Telecoms and IT companies join forces in Northern Ireland to launch eir evo and create jobs

With the launch of eir evo, which combines two prominent business technology brands, Northern Ireland has a major new and challenging force in telecommunications and IT.

Following the successful merger of eir Business and Evros Technology Group earlier this year, eir evo is now the largest provider to offer real end-to-end service delivery and technical innovation to the highest levels, both north and south.

By early next year, the newly combined company will have created ten new positions in Northern Ireland and will offer a comprehensive range of managed services to commercial customers across the region, including phone and data networking solutions, IT, cyber security, and cloud technologies.

In order to support its growing service provision and serve a bigger corporate audience across Northern Ireland in a fast-changing digital environment, eir Business NI has invested more than £10 million in establishing its own Next Generation high-speed fibre network since 2019.

“The announcement represents a major day for us and the larger telecoms and IT business here in Northern Ireland,” said Philip O’Meara, eir evo regional director for Northern Ireland. We’re thrilled to formally introduce eir evo, which is dedicated to creating and supporting the local business community. We intend to revolutionize the sector, make the market more competitive for customers, and make it easier for businesses across Northern Ireland to embrace innovative technology for future innovation by combining two established and industry-leading brands.

“Now more than ever, local businesses need the power to adapt, grow and evolve and we very much see eir evo as the driving force behind this important step change for customers. We’re proud to provide businesses across Northern Ireland with a new partner in digital transformation proven to place innovation, customer focus and industry-leading capability at its core.”

eir business NI began operations in 2007 as a branch of eir, Ireland’s largest telecommunications company, with around 2 million users and the country’s largest network. The corporation invested approximately £18 million in 2012 to complete the first and only island-wide interconnected Next Generation Network (NGN).

Since then, the firm has continued to provide unrivaled managed network services to the commercial and public sectors in Northern Ireland from its dedicated Service Operations Centre in Belfast. Eir business NI is locally oriented and focused, and is led by a highly experienced team.

“Since 2007, we have been dedicated to developing the telecoms and IT industry in the region, and over that time we have invested heavily in building our core network locally, connecting cities, towns, businesses, and people across the region to our services,” says Matt McCloskey, NI sales and marketing director at eir evo.

This announcement reaffirms our commitment to the people of Northern Ireland. As part of our next phase of growth, we’ll be adding 10 new roles to our highly skilled staff by early next year, as well as expanding our voice, data, and IT services portfolio to a broader business audience.

The launch of eir evo in Northern Ireland will provide a wider selection of end-to-end ICT solutions for enterprise needs, giving them more flexibility and options for future proofing their business.”

With leading accreditations from Cisco, Microsoft, Dell, VMware, Citrix, HP Enterprise, and others, eir Business has an unrivaled portfolio of solutions, accredited partnerships, and accolades.

For the third time in March 2021, eir Business was selected Cisco Partner of the Year, highlighting the company’s consistency and dedication to giving real value to its clients. For a network transformation project, eir Business also received the coveted Technical Excellence Award.

Evros Technology Group was recognized Microsoft Partner of the Year for Ireland in July 2021, for both Apps and Solutions within Microsoft Teams and Employee Experience. Both of these prizes are in honor of the several creative solutions they have developed to enable flexible working, which have been used by over 15,000 customers in 15 countries around Europe.
