Wicklow firm to create 20 Jobs

Friday 21st May 2010
Technology start-up profitsflow.com today announced that it will create 20 full time positions based in its Wicklow HQ over the next five years.

The business was founded in June 2009 by two Irish entrepreneurs, each with ten years experience in sales, software development and systems administration in foreign high tech companies, and is based in Wicklow Enterprise Park.

Commenting on the announcement, Charlie Melia, co-founder of profitsflow.com, said “With all the bad news we hear lately, we are delighted to be able to create a welcome change.  New enterprising and inspirational businesses are what Ireland needs to turn this boat around.  Today marks a major milestone in the evolution of profitsflow.com.  This, and other announcements like it, will provide the stimulus needed to get this country back on its feet and a rapid return to full employment.”

When asked about the core values upon which this innovative Irish company is based, Melia highlighted the harsh reality of starting a business in 2010. “We see ourselves as the catalyst to inspire other budding entrepreneurs. The country cannot rely on foreign direct investment to drag us out of recession.  We give businesses the tools to drive their own sales and their own future.  This drive for self determination is at the very core of what we are all about.”

profitsflow.com provides hosted services for sales & marketing automation, customer service and sales pipeline analysis to SME businesses in the Irish and UK market.  The solution effectively allows customers to gain more sales from existing resources.   Importantly, this hosted cloud app (accessed over the Internet) means the system is funded out of cashflow.  Another key advantage is that access is available to field sales personnel from anywhere with Internet connectivity, meaning true mobility is now a reality.

The firm has had the full support and backing of the Wicklow County Enterprise Board from the outset, through training, mentoring programmes and most recently, grant assistance.
