Business search engine CashIQ to expand, creating 45 jobs

9 May 2012

Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation today announced the creation of 45 new jobs in Irish technology company CashIQ, as the company plans to expand into overseas markets.

CashIQ, a free and instant business search engine, will more than triple its workforce over the next three years as it expands into foreign markets. This expansion will generate 45 new jobs in research, IT, and business development.

“If we are to create the jobs we so badly need, we must drive a powerful engine of indigenous business,” said Minister Richard Bruton, TD, commenting on the announcement. “We have seen over recent months the importance of FDI to our economy – but it is crucial that we also build a base of dynamic indigenous companies who can compete better in foreign markets and create more jobs.”

CashIQ is a powerful business search engine that offers free access to information covering all registered companies in Ireland and the UK, including financial analysis, company status, age and group structure, business activity, products and services, contact details, auditors, registered address, bankers, commercial legal judgements, shareholders, and current and past directors.

The new Irish company has been two years in development, supported by Enterprise Ireland, and has achieved private investment in the region of €500,000. It currently provides details for more than 8m companies and 15m directors and business owners in both Ireland and the UK, but now plans to expand its coverage to include major international markets, giving exporters a better understanding of who they are dealing with, providing sales and marketing leads, as well as a basic level of guidance in terms of financial status.
