Vision Net is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The company was founded to provide advanced, cutting edge distance learning and Internet services to rural Montana schools. Today, Vision Net is one of Montana’s leading technology companies delivering a wide range of technical professional services that includes broadband network transport, Internet services, design and management of customized wide area network (WAN) solutions including SD-WAN, end-point and network security products, and more.
Most recently, the company funded and delivered critical broadband fiber infrastructure to Helena and Billings, two cities experiencing—yet struggling to meet—increased Internet demand.
Vision Net is built on rural values of cooperation, accountability and commitment, and boasts a culture that is “Montana-friendly” while inspiring creativity, passion and accountability. The company provides ongoing professional training for employees, competitive benefit packages, and flexible scheduling to help employees achieve a better work-life balance. The recently-renovated Billings office was designed with employee comfort in mind, and Great Falls employees enjoy summer BBQs in the renovated breakrooms and outdoor areas as that office undergoes renovations and upgrades.
Vision Net is highly committed to local communities and organizations. For example, it has been a three-year sponsor of the Special Olympics – not just financially, but with Vision Net employees volunteering at the games. Additionally, the company has long partnered with Billings TrailNet and is the 2020 title sponsor for the annual Ales for Trails fundraiser.
Looking ahead, Vision Net CEO Corey Jensen said the company will continue to innovate to stay ahead of the rapidly-changing IT curve while meeting the needs of employees, customers and communities.
“Knowing we are delivering meaningful, impactful solutions to our customers and our communities is why we’re all here,” Jensen said. “I look forward to Vision Net’s next 25 years and the many relationships, challenges and opportunities that will come along with it.”
