Cork software company clinches deal with Irish Revenue Commissioners

14 Jun 2013

Cork-based software company Documatics has beaten off local and international competition to secure a tender to provide the legal department at Ireland’s taxation authority, the Revenue Commissioners, with case-management software.

The win is the latest in a string of deals that include the Medical Council of Ireland; the Office of The State Public Defender (California, USA), the Department of Adoption & Child Custody Advocacy (Cook County, Illinois, USA), Department of Roads, (Queensland, Australia), the Department of Water (New South Wales, Australia) and more than 400 high-street and corporate legal clients around the world.

“A significant amount of our new business comes from current client referrals. We believe this comes about through a combination of hard work from our dedicated team here in Documatics, the effort we put into ongoing R&D and the great support of our enthusiastic user base,” Documatics’ general manager David McCarthy explained.

Public sector: open your eyes to the quality of Irish-produced software

Documatics will provide the Revenue Commissioners’ legal department with a comprehensive case-management platform for the management of their active case files.

Features of the system include document management, precedent libraries, brief generator, work flow management, advanced search, risk module, integrated scanning, advanced scheduling/task management, automatic time recording and reporting.

Enterprise Ireland’s Leo McAdams said he hoped the deal secured by Documatics will open government buyers’ eyes to the high quality of software developed locally by indigenous firms.

“Ireland’s indigenous software sector employs over 10,000 people, generates €1.7bn in annual revenue and has delivered double-digit growth in exports for the last three years,” McAdams said.

“Documatics is a great example of an innovative, dynamic software company in this sector. I hope this deal will help draw attention to the high level of technology developed by Irish-owned companies here in Ireland and encourage more government bodies to use world-class software made in Ireland.”
