WiredScore launches Ireland expansion
International property connectivity rating company WiredScore has today announced the opening of its latest office in Dublin in a bid to deliver improved connectivity to Ireland’s businesses
WiredScore, the rapidly growing property connectivity rating company, has launched a new office as part of its ambitious international growth plans. The announcement is the latest chapter in the company’s impressive growth record, where it will be officially providing digital connectivity certifications to commercial properties in Ireland.
Industry experts have suggested that the new service is expected to enhance Ireland’s position in Europe as an increasingly innovative digital hub for business.
As part of the launch package, WiredScore also unveiled new research into the connectivity challenges facing the country.
In Dublin 85 per cent of office workers have recently reported connectivity issues. Over a third also said they can’t work at all when they experience an internet outage. 79 per cent also stated that a reliable internet connection is essential to their company and their work.
Commenting on the launch, WiredScore’s EMEA Chief William Newton said, “WiredScore is delighted to be launching today in one of Europe’s most important hubs for the rapidly growing financial and tech industries”.
“Dublin has a vast array of impressive buildings, from beautiful old Georgian offices to the cutting-edge office architecture around Grand Canal Docks, that host some of the world’s largest and fastest growing companies.”
“We are fortunate to be working with forward thinking landlords, Dublin’s leaders in digital connectivity, who understand how to create buildings that will allow companies to grow and thrive.”
“We believe WiredScore will enhance Ireland’s reputation as a great place to invest and to do business, driving the creation of new jobs and greater opportunities. We can help to attract companies, some of whom may be considering relocation because of Brexit, to come to Ireland by providing transparent, globally recognised, connectivity ratings to potential office locations.”
Our survey shows that reliable internet connection is a top priority for Irish businesses with three in five telling us that the quality of internet connection was the main consideration for their company when they chose their office space.”
This shows that Irish businesses understand the importance of connectivity. We want to play our part in providing a service that ensures they are getting the best value for their investment and the office space that meets their connectivity needs,” concluded Newton.
Roland O'Connell, Chairman at Savills Ireland, welcomed the announcement, “I am delighted that WiredScore are launching in Ireland. We have increasingly found, as agents, that tenants and landlords are placing an ever-growing emphasis on connectivity.
“With WiredScore’s stamp of approval we will be able to identify and tell which buildings will give access to world class connectivity. We are confident that the Wired Certification will help Ireland continue to be an attractive place for businesses to grow and develop.”
