Bizquip, a leading provider of office equipment in Ireland, has announced a further investment of €120,000 as it launches one of Ireland’s first dedicated print and document management centres for client demonstrations.
This latest investment adds to an already revamped showroom facility completed in recent years at a cost of €250,000. The new facility has opened next to Bizquip’s head office and retail centre in Sandyford, Dublin. It gives Irish organisations the opportunity to view and test advanced new services such as cloud printing and biometric security authentication.
The investment has been funded by accumulated earnings in the business as revenues have grown by 16% in the last year. To pursue continued growth in its business and to assist with live client demonstrations, Bizquip has also hired four new business development and consultancy staff to grow total employee numbers to 50.
With increasingly mobile workforces, the focus of the new showroom will be to demonstrate the ease of managing documents securely and efficiently from any location. Bizquip is working closely with its partners, especially Ricoh, one of the world’s leading office equipment and document services companies, to ensure it has the next generation of office equipment onsite at all times.
Bizquip will continually research global technology trends and introduce innovative new technologies into the showroom for Irish businesses to experience. One unique piece of technology on display at present is a wireless mobile ultra short throw projector which can display images of up to 80 inches in dimension from just 5 inches away.
Speaking at the launch of Bizquip’s new technology interaction suite, Phil Keoghan, CEO of Ricoh UK and Ireland, said, “This month marks the 30th anniversary of the start of our partnership with Bizquip and we’re always impressed by their ability to innovate and grow during both good times and bad. This new technology showroom is a world-class facility and provides Irish businesses with a fantastic hands-on experience of new technologies which can boost mobility, security and productivity. Bizquip’s vision of the future office very much matches our own and we’re looking forward to introducing more exciting technologies and services together into the Irish market.”
Jim Leyden, Managing Director and founder of Bizquip, said, “This is a very important strategic investment for Bizquip and puts the client at the heart of everything we do. We wanted to build an interactive live tech suite which can give local businesses a full appreciation of the very latest global office technologies. We are delighted to have achieved that and the response from our clients at our opening event has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re looking forward to welcoming many more clients and prospects to our new suite over the coming months and years.”
