Bray People - - INSIDE BUSINESS -

DAT­A­PAC, Ire­land’s largest indige­nous ICT so­lu­tions provider which em­ployes 100 people in En­nis­cor­thy, has an­nounced the pro­vi­sion of a com­pre­hen­sive range of man­aged IT ser­vices to Ir­ish re­cy­cling and waste man­age­ment com­pany, Thorn­tons Re­cy­cling, which has has a key oper­a­tion in County Wick­low.

Thorn­tons Re­cy­cling is a fully in­te­grated waste man­age­ment and re­cy­cling com­pany. It is one of the most suc­cess­ful Ir­ish re­cy­cling businesses, re­cov­er­ing over 85 per cent of the 350,000 tonnes of ma­te­rial pro­cessed an­nu­ally.

Thorn­tons op­er­ates a num­ber of re­cy­cling and re­cov­ery fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing Kil­coole, Co. Wick­low, as well as in Dublin, Meath and Kil­dare. The busi­ness has been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sig­nif­i­cant growth over the last two years, in­creas­ing its em­ployee num­bers by 50 per cent from 240 in early 2012 to 360 at present.

Dat­a­pac won a com­pet­i­tive na­tional ten­der and is now de­liv­er­ing a fully cus­tomised man­aged ser­vice to Thorn­tons Re­cy­cling. It proac­tively man­ages the en­tire IT in­fra­struc­ture from the desk­top right through to servers and mo­bile de­vices.

Dat­a­pac also looks af­ter all ven­dor man­age­ment on be­half of Thorn­tons Re­cy­cling en­sur­ing it has the very lat­est tech­nolo­gies that are the best fit for the busi­ness. This in­cludes guar­an­tee­ing the avail­abil­ity of its waste man­age­ment and mo­bile driver in­ter­ac­tion soft­ware. This soft­ware of­fers real-time collection lo­ca­tion and val­i­da­tion, al­low­ing driv­ers to iden­tify and track ev­ery bin lift. Collection data is trans­mit­ted from each ve­hi­cle back to head of­fice through­out the day, keep­ing ev­ery­one fully up-to-date.
