Datapac wins Wexford CSR Award
Wexford, 1 June 2017 – Datapac, Ireland’s leading ICT solutions provider, has won the Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the Wexford Business Awards 2017. The company received the award in recognition of its commitment to community enhancement and empowerment, and its development of an internal culture of CSR involving all its employees.
Now in its ninth year, the Wexford Business Awards is a county-wide awards programme that recognises innovation, diversity and talent of businesses across all sectors of industry. The CSR category provides businesses with a chance to highlight their efforts to contributing to a better society.
Datapac’s commitment to supporting the local business community, as well as its charity partnerships, skills development and environmental responsibility, impressed judges and convinced them to present the award to the ICT solutions provider.
Karen O’Connor, general manager service delivery, Datapac, said: “At the core of our business strategy is our culture of continuous enhancement at Datapac. It is this same strategic focus which gives us our impetus for making positive contributions to the communities we serve. We carefully select projects where Datapac can engage in the initiative at all levels of our organisation, and to which every team member can contribute.”
“CSR transcends all aspects of our business, from our newest starter to our most experienced employee. Our CSR programme mirrors our corporate values by placing emphasis on partnerships, quality and people development. We will continue to use our resources, time and expertise to enhance and empower our colleagues and local communities.”
"With Datapac’s managed services we have an IT team that has expertise across a very wide range of technologies. Smartsourcing IT resources makes sense for an organisation such as ours, which relies heavily on cutting edge IT to protect and streamline our operations, without the need for a huge cost outlay".
"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."
"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.
