Website development funds for two firms
TWO Wexford companies have been included among 20 small firms which have won website development funds.
The IE Domain Registry (IEDR), the managed registry for Ireland's official Internet address.ie, said Wexford-based SMEs Killowen Farm, a family run business which produces yoghurt and dairy products using traditional methods from the Dunne Family Farm, and Datascope Ltd, a printer of newspapers and magazines for 49 companies across Ireland, will be included in its OPTIMISE e-Commerce Website Development Fund following their graduation.
Twenty small firms will gain access to the fund to improve their e-commerce capabilities in 2014.
The announcement was made at a ceremony addressed by the Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte, who presented graduation certificates to this year's winners. Now established and entering its fourth year, IEDR'S OPTIMISE Fund has already provided 45 small and micro-business owners with tangible e-tools and features, consultation, training and e-commerce development support services to 'optimise' their existing online presence.
