Uprise Festival

 

Goldfish’s founder and CEO recently spoke at the UPRISE Festival in Dublin. UPRISE is not your normal tech event, it has been styled on the theme of an outdoor music festival, with DJs, a laidback bean-bag-approach to business and picnic tables for exhibitors instead of stands. It was great to be at such a quirky tech event and we even took a Lotus Exige sports with us that we sponsor; it went down a treat (you can see it here).

Yesterday  we attended the UPRISE Festival in the Dublin’s RDS and took the nice Lotus Exige sports. It is driven by Lloyd Spendlove and sponsor it every year. But that wasn’t the star of the show, that our new web-phone the Babelfi, which launched at event.

The Babelfish is the first web-phone to be developed by an Irish company. It allows calls to be made directly from within a web-browser. So it is perfect for hot-desking, remote workers and companies, such as call centres, that want to streamline their operations.

Fans of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will recognise the name. It was the fish that put into Arthur Dent’s ear to translate what the aliens were saying. This won’t translate foreign languages, but it will translate what you say into zeros and ones and send it across the super-fast VoIP ne

The Babelfish has been designed by Goldfish as an alternative to traditional softphones, in order to simplify how their customers, make and receive calls.  Some of the larger companies they work with have requested a cloud-based phone that can be accessed by their staff from anywhere, without the need for a download and configuration.  The result is the Babelfish, which can be accessed via a simple link, with all calls made and received encrypted within a web-browser.

Tyreland Keith Duffy

Wonder of the Week: Tyreland

Our latest wonder of the week brings back images of white suits and screaming girls. But since his boy band heyday, Keith Duffy, Ireland’s favourite member of Boy Zone (sorry Ronan) has moved into the world of tyres with Tyreland.

Now we think they missed a trick by not renaming the company Tyre Zone in Keith’s honour, but by the time he partnered with the company last year, Tyreland were already a well established and respected brand across Dublin.

Just like us, Tyreland began trading 7 years ago during the recession and has grown steadily since. Tyreland are now using Goldfish’s VoIP telecoms services in all  six of their branches. Five across Dublin: Glasnevin, Clarehall, Sword, Kimmage and Clearwater; and a sixth branch in Navan. The company already employs 20 staff and is looking for further sites for expansion.

Tyreland offer great value for money – saving motorists up to 20% on their new tyres – and now they also do mobile tyre fitting. So, if you can’t get to any of their branches, Tyreland Mobile will come to you and change your tyres on the spot, at home, work, or given the fine weather, even down the beach. What’s not to love?

Check out their website for more details: Tyreland.ie

Given Keith’s showbusiness heritage it was only a matter of time before he got in on the action and started to help the promote Tyreland on camera. Check out the videos below.

         CLOUD TELECOMS FIRM GOLDFISH HAS BEEFED UP ITS SALES                                                     TEAM WITH SENIOR SALES PROFESSIONAL JONATHAN BUNCE

 The Greystones based company’s new ‘Head of Sales and Business             Development’ aims to target its cloud services to large blue-chip companies

19th June, 2017; Greystones, Wicklow, Ireland: Cloud telecoms company Goldfish.ie has today announced its hiring of experienced technology sales professional, Jonathan Bunce, to fill the new role of ‘Head of Sales and Business Development’. Set up in 2010, the firm is undergoing rapid growth. The number of Irish companies signing up for its VoIP telecoms services is continuing to increase. It also now provides Software as a Service (SaaS), with demand beginning to take off for Quvu, its cloud-based contact centre management software.

Jonathan has 22 years’ experience in front line sales roles for major tech companies in Ireland and the UK.  He moved to Ireland in 2006 to join the management team at eircom PhoneWatch. In over 8 years at eircom he had considerable success, leading multiple call centres and increasing customers by 75%.  Before moving to Goldfish he spent time in the e-learning sector driving expansion into the global telecoms market and East Asia.

Gordon O’Neill, Goldfish’s CEO, said “Over the past 7 years we have established ourselves as a major provider of Cloud Telecoms VoIP services. While this remains the core of our business, the area where we are seeing the largest growth in demand, is for ‘Quvu’, our cloud-based contact centre management software. The tech sector changes rapidly, so you have to think ahead and listen to your customers. What we are hearing is that companies want the ability to license software and services through the Cloud, so we believe this supply model will be a key area of future growth for us. We needed to bring in an experienced tech-sales professional to help us achieve this and Jonathan Bunce fitted the bill perfectly.”
