Dublin-based telecoms service operator Viatel Group has today announced a deal for digital transformation services provider ActionPoint for an undisclosed sum.

The Limerick headquartered company provides cutting-edge software development and managed IT services to over 500 customers. These include Munster Rugby, Chill Insurance, National Lottery, the Department of Foreign Affairs and some credit unions. The company also has offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Lisburn. Viatel employs over 160 people across the country with locations in Dublin, Dundalk, Cork, and Limerick. It said that after today’s deal, its revenues are forecast to reach €65m this year.

Paul Rellis, CEO of Viatel, said the company have long been admirers of the ActionPoint team and the company’s culture. “We believe the combined Viatel and ActionPoint capability will provide the market with a unique proposition – Viatel’s strong roots in telecoms, communications and connectivity bolstered by ActionPoint’s capabilities in software development, the Azure Cloud and digital transformation means customers can expect a true end to end offering,” Mr Rellis said. “The customer-focused cultures of both companies was key in making this partnership a reality and we are excited about the opportunity to bring an even greater service offering to both Viatel and ActionPoint customers,” he stated.

David Jeffreys, CEO of ActionPoint, said today’s deal marks a new chapter in the company’s journey and enables it to continue growing its team across IT, software development and digital transformation.
