Tánaiste Simon Coveney Visits VisionID - VIDEO
VisionID welcomed, An Tánaiste, Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, Simon Coveney TD to its new headquarters in Ard Gaoithe Business Park, on Monday, August 26th.
The Tánaiste was joined by Mayor of Clonmel Cllr. Garret Ahearn, and members of the Tipperary Chamber of Commerce to officially open the new Customer Technology Centre in VisionID.
The Tánaiste, Cllr. Ahearn and guests were greeted by the management team of VisionID, before being brought to the Customer Experience Centre, where live demonstrations of VisoinID’s latest solutions were carried out. One demonstration which was carried out was the use of RFID to track and trace assets.
The state-of-the-art Customer Experience Centre was an integral part of the close to €1m investment of the new headquarters which VisionID made before making the move to the new HQ.
Following on from the demonstrations, the Tánaiste and guests were invited on a tour of the premises, where they got to meet all 40 members of the VisionID team. This included the VisionID Multi-Lingual Support Team, who from their help desk in Clonmel can offer support in several European languages including French, German, Spanish and Italian, across six continents.
The Tánaiste commended the work of VisionID on excelling in areas such as multi-lingual support and IT, whilst conducting business outside of a main city.
Robert Jones, Managing Director at VisionID, thanked An Tánaiste, Minster for Foreign Affairs & Trade, Simon Coveney, Mayor of Clonmel Cllr. Garret Ahearn, and all in attendance for taking the time to come and visit the new headquarters.
“This is an exciting time for VisionID, celebrating almost 20 years in business and opening this fantastic new facility. The new space allows room for more practical and engaging training for our employees. We have also put a lot of work into our Customer Technology Centre, so look forward to welcoming new and old customers. The Customer Technology Centre allows our customers to see a wide variety of technologies from global manufacturers such as Zebra, Samsung and Cognex. They can engage with the technology first hand and learn some of the many benefits of integrating these solutions into their business.”, said Jones.
The move to the new premises comes as part of VisionID’s continuous growth over the past number of years, with 13 new employees over the past twelve months, and plans to double the workforce in the next two years.
