Irish e-commerce technology company Magico is hiring a dozen new employees in sales, support and software development in Ennis, Co Clare.
The company is pursuing further growth as part of a €500,000 research and development project around a technologically advanced big data analytics system it has developed called Magico DARE.
The initiative is supported with R&D funding from Enterprise Ireland. As well as strong success to date in Ireland, Magico is now actively targeting the UK market. Established in 2000, the company currently employs 12 staff in analytics and software development.
A cloud-based platform for omnichannel retail, Magico gives retailers a complete window into their performance and operations by integrating with back office technologies.
“Magico is an impressive Irish company which has developed a core expertise in e-commerce and big data analytics, which it is applying directly to the commercial requirements of its clients,” says Giles O’Neill, Enterprise Ireland manager of education, business and consumer services.
“Research into the UK market provided Magico with the confidence that their solution was in demand from target customers. Finding the right market expertise to help to develop the proposition and support it in the UK was also a priority. Enterprise Ireland will continue to support Magico’s development plans and strategy to win additional business in the UK.”
“Technology choices are important, but more important are the tasks of maximising revenue and profitability,” says Paul Montwill, MD of Magico. “For many organisations, their ambition to grow through multiple channels is undermined because they have no single view of inventory or orders across multiple locations and devices.
“Magico provides an ‘omnichannel’ approach with an integral intelligence engine which aids better decision-making. In turn, this lays the ground for greater scalability and rapid growth.”
