Contract to create 20 new jobs
NxSystems Limited, a leading US provider of Global Payment Solutions has chosen the highly secure and resilient environment of TelecityGroup Ireland’s Northwest Business Park data centre to host its entire payment platform and database infrastructures. The investment will create 20 new jobs locally over the next 18 months and enable NxSystems to ramp up its international expansion plans by the end of 2013.
NxSystems offers a wide range of electronic payment products to businesses throughout the world, designed to help corporations simplify the complexity of global payment transactions. NxSystems decision to choose Dublin as their international operations location was based on the highly resilient and secure hosting environment offered by TelecityGroup. This along with high levels of service, support and engineering experience met all their stringent banking, security and regulatory needs.
Quent Rickerby, Director of International Operations for NxSystems Ltd said: “Our payments platforms are the core of our global business; downtime is simply not something our business or customers can ever experience.” The presence of TelecityGroup’s experienced data centre engineers on-site 24x7x365 was also critical in NxSystems choice of data centre. “ This was key for us – if one of our systems needs attention at 2am, TelecityGroup has the resources onsite to perform the functions we require to keep our infrastructure operational.”
“The integrity and security of data is our absolute top priority. As a result, the resilience and security of TelecityGroup’s Dublin data centre was crucial for us in our decision process. We have the peace of mind that we have chosen one of the most renowned data centres in Ireland, which provides a fully secure environment for us to operate and adhere to strict banking and card association industry regulations.”
TelecityGroup’s commitment to security best practice is underlined by its ISO27001:2005 Security Management accreditation, the stringent international management standard for data, IT and physical security.
Also key in NxSystems decision-making process to set up operations in Ireland was the highly skilled workforce available in the fields of technology, payments and banking. “Ireland has a great reputation for young, highly skilled and hardworking individuals, which is exactly what we need to help drive our international operations business forward ”, said Rickerby.
Maurice Mortell, Managing Director, TelecityGroup Ireland, says: “NxSystems are pioneering the way for global payment solutions. The internet opens new doors for businesses looking to expand internationally, which brings increased complexity in managing their currency in a global marketplace. Companies are now required to be able to transact and move funds across multiple payment methods in almost any currency. It is fantastic to see an international company such as NxSystems choosing Dublin and TelecityGroup as their location of choice in Europe.”
