6 May 2016 | 0
Agile Networks has reported overall revenue of €9.2 million mark for 2015, a 25% improvement over the previous year.
Agile designs, builds and supports IT networks across 1,600 sites and supports 1.8 million end users. It has over 100 major customers, including 16 of the top 25 Internet Service Providers in Ireland. The company employs 18 at its headquarters in Blanchardstown, Dublin.
Managing director Darragh Richardson (pictured) said: “This impressive growth was mainly driven by demand for design, build, and support services which grew by 42% over the previous year. We offer our customers a unique ‘focal engineer’ model which is a significant move away from the traditional ‘break/fix’ model of support. This model offers a much more proactive managed service and it is this shift that appeals to our customers.”
The company grew its customer base by 38% in 2015, with new contract wins included Dublin City University. That particular project saw Agile Networks update the university’s 15-year-old IT infrastructure, for their 16,000 students and 1,600 staff members. Other contract wins included the National University of Ireland Maynooth, the Aviva Stadium in Ballsbridge, the Galway Clinic, Inex and Hibernia Atlantic.
The year also saw the company achieve diamond partner status with Extreme Networks, and gold partner status with Palo Alto and F5 Networks. Agile Networks also became one of only five companies in the high-tech sector to achieve continuous professional development (CPD) accreditation from Engineers Ireland.
The multi-award winning company has already built up an impressive trophy cabinet of awards and they have won many industry accolades. In 2015, Agile Networks were named the 7th fastest growing company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards. Darragh Richardson was also a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards in 2015.
