Auxilion invests €2m in future workplace

Auxilion’s strategy is to support the modern workplace and empower workforces.

Digital transformation player Auxilion has revealed plans to invest €2m in a Modern Workforce Division.

Headquartered in Dublin, through this new division, Auxilion plans to build out its portfolio of cloud, business enablement and governance solutions to innovate for customers, support the modern workplace and empower workforces.

“One of the long-lasting impacts of Covid-19 will be how it demystified and disproved many of the misconceptions about how employees could work”

These products and services – developed to enable greater agility, efficiency and productivity for organisations – will be underpinned by technologies including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Azure. They will also help business customers to streamline operations and be more compliant by enhancing visibility and security.

The future of work? An existential question

“Today, the very future of working has become the existential question for employers across the world,” said CEO Philip Maguire. “Companies are deliberating, debating and validating ways to support employee enablement and engagement, while staying focused on business process performance in this hyper-accelerated hybrid work environment.

“It’s therefore critical that businesses understand the preferred employee experience for the future and are clear about what type of hybrid or flexible work environment is required to support the business strategy. Ultimately, they need to develop a technology roadmap to align business needs and employee expectations. Our significant investment in our Modern Workplace offering will give businesses the means to both drive process efficiency and foster greater collaboration.”

Auxilion’s Modern Workplace will also serve as the cornerstone of the company’s Research & Development (R&D), product development and go-to-market engine for its newer Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering.

Heading up Auxilion’s Modern Workplace will be Donal Sullivan, CTO for Auxilion, and a team of workplace technologists and digital transformation consultants. The investment in the division is key to the long-term growth plans of the business. Earlier this year, it announced that it was creating 110 jobs and planning to generate €60 million in revenue by 2024.

“One of the long-lasting impacts of Covid-19 will be how it demystified and disproved many of the misconceptions about how employees could work. Necessity being the mother of invention, lockdown saw businesses and employees find new ways of working effectively,” Sullivan said.

“Whether companies bring employees back to the office, allow working from home permanently or adopt a blended approach, the genie is out of the bottle.

“However, businesses need to be prepared. In order to embrace these new work practices, organisations need to equip themselves to handle the long-term proliferation of dispersed teams, blended work environments, increased collaboration demands, complex security requirements and communications challenges. That is why we are launching the Auxilion Modern Workplace – to provide the technologies, training, people and support to empower enterprises to embrace this new working reality, without sacrificing governance, control, process and oversight.”
