To deliver a truly
Helping companies achieve their greatest potential using the power of technology.
ActionPoint was founded in 2005 by close friends and technology enthusiasts, David Jeffreys and John Savage. Frustrated with the standard of technology services they experienced themselves they set out to build an IT and Software Development team who could deliver a truly exceptional service. Back then they had the foresight to see technology as a business enabler – when done right of course.
Their promise was simple; ensure clients had the IT infrastructure, Software and support they really needed to support their business. David and John now steer one of Ireland’s fastest growing technology companies. They have built a talented team of business and technology experts, who share their vision and understand the potential that properly applied technology can bring to business.
