Cork, Ireland, February 01, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- At the launch of the new Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship at Cork Institute of Technology by Sean Sherlock TD, Minister for Research and Innovation, a special Alumni Award was presented to AspiraCon in recognition of the company’s contribution to the economic development of knowledge-based businesses in the region.
Pat Lucey and Colum Horgan set up AspiraCon in 2007 to exploit their experience developing world-class Enterprise Software. Over the last 6 years, AspiraCon has helped over 40 companies bring world-class software to market.
In his award acceptance speech, Lucey explained that in the past three years software vendors have increasingly realized that having a cloud strategy is essential to boost their export sales by exploiting the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sales channel. In order to get to market quickly, software companies need the best and fastest way to build a robust SaaS solution, and will look to use any development framework available before deciding to write a line of code.
To solve this problem for software companies, AspiraCon developed InverCloud™ to provide all the SaaS parts of the product from user self-service sign-up and feature packages to billing and payment processing – a full end-to-end solution that developers can bolt onto their product to launch a cloud product in just weeks.
InverCloud™ addresses the time to market challenge associated with SaaS product development without the usual constraints of vendor lock-in and re-worked legacy code. In automating the SaaS model from customer sign-up right through to invoicing and payment, InverCloud™ also provides deep insight into customer behavior - improving the trial-to-paid conversion rate and decreasing customer churn. AspiraCon continue to work with established software companies and start-ups to bring their products to market and have a great advantage in that they’ve been through all the challenges themselves learning some valuable lessons along the way.
Through their years of enterprise experience, AspiraCon developed an in-depth knowledge of the best practices in IT Project Management. They are now a leading provider of IT and Project Management Services in Ireland, competing with – and beating – major international brands. The result has seen significant growth and market presence in the IT, Energy and Medi/Pharma industries, along with the deployment of AspiraCon software to Europe, US, Africa, and Asia.
