Business intelligence player Jaspersoft says its European HQ in Dublin, which employs 20 people – 95pc of them multilingual – has been responsible for driving a 50pc increase in software sales in the last three years.

The company said sales outside North America now account for more than 32pc of total sales.

The Dublin office was set up in 2008 and customers include Aepona, Corvil, Entando, Jinny Software and Openmind Networks.

Jaspersoft’s business intelligence software is used by millions of executives every day to make faster decisions by bringing them timely, actionable data inside their apps and business processes.

“Having a European HQ has contributed greatly to our growth as Ireland is the perfect gateway for us to serve customers right across Europe,” said Bryan Drexler, vice-president, EMEA at Jaspersoft.

“Our experience with the Irish labour market has been phenomenal. Our clients have been very impressed with the calibre of those we have hired in Ireland, who are both multilingual and technically savvy,” Drexler added.

IDA Ireland chief executive Barry O’Leary said Jaspersoft’s operation in Dublin adds to the established reputation of Ireland as a global centre for software companies.

“The success and accelerated growth of the company’s Irish operations demonstrates Ireland’s ability to host international software companies and provide the highly skilled employees they require for rapid growth,” O’Leary said.
