Tech company Fastcom is to add 25 new jobs as the company eyes further growth in Ireland and Britain.

The company, which specialises in network performance and security management, said it would create the jobs over the next three years, building its expertise in network engineering and customer support. The jobs will be based at Fastcom’s Sligo network operations and security centre.

The expansion is being backed by €1.2 million funding from private and director investment.

Fastcom said revenue and sales rose by 25 per cent this year, and it plans to double its turnover in the next three years.

The company manages 30,000 network-connected devices with software that allows businesses to manage their entire network, specialising in the retail sector.

“This investment will allow us to serve existing and prospective customers even better as we continue to develop our software and invest in our staff,” said Ross Palmer, managing director, Fastcom.

“Fastcom is unique in Ireland; no one else is doing what we do. By pulling a company’s whole network together and looking at its IT holistically, we can diagnose problems quickly and reduce callouts from IT service people by 50 per cent.”

Founded in 2004, the company also provides phone and broadband services for business and residential customers.
