Minister Howlin & Wexford Local Development Launch
Innovate’s Network Operations Centre.
Innovate, the Gorey based I.T. and Telecoms company, have kicked off 2013 on the same note they closed 2012 after winning ‘Business of the Year’ at the National Enterprise Awards. Launching Innovate’s newly built, state-of-the-art Network Operations Centre was Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin, T.D., Mr. Pat Rath Chairman, Wexford Local Development Ltd. (WLD Ltd.) and Mr. Brian Kehoe CEO, WLD Ltd.
Innovate’s Network Operations Centre, which is now operated 24 hours per day, 7 x days per week applies advanced system diagnostic tools to monitor, support and report on trends in their business customers’ I.T. and Telecoms environments. Immediate technical support is now deployed preventing interuptions and fixing issues before customers are even aware a potential problem has arisen. As a result, continuity of I.T. and Telecoms service is now maintained at even higher service levels than before.
Not resting on their laurels, Innovate are continuing to bring new ground-breaking I.T. and telecoms products to business customers across Ireland, all available through Innovate’s Cloud Platform. In addition, in the coming weeks, consultancy projects will be completed in Florida, Chicago, London and India.
Mr. Jim Hughes, co-founder of Innovate, continues to see Innovate as an emerging business and wants to continue towards creating substantial technology-lead employment in Wexford. Jim is quoted ‘Today is a shared success for Innovate and Wexford Local Development Ltd who have made this Network Operations Centre happen. We are privileged to be joined by three distinguished guests who have supported Innovate’s continued growth and success’.
Minister Howlin said he is ‘delighted to see cutting edge technology development take root in Wexford and deliver higher proposition products and services across the country to Ireland’s Small and Medium Sized Enterprises’.
WLD Chairman, Mr. Pat Rath, echoed Minister Howlin’s comments ‘Wexford Local Development takes great pride in supporting and then witnessing local business men and business women grow their enterprises and flurish to perform locally, nationally and internationally. We all wish co-founders, Jim Hughes, Enda Cahill and their growing team every success into the future’.
Mr. Jim Hughes thanked Minister Brendan Howlin, Mr. Pat Rath and Mr. Brian Kehoe. ‘Exciting times are ahead, exciting business differentiating products are now available and in the pipeline. We expect that Ireland’s SMEs will experience the difference as they connect into Innovate’s network and apply Innovate’s business differentiating solutions. We will be relying on everyone’s support as we look to expand further into international markets in the very near future, always maintaining our HQ in the sunny South-East.’
