Buy4Now inks €0.5m international contract

16 Jul 2010

Irish technology firm Buy4Now has signed a contract worth half a million with US supermarket chain Roches Bros to provide a new e-grocery shopping site.

Buy4Now Technology Group will build and deploy Irish software services to the grocers, which will serve as an online shopping site for its customers from the 18 supermarkets across the greater Boston area.

With this €500,000 software contract, the Buy4Now-created e-commerce site for Roches Bros will include hosting of the software suite, order fulfilment and helpdesk software.

The contract follows Buy4Now’s earlier announcement of an export drive with an emphasis on R&D through 20 new jobs that will be created over the next two years.

“Having a robust offer with a strong track record in the e-grocery space proved significant in winning this international contract for our software services and proves that we as an Irish company have the products and services to compete in the international market,” said Michael Veale, CEO, Buy4Now Technology Group.

Buy4Now Technology Group’s clients include Arnotts, Woodies, Elverys, RTE, DID and 3. The firm recently won the contract to re-develop a high-end site for Carphone Warehouse.
