Blueface to create 12 jobs


Technology company Blueface has announced an investment of €1 million in Dublin, which will lead to the creation of 12 jobs.

The investment, which is being part-funded by Enterprise Ireland’s R&D Fund, will enhance the company's next generation IP telephony and services platform and drive export activity.

Dublin-based Blueface offers voice-over-internet protocol (Voip) products. Founded in 1994, it focuses generally on the small to medium-sized enterprise market.

Chief executive Alan Foy said the investment will underpin the company's growth in Ireland and abroad. “Our new R&D programme will assist us to enhance our product portfolio, create sustainable jobs and to continue to generate and develop innovative telephony solutions for our customer base in Ireland and the UK."

Enterprise Ireland classifies Blueface as a “scaling client”, meaning it is has particular potential for rapid and steady growth to quickly achieve international scale.

Minister for Enterprise Richard Bruton, said Blueface exemplifies the kind of innovation-based growth the government is targeting. "Initiatives such as this one by Blueface are exactly what is required if we are to achieve the levels of growth and employment that is needed to rebuild the economy and get jobs growing again."
