15th January, 2019 – Mumbai. The US-based sister concern of ISS Software Development Centre – E3 Retail has officially started operations this week in its new office in Sligo, Ireland. The new E3 Retail office is situated in the Innovation Centre at IT Sligo. This project is supported by the Government through IDA Ireland. With this, E3 / ISS Retail establishes its presence in Europe and plans to provide localised version of its retail solutions platform and architecture based on a cloud utility (“pay as you go”) model.
“This is a really proud moment for us. In 2018, we revamped our Indian operations and announced our plans to expand to other markets in Asia-Pacific, leading the operations from our corporate office in Gurugram, India. Now we have expanded our global footprints into Europe. With this, we have strong footholds in 3 major regions – North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific” said Mr. Swetank Shekhar, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, E3 Retail, USA and CEO, CTO, ISS Software Development Centre, India.
IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said: “This software development project by E3 Retail is a terrific and very welcome investment for Sligo and the North West Region, given IDA Ireland’s strategic objective to win more high value projects for the Region”.
As per the 2018 S&P Global Market Intelligence study, Ireland along with Germany has emerged as a leader in attracting financial businesses in Europe. “After working with the Ireland Development Authority to evaluate the technical talent in Ireland and appreciating the wonderful community spirit alive in Sligo, we are both honoured and excited to create a new centre in Sligo”, said Barry Henderson, Co-Founder & COO of E3 Retail, USA.
