ActionPoint acquires Dublin tech firm

This is the second acquisition in three years for Limerick’s ActionPoint.

Limerick digital transformation firm ActionPoint is projecting annual revenues of €16m after acquiring Dublin firm ICT Project Management for an undisclosed sum.

In what is the second acquisition for ActionPoint, the multi-million-euro deal will help to expand its presence in Dublin.

“We now have an extensive client base which includes the whole island of Ireland and the UK and the US”

ActionPoint customers include Munster Rugby, National Lottery and the Department of Foreign Affairs amongst many other Irish, US and U.K. based clients.

Scaling locally and globally

The deal will further strengthen ActionPoint’s position in the Dublin market and ICT Project Management’s existing customers will benefit from the addition of cloud, software development and digital transformation expertise that the Limerick firm is renowned for.

ActionPoint also expects to announce that more than a dozen jobs will be created in the next 18 to 24 months as a result of the acquisition, strengthening the service offering for both their Irish and international client base.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with ICT Project Management,” said ActionPoint CEO David Jeffreys.

“Today’s news is another significant milestone for ActionPoint as we expand our strong national presence into Dublin. I am truly proud of our team who have driven this expansion. We now have an extensive client base which includes the whole island of Ireland and the UK and the US. Without their dedicated work, today’s announcement would not have been possible.

“Barry and the team have built a reputation for excellent customer service and technical expertise over the last 19 years, and we are excited to add ActionPoint’s capability to support ICT’s customers in their digital transformation journey.”

The addition of ICT Project Management to the ActionPoint group will bolster their presence across the country with offices in Limerick, Dublin, Cork, Galway and Lisburn which in turn will allow the business to grow its client base and assist companies to get their organisation online and achieve their full potential.

Founded by Barry Byrne in 2002 and headquartered in Ballymount, Dublin, ICT Project Management specialises in the design, implementation and maintenance of IT Services for a wide range of businesses. The company provides services to clients across a wide range of sectors including Biotechnology, Legal, Financial Services and Manufacturing.

“This is a very exciting day in the history of our company. From the beginning, ICT Project Management has been focused on removing the complexity from IT Service delivery, focusing instead on delivering efficient, effective service solutions to our customers,” Barry Byrne added.
