Cork IT company Paradyn has announced a €150,000 deal for the design and implementation of a full system upgrade for process engineering firm, Flow Technology.
Paradyn’s solution provides high-speed broadband, increased reliability and security. It also enables flexible mobile working for Flow Technology’s employees.
Established in 1978, the privately-owned process engineering company based in Charleville, designs, manufactures and installs specialist equipment and systems for the manufacturing sector across the biopharma, pharmaceutical, beverage, food and dairy industries.
Flow Technology has experienced significant growth over the last five years, with staff numbers increasing from 39 to 63 during this time. Annual turnover has also grown almost 10% year-on-year since 2013.
Earlier this year, in response to increased customer demand, Flow Technology made a significant investment in a second fabrication building that increases its capacity by 250% with two five-tonne overhead cranes giving it the capacity to manage multiple concurrent projects.
Cillian McCarthy, CEO, Paradyn said: “The value of this integrated solution for Flow Technology is that our engineers can see all elements of Flow Technology’s IT, security, communications and network infrastructure. This means fast resolution times — 90% of faults get fixed during the first-call, significantly less time spent managing IT and a higher return on Flow Technology’s investment on IT and communications systems.”
Kevin Whooley, managing director, Flow Technology said: “Following the tendering process, we knew that Paradyn was the right fit for us as they were capable of manage the entire setup from desktops, to servers to phones to connectivity. The new solution has provided us with an infrastructure that enables mobile working, improves IT reliability and maintains the highest level of security which improves our business performance.
