Innovate – the leading managed IT and cloud service provider

INNOVATE, a leading managed IT and cloud service provider, was founded in 2006 by Jim Hughes and Enda Cahill, and in the early days they worked as a team to service customers and grow the business. 16 years later the company now comprises of 42 people and operates from a state-of-the-art office facility in Gorey, supporting companies throughout Ireland to deal with IT challenges and realise the benefits of digital transformation.

INNOVATE, The IT Solutions people, installs, manages, supports and reports on clients’ entire IT and telecommunications environments. INNOVATE delivers secure and resilient IT infrastructure and telecommunication solutions and provides ongoing IT support through our managed IT services across networking, security, cloud infrastructure, communications, and cloud productivity.

At INNOVATE we are committed to customers and provide personalised services, enabling them to concentrate on core business functions, saving time and money – now and in the future.

INNOVATE’s core specialism in security, cloud services, networks, cloud telephony, and video collaboration have come to the fore over the past eighteen months as customers struggled to deal with the rapid shift to remote working and fundamental changes to business operations. We are helping our customers navigate the journey to the new workplace, making sure that they can service their clients without disruption.

We offer our customers a fixed monthly investment which frees up capital and allows them to plan effectively. We work with our clients to secure and optimise their IT environment, and most importantly we proactively monitor and report, giving them peace of mind knowing issues will be fixed before they know it.

We work with companies from many different sectors, from accountancy firms to meat processing plants. Our experience working with well-known high street companies such as Life Style Sports and McCauley Health and Beauty has led to significant Retail wins totalling €1.5m over the past 12 months. Growth remains a key focus for us as we move in 2022 and we are investing in key roles to support this. We would encourage people living in the local area to have a look at our careers page as we expand the team.

To respond to changing customer needs we introduced INNOVATE Skillsource early last year. INNOVATE Skillsource is our talent acquisition offering for companies who are struggling with the mounting IT challenges presented by digitalisation and the impact of Covid-19. INNOVATE Skillsource provides a range of IT talent recruitment and contracting services for short and long-term projects.

Skillsource leverages INNOVATE’s extensive IT knowledge and expertise to recruit skilled IT contractors, create and manage teams for IT projects, and offer both on and off-site outsourcing services to clients.
