Our history

We love what we do! Universal Information Services has provided innovative media contact, news monitoring and PR measurement services since 1908. That's a long time!

Over 100 years in the press clipping service.

The ownership and management, Jim and Todd Murphy, believe that innovation and adaptation are the keys to a successful client relationship.


Universal was built on simple business principles, but with an eye to the future. As one of the first companies to provide digital media formats to end users, Universal remains at the forefront of research and development for media monitoring and PR measurement. Whether it’s your information optimized for desktop and mobile delivery, or analyzing and sharing results from our secure dashboard, Universal is committed to serving our clients of today and the customers of tomorrow. Earning customer trust is an every day effort, not just a campaign. Want to know what else makes us different?


See, measure, share... it's that simple
