Work Smarter

Here at Goldfish we help companies work smarter. But what does that mean? It means we are changing the way companies operate, by using new technology that we provide to aid them in improving their business performance. Our VoIP telecoms and contact centre technology helps our customers boost productivity by helping them work more efficiently and aid them in improving performance and help them lower their costs.

We have been in business since the 2010 when, during the height of the recession, we were set up by Gordon O’Neill. Since then he’s taken Goldfish from helping sole traders and SMEs get virtual numbers to provide corporate telecoms services to large international companies like IDG and Dropbox and serving customers across five continents.

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).

Get a free softphone

Most customers access our numbers with a VoIP handset, also know as a SIP phone. However, a lot of customers also use a softphone, either as their main phone or in addition to a handset.

All Goldfish customers get a free 3CX softphone  for each user on their accounts. There is a preconfigured download in the MyGoldfish Control Panel.  It comes pre-configured to the account with the SIP ID and user name already included.

The 3CX can used independently to answer or make calls via your Goldfish number or it can be used alongside our Grandstream handsets and the GSWave app. If you have handset, app and softphone confguredm then if you receive a call they will all ring at the same time.

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.
