12 new software jobs for Galway as OnePageCRM secures €575k investment

27 Mar 2013

Cloud-based sales management software company OnePageCRM has raised €575,000 from Enterprise Ireland and other investors. The funding round will enable the company to create 12 new software engineering roles in Galway covering web, mobile technology, digital marketing and customer support.

OnePageCRM is a cloud-based sales management application for SMEs designed to boost sales.

Specifically built for small business, its design makes it effective with minimal data entry and is as easy to use as email.

OnePageCRM is part of the wave of new cloud-based applications for business, where team collaboration and mobile access is at the forefront. Securely hosted on Amazon servers, it uses the same encryption as online banking.

“Larger CRM systems work well at enterprise level, but not in SMEs, whose managers are busy juggling the multiple tasks of running their business,” explained Michael FitzGerald, the founder and CEO of OnePageCRM. “Enterprise CRM is overkill for their needs.”

With an international market, the company has successfully focused on export sales from the beginning.

“The beauty of distributing a sales-related product is that it can be sold globally without the need for complex configuration. Sales in SMEs is the same the world over – engage, build trust and stay organised. OnePageCRM excels at this process. The application, being used by companies around the world, proves its value every day by helping salespeople get things done,” Fitzgerald said.

Welcoming the announcement, Barry Egan, Enterprise Ireland regional director of the west region, said: “OnePageCRM is exactly the type of young and innovative company that Enterprise Ireland is keen to support.

“They have worked with both the local Galway Enterprise Board and now Enterprise Ireland to build an ambitious company with a very strong product offering. We look forward to continue working with them as they grow and develop their business in international markets,” Egan said.
