Sunday Independent Deal Release ImageManaged IT and cloud service provider Innovate has announced new business worth a combined €2.7m as it aims to double its revenue over the next three years.

The company has won contracts with Sam McCauley Chemists, the Irish Greyhound Board, Rosderra Irish Meats and industrial laboratory specialists Mason Technology.

Innovate also provides IT solutions across networking, security, unified communications and cloud infrastructure as well as managed SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network) service to Irish businesses.

Sam McCauley Chemists is the largest Irish-owned pharmacy group. It has 32 stores and employs 600 people across Ireland. It recently announced a €50m acquisition programme that will double the size of its business over the next three years.

In order to achieve that scale efficiently, the company is investing in an innovative end-to-end IT infrastructure using cloud technology and partnering with both Innovate and SCT, a leading retail electronic solutions provider.

"The cloud is not a place, it is a business strategy, and the systems that we will manage for Sam McCauley Chemists are designed to scale with the demands of their business at any point in time, allowing them to seamlessly implement their expansion plan," said Innovate CEO Jim Hughes.

"We are working with customers, and a partner in SCT, who understand that digital transformation is a game-changer and technology is a driver of their business, rather than a function of it.

"A key component of these contract wins was our ability to provide managed IT services to support their existing internal resources."

Following on from the successful cloud migration in the Irish Greyhound Board, Innovate continues to work with this customer to map their IT transformation to the goals of their business.

Innovate is also providing a monitored WAN connectivity product that will enable the Irish Greyhound Board to expand the use of video services to support live streaming, which is a critical growth driver and becoming core to their business.

"We see the growth in demand for SD-WAN services as providing the biggest opportunity for the company over the next two years," said Hughes, adding that the company will this week host an event on the topic with Cisco and Virgin Media.
