31 Jan 2017417 Shares

A surge in business has led to a 30pc rise in revenues for Zinopy and the need to dramatically increase its headcount. With that, 50 new jobs are on the way.

Crediting its partnership with Sungard AS, which allows clients access to its data centres, Zinopy is optimistic for the future.

Zinopy has seen a significant increase in uptake of its IT security and workspace virtualisation services, growing its revenue by 30pc in the past 12 months and increasing its customer base.

With that, the Dublin-based company is planning to double its workforce over the next two years, creating 50 new positions.

Zinopy’s client list includes Ryanair, National College of Ireland and KBC Bank Ireland, with the need for consistent IT support being satisfied by its partnership with Sungard AS.

John Ryan, CEO of Zinopy, said the partnership has been “critical” to his company’s success, with the support allowing for “growth that will see Zinopy double in size”.

“Zinopy is yet another example of Ireland’s thriving technology industry,” said Carmel Owens, GM of Sungard AS Ireland. “The success of these modern, digitally focused organisations rests on their ability to remain available to customers, free from disruptions.”

Last week, a series of jobs announcements in the tech and science industries saw more than 300 new positions announced across the island of Ireland, with Belfast, Dundalk and Shannon the main beneficiaries.

Foe example, synthetic diamond maker Element Six is to create 100 new jobs in Shannon as part of a planned €7m expansion. The investment will see employment levels double to 550 since the implementation of a restructuring plan in 2009, when the company faced closure.

Financial services business FinTrU is creating 160 new jobs in Belfast over the next five years, supplementing an already significant workforce with added professionals and graduates.

Northern Irish pharma group Almac has announced plans to build a new facility in Dundalk, Co Louth, which will result in the creation of 100 jobs in the first two years.

Other announcements included 50 jobs at Evo Payments, 32 new roles at Pure Telecom and 46 positions announced at Cirdan Imaging.
