We were delighted to win the award for Best Technology Company at this year’s Business Eye/First Trust Awards.
Fighting off stiff competition from eight other companies in the category, the award recognised our technology, the IRP platform, which has been instrumental in changing the fortunes of a host of well-known online companies over the past decade. In excess of £1 billion online sales have been transacted for these companies on the IRP and it continues to break boundaries in the world of ecommerce.
IRP Commerce Chief Technical Officer, William Bailie said, “It’s great to be recognised for our technology, which has made a significant difference to many companies across the UK and Ireland. Our team of developers are some of the best in the business, so being able to celebrate their hard work is a real achievement. It has been a busy few years and this award further reinforces how our technology is leading the way in our industry.“
This win is hot on the heels of the latest development launch, DeepAgent™ — an artificial intelligence engine for ecommerce. DeepAgent™ analyses online data from ecommerce sites in order to learn the actions that lead to more sales and profitability. It then feeds this back to the company so they can identify what steps to take. The predictions have already seen significant results and increased year-on-year sales for some clients by more than 100 per cent.
