Paradyn Wins €3 Million in IT Deals With Local Authorities

Paradyn, Ireland’s only end-to-end IT and communications service provider, has won €3 million in new IT and communications contracts with Ireland’s local authorities in the past 12 months. Following competitive tendering processes, the company design, implement and manage a number of technical solutions for local authorities.

The company now provides managed services to 25 of the country’s 30 local authorities, with IT contracts worth in excess of €14 million won over the last 5 years. In the last three years alone Paradyn has won a total of 10 new local authority contracts, including Donegal County Council, Meath County Council and Wexford County Council.

Paradyn has designed bespoke solutions for each local authority, that have enabled them to become more efficient, more productive and benefit from less time spent managing IT. As part of the contract wins the Paradyn team has in some cases completely overhauled the authorities’ IT infrastructures, from implementing new wireless WAN infrastructure right through to desktop and server support. It has also established a managed network security solution to protect its local authority clients from increasing numbers of cyber-attacks.

Cillian McCarthy, CEO of Paradyn, said: “Since we began working with Cork County Council and Galway County Council in 2008 we’ve steadily built up the number of local authorities we work with to our current position where we count more than 80% of Ireland’s local authorities as customers, making us leaders in Government sector solutions. This level of experience gives us a unique perspective on the challenges that local authority typically face and the solutions that work. As Paradyn provides Ireland’s only one-stop managed service solution for IT, telecoms, security, network and business connectivity, we manage key elements of the local authority’s IT infrastructure. Our solution not only means less complex IT systems, but also our local authority customers spend less time on IT management, which increases efficiency while also improving security.”

He added: “Given the range of essential services that local authorities provide, it’s vital that they have a secure, reliable, integrated IT infrastructure. The tailored solutions we design and implement are specific to the exact needs of individual local authorities. We hold an annual event that specifically caters for our Government sector customers. This is an opportunity for us to highlight certain solutions that worked well and share technical updates on particular products and services.”

Formed following the recent merger of Exigent Networks, Irish Telecom and Netforce, Paradyn manages more than 30,000 public and private sector users who utilise upwards of 75,000 devices between them. As well as managed IT and communications services, the company specialises in providing clients with integrated cyber security solutions that can help them to defend against advanced threats.
