Auxilion creates 15 jobs to meet demand for cloud-based project support service
27 May 2015 | 0
Auxilion has invested €800,000 in a cloud-based project support for the Irish and overseas markets. The new service has already created 15 jobs and response to growing demand.
“As a result of the economic recovery, project managers are under pressure as organisations gear up to implement projects that had previously been shelved,” said Paul Schmitz, chief sales officer, Auxilion.
“Our service gives project managers back 40% of their time by delivering a lot of the generic tasks associated with overall project delivery such as administration and project support. This frees them up to focus on key elements such as stakeholder management, budget control or managing a wider portfolio of projects at the one time.”
Research published last year by Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre, found that many Irish companies and public sector organisations are struggling to deliver projects effectively, especially in multi-project environments. Dr Orla O’Dwyer of NUI Galway found that 40-60% of IT programmes fail to meet budgets and deadlines, costing business €1 billion annually.
Auxilion, which employs 50 people, is already providing project support services to a number of Irish organisations including Coillte and multinational service providers such as HP and BT through its parent company, IT Alliance Group.
