Dublin firm Mobile PC Monitor to create 11 new jobs as international expansion begins

17 Oct 2012

Mobile PC Monitor, a Dublin-headquartered company headed by a software entrepreneur, is to create 11 new jobs after signing an agreement with Dutch company Secom to distribute its software in the Netherlands. The value of the deal is expected to be worth €1.5m.

The software enables IT managers and business managers to monitor the status of PCs on a company network via any iOS, Android, or Windows Phone and control critical servers and applications anywhere, any time.

Mobile PC Monitor sales director John Corrigan told Siliconrepublic.com the company has just developed a new app for Windows 8.

He said the software currently has 100,000 users, including 100 enterprises.

“It is an innovative solution for monitoring and managing your IT infrastructure using a securely encrypted mobile app that gives you total control of your critical servers and applications from anywhere, any time.

“It requires an agent installation on each PC and you can monitor everything from CPU temperature and usage to network status to RAM usage. You can execute commands in the terminal, run Windows update, restart/shutdown/suspend/hibernate your machine, quit processes, and tons more. Mobile apps are available for iPhone, iPad, Android tablets, Windows Phone and Windows 8.

“We have just signed an agreement with a Dutch company, Secom, to distribute our software in the Netherlands through its network of more than 700 resellers. The value of the deal is expected to be worth €1.5m and will lead to the creation of at least 11 jobs.”

Corrigan said the deal with Secom heralds the first stage of the company’s international expansion.

“Our founder, Marius Mihalec, has been living in Ireland a number of years and has more than 15 years of experience in technology development.”

Corrigan added that the company is currently raising its first round of venture capital funding and has been working with Enterprise Ireland since early this year to develop its international market.
