moniker and UniverseIT set off into a new frontier. Now, we provide IT solutions to educational institutions and non-educational organizations alike to take them beyond the cloud.
