Enniscorthy-based tech firm Datapac has announced that it has designed and implemented a new IT infrastructure for information and document management company Kefron in a deal said to be worth over €200,000. The Enniscorthy firm, which also has offices in Dublin, has provided a digital transformation solution which enhances data storage, security and remote working capabilities for Kefron.

Founded in Dublin, Kefron employs more than 150 people throughout Ireland and the UK and provides IT solutions including document scanning and storage services, accounts payable automation, electronic document management solutions and archive consulting to customers across the legal, financial and public sectors to name but a few.

To manage and secure growing data volumes and enhance its digitisation capabilities, Kefron needed to access and maintain a highly efficient, reliable and scalable IT infrastructure. Security is also paramount as the company is responsible for the storage and management of many thousands of business files and documents, from its growing customer base.

Following a competitive tender, Datapac was chosen to deliver a comprehensive technology services overhaul at Kefron. This included replacing several of the company's servers and installing an advanced new Storage Area Network (SAN) platform. Datapac also deployed an Office 365 solution for Kefron, providing employees with the ability to work remotely.

Lisa Collins, business relationship manager, Datapac, said: 'Kefron is a real Irish success story, having grown from a small local operation to one of the foremost document management providers operating throughout Ireland and the UK. Datapac was uniquely positioned to design, implement and manage their upgraded IT infrastructure. We've increased flexibility and productivity across Kefron's entire organisation and enabled their employees to fully embrace mobile working. We also provided them with the storage and security platform they need to allow them to grow with confidence in an increasingly digitised and competitive industry.'
