DELL’s campus in Raheen has played host to an innovation showcase highlighting new products being developed locally by the firm’s staff.

Projects as diverse as an app which pairs new recruits with established employee mentors, and a programme which facilitates non-profit groups in accessing free project training featured.

Meanwhile, the configuration services engineering team presented new colour printing technology for asset tags, and Dell’s Emea solutions centre team demonstrated how it is bringing the experience of its Limerick-based lab to customers around the world using web-based network infrastructure.

Timmy O’Dwyer, executive director, global service operations and site leader, Dell Limerick, said: “Our operations in Limerick have been evolving for the last 25 years and today we are fortunate to have a real mix of experience and vitality among our team. It’s an exciting time to be at Dell in Limerick and we are very much focused on innovating for the future, as today’s event shows.”

Denis Kelly, vice-president, client support at Dell, said the firm’s start-up culture is facilitating new ideas.
