Dublin IT services firm DataSolutions has reported a 23pc rise in revenue to €88m. The 30-year-old company also says that a €23m quarter between July and September, bolstered by two large deals involving Citrix deployments, is its highest to date.
The firm, which sells a range of IT networking, cloud and security services, is guiding €100m revenue for the coming financial year.
Managing director Michael O’Hara also quoted recent survey findings about firms’ lack of eco-friendly practices to argue that they should use his company’s services to start “working towards a greener business future”.
A TechCentral survey of 77 channel partners and 105 “end users” in August reported that 58pc of IT resellers and 41pc of end users don’t think IT vendors are doing a good enough job when it comes to making solutions more sustainable.
The survey found that resellers and customers would like to see IT vendors improve when it comes to “sustainability of solutions”.
Like most other IT services firms, DataSolutions argues that this can be interpreted as being a vote of confidence in the services it sells.
“As well as supporting companies during what has been an extremely challenging time, helping to secure and enable widespread remote working throughout the pandemic, we will be there as they move forward into the hybrid world of working and towards a greener business future,” said Mr O’Hara. “Technology will become ever more important to businesses as they look to adapt and transform how they operate. It will therefore be crucial for organisations to choose the right solutions and services to empower people and secure processes, while supporting sustainable practices and driving growth.”
The move comes after another IT service firm, Typetec, said it would soon move to a four-day week for all staff, while continuing to pay salaries at 100pc.
