Munsys was founded in 1993 to assist utilities and government with the management of infrastructure assets.
Through extensive research and development the Munsys® product family was developed, offering a comprehensive
database driven spatial solution, tailored specifically to the needs of utilities and government. The Munsys® products
have been implemented worldwide at numerous organizations since 1997. Originally based in Australia and South
Africa, when Munsys considered expansion of its operations into the North American market we retained Glenn
Matthews and his team to guide us through the complexities of U.S. immigration law. Glenn assisted with the
organization of our U.S. subsidiary and the transfer of our key personnel from South Africa to our new U.S. office in
Florida. Glenn’s team provided timely and critical advice respecting the L-1 intra-company transferee visa category.
They successfully battled the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on our behalf when issues did arise with our
cases. We were ultimately able to transition key executive personnel and their family members from L-1 to Green
Card status. Throughout the entire immigration process we have found Matthews Global to provide professional,
responsive, and reasonably priced immigration legal advice. We would recommend their services to any South African
company seeking to expand operations into the United States.
