Article on Arkphire's global IT Procurement business just published in the April issue of Cara, Aer Lingus in-flight magazine.
Heading up the IT procurement business for Arkphire, one of Ireland’s longest established IT solutions companies, Bríd Graham, has first-hand experience of working closely with leading international companies, supporting them on their global expansion path. Arkphire provides a full range of outsourced technology solutions, from the desktop to the data centre, each focused on delivering successful business outcomes for their customers. According to Graham, a big part of their success can be attributed to helping multinational companies such as HubSpot, Indeed and WeWork set up their operations in Europe, taking care of their IT requirements as they embark on expansion plans and invest in transformative technology.
“At the core of Arkphire’s proposition is our approach to doing business that’s built around the pillars of trust, strong partnerships and putting the customer first,” says Graham. Being there for companies as they initially establish their European operations, has subsequently catapulted Arkphire on to the international stage.
According to Graham, “almost every company with ambition wants to become faster, more efficient and extend their reach. Our process is to engage with customers, to understand their plans for their business, their employees and their own clients. It’s about understanding where they can improve their employee and customer experience. It’s about driving efficiency and productivity within their business.''
Arkphire’s Sarah Holmes, international business development executive, agrees, adding: “Our business model
is built around a ‘Follow the Customer’ approach, as our customer base of multinational companies continues to expand
its global footprint into other overseas markets, building out their IT supply chain, distribution and services offerings. Our
strategy is to continue to grow up and grow out with our customers as they seek to replicate the same innovative IT
infrastructure, solutions and interfacing equipment for their teams globally.”
