Their team of dedicated and proven business experts provide executives and entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to drive revenue, improve operational efficiency, and establish strategies that lead to success. “When the opportunity arose to have General Informatics be a part of HAILO, we were immediately thrilled. It has been incredible seeing what they are doing here in Hoover and the Greater Birmingham Area. I am thankful that HAILO can have a part in their growth,” mentions Selena Harrison, CEO of HAILO Ventures. 

Since its opening in June, General Informatics has been offering their unique brand of IT services and the market is responding! “General Informatics services and solutions are unmatched. The team here at GI makes every customer a priority and I am looking forward to helping new customers in Alabama become more successful with our technology offerings,” says Ches Allen, General Manager for the Alabama Market.
