Datapac opens Business Resource Centre in Wexford Chamber offices to support local business community
Wexford, 15 June 2016 – Datapac today announces the official opening of its new boardroom and training facility, the Datapac Business Resource Centre, within the new offices of the Wexford Chamber on Hill Street, Wexford. The resource centre will offer local businesses the opportunity to avail of the latest technology and communications infrastructure.
Madeleine Quirke, CEO, Wexford Chamber, said: “We’re delighted to announce the official opening of our new offices and the Datapac Business Resource Centre. With the economy continuing to improve, local businesses are buoyant, and are displaying great enthusiasm for meetings, training sessions, and education seminars. However, many smaller organisations do not have the space or budget for their own meeting rooms. This is where the Datapac Business Resource Centre comes in.
“The centre is outfitted with the latest technologies to help businesses to make a great impression on prospective clients, provide their staff with interactive training sessions, or provide an impartial environment for interviews. The provision of these services is Wexford Chamber’s way of giving back to the community. Datapac is a truly innovative company, and a real Wexford success story, and with its support, and the addition of these state-of the-art facilities, Wexford Chamber can continue to punch above its weight.”
Opening-day festivities provided the 240 Chamber members, plus invited guests, the chance to acquaint themselves with the new offices and facilities. The Chamber’s new offices are decorated with artwork from local artist Paddy Lennon, and are sure to impress visitors. The Datapac Business Resource Centre includes invaluable amenities such as a dedicated presentation laptop, high-speed wifi, and a 65” plasma screen to bring presentations to life. As well as this, businesses will be able to make use of conference calling services and HP powered print solution using the latest HP PageWide Technology. Datapac will also offer ongoing IT support to the Chamber. The centre will be available for use by Chamber members and non-members, with members receiving a significant reduction in rental fees.
As well as a tour of the facilities, the opening ceremony also included the unveiling and rededication of a plaque in memory of lives lost on Dr. Furlongs site, Hill Street, in 1798. The plaque was unveiled by the Mayor of Wexford, Councillor Ger Carthy and His Excellency the Ambassador of France Mr Jean-Pierre Thébault.
Karen O’Connor, general manager service delivery, Datapac, said: “Datapac is delighted to play a role in transforming Wexford Chamber’s facilities, and to give something back to the Wexford business community that has been so supportive of Datapac over the past number of years. The value of the resource centre as a collaborative space for smaller organisations cannot be overstated, and it is our hope that Chamber members and non-members alike will make the most of these cutting-edge facilities in the years to come.”
"At Barretstown, we rebuild the lives of children, and their families, affected by childhood cancer and other serious illnesses. We serve 5,000 campers a year and have 1200 volunteers each year. Communication is crucially important and Datapac has helped us to streamline, improve and ensure efficiency."
"Datapac has provided us with a fantastic product and world-class levels of service and support. Whenever people ask me about our experience with Datapac I’m always ready to sing their praises and I would happily recommend their services to any organisation."
"For many years Datapac has been our sole supplier for the maintenance of Personal Computers and Peripherals in Ireland. Through their Service Centres in Wexford and Dublin, Datapac provides excellent support to our businesses throughout the country and consistently meets the SLA targets which we have set. The skill, expertise and experience of their engineers and other technical support personnel are of the highest standard."
“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
