AN IRISH SOFTWARE firm that helps automate the key functions of small- and medium-sized companies is about to significantly scale up its operations.

Enterpryze, an Irish provider of business management software SAP Business One, has announced plans to create 200 new jobs at its Dublin headquarters in Cherrywood.

SAP Business One is business management software that was developed out of Germany at a company called SAP SE. The software is typically used by large companies to help automate processes like financials, operations and human resources.

The SAP software forms the backbone of many other tech solutions sold around the world by companies like Enterpryze, which has developed web- and app-based versions geared towards smaller companies.

The workforce expansion at the firm, which is a sister company of Irish software seller Milner Browne, will allow for rapid export-led growth over the next three years. Enterpryze was only established as an independent company earlier this year.

Speaking about the announcement, Enterpryze chief executive Morgan Browne said the recruitment will allow the company to provide its SAP solution to even more small businesses.

“Traditionally, this global leading software has been available only for larger-scale companies. But Enterpryze distills this disruptive solution for micro businesses for the first time,” he said.

“It enables them to streamline a wide range of management functions across a user-friendly system that saves significant time and cost.”

Enterpryze has received “significant” backing from Enterprise Ireland to fund the research and development phase of the company’s growth, which allowed it to develop its own tailored solution for SMEs.

The company was founded by former EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist Browne in 2014. The solution includes a number of applications, for as little as €5 per month, that can help small businesses manage processes like delivery, accounting, timesheets and product development.

New hires

Jobs Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor welcomed the announcement of the 200 new positions and said Enterpryze ”is a model of the type of company that can emerge from the indigenous sector”. The recruitment process will begin very shortly, according to the company, which currently has 20 staff on the books.

It has plans to hire staff in a number of core areas of the business including sales, customer service and technical support.

Enterpryze will also hire staff to specifically handle the development of the company into new regions and emerging markets.
