A retail software company is to create 50 jobs over the next three years to coincide with a boost for the sector on the back of increasing consumer confidence.

Positive ProStrategy Retail (PPR) offers Microsoft technology to retailers that unifies operations from front office, such as store management, to back office such as finance, supply chain, replenishment, and external channels including web, social and mobile.

PPR plans to increase its workforce from just over 60 employees to more than 110 over the next three years. All of the roles will be specialist IT consultant and support positions based in Dublin and Fermoy, Co Cork.

The technology is used by retailers such as Primark, BWG and car dealer group Windsor Motors.

PPR director of business solutions Joe Kelly said retailers “need fast and accurate analysis and insights into shopping trends and day-to-day operations”.

Enterprise Ireland manager digital technologies John MacNamara said the company has the potential “to continue to successfully scale its operations in the Republic, the euro zone and beyond”.
