Software company Dundalk Intact to create 180 new jobs
Software company Intact expects to create about 180 new jobs over the next three years.
The jobs will be based in Ireland and the UK.
The Dundalk-headquartered company works primarily with trading, wholesale and distribution companies, providing software solutions, known as ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, which enable businesses manage, automate and scale their operations.
Its software products span entire organizations, spanning finance and accounting, purchasing and supply chain, logistics, marketing, e-commerce, and in-person sales.
The professions being created are in the areas of consulting, business analysts, programmers, application support technicians, administration, marketing and HR.
A number of new positions will be created each year through a graduate recruitment program, Intact Ignite, launched recently in Ireland and the United States.
Intact software is used in Ireland, the UK and parts of Europe, Australia and New Zealand by large and small businesses.
The company currently employs around 200 people, of which around 110 are based in Co Louth.
Intact’s annual revenue of around €17 million has grown over 500% over the past 10 years, with over 60% growth expected in the year to come, as demand for its services grows.
The company is currently in expansion mode, with “significant investments” being made in the UK and Ireland over the coming year.
This week it officially opened its new UK headquarters in Hemel Hempstead, London.
In December, the company also opened a satellite office in Cork, with up to 20 Intact employees to be based there, supporting clients in the South West of the country.
In 2016, Intact acquired Ramtac, one of its UK Value Added Resellers (VAR Partners), which facilitated market expansion there, alongside significant project growth in Ireland, the company said.
“Organic and acquisition-based growth is planned, and will also be accelerated with partnerships, leveraging our intellectual property [intellectual property] globally,” said Intact CEO Justin Lawless.
“Additional recruitment across all of our sites will cover roles ranging from consulting and software development to sales and marketing.”
