Further expansion and 180 new jobs for Irish software company

  • Significant investment is being made in corporate expansion of Intact business in the UK and Ireland in the coming year, increasing headcount by over 180 over the next three years.

    The company currently employs 184 people. New recruitment will facilitate enhanced client service on the ground, locally, as well as European and global growth planning. 

    A number of these roles each year will be via a new graduate recruitment programme, Intact Ignite, launched recently and operating in both territories.

    In December 2021, the company opened a satellite office in Cork, with up to 20 Intact staff to be based there, supporting clients in the south west.

    In 2016 the software company acquired Ramtac, one of its UK VAR partners, (value added resellers), which has facilitated expansion in the neighbouring market, alongside significant project growth on the island of Ireland.

    CEO, Justin Lawless, says that dramatic consistent growth in the past ten years has established a firm base from which to roll-out the unique Intact ERP offering further, leveraging the company’s intellectual property in both domestic and global markets.

    Intact works largely with merchant, wholesale and distribution businesses, providing perfect-fit business software and technology solutions, known as ERP systems (enterprise resource planning), that enable businesses to optimally manage, automate and scale their operations.
