Kerry businesses struggling to adapt to the challenges presented by Covid 19 can now avail of free technology consultations from the IMaR Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateway at IT Tralee.
With shutdowns and social distancing with us for the foreseeable future, many businesses are looking at ways to continue operating while adhering to HSE guidelines. New technology may be the answer; but the question is, where to start?
For over 10 years, the IMaR Research Centre at IT Tralee has been working for companies in the areas of software, electronics, computing platforms, artificial intelligence, sensors and control systems, and the Technology Gateway's role is to make these skills accessible to business and companies.
IMaR are now offering 30 minute technology consultation sessions free to Tralee and Kerry businesses to go through the issues they may be having and help them find possible solutions. This could include expert advice on platforms to assist with online trading options, remote working, new ways of delivering training or expert content to customers, technology to remotely monitor facilities, control machines or achieve more with contactless interactions - not only payments, but door opening, machine on/off, data entry, personnel IDs and much more.
IMaR can also help with advice on the state funding and grants available to businesses to bring in new technologies or to develop their own new technology products.
Dr Daniel Riordan of IMaR says, "Many businesses have already been in contact about what technology they could bring in to address problems they are having with remote working, engaging with clients online or adhering to HSE social distancing guidelines while continuing to do business. Some we have been able to help by pointing them to the correct off-the-shelf technology or web-service, others have been advised on what technology or software is needed as a solution for their business and directed towards a suitable provider or consultant and others have engaged with us in the research and development of new products and services better suited to the current business climate."
