Claremorris-headquartered retail tech firm CBE Software is to create 40 new jobs in a R&D-led expansion that will see the company’s workforce expand to 150 people by the end of 2017.
CBE, which was founded in 1980, designs and sells point-of-sale (POS) solutions for the retail and hospitality sectors and is the largest indigenous retail IT player in Ireland.
CBE has grown into a serious export player, with installations in Canada, Australia, the Isle of Man and Algeria and, following significant market research, is preparing to enter the US market.
CBE’s client list includes: James Hall Group (UK), Sewell Retail (UK), Musgrave, SuperValu, Centra, BWG, Spar, Mace, Costcutter, Gala, Spar UK, Louis Fitzgerald Group, Aramark, Elior, Compass, IBM and Bewleys.
Innovation through continuous research and development has been the cornerstone of our business and it is through this that we have increased our market share in Ireland and significantly grown in our export markets year-on-year,” explained the CEO of CBE, Gerard Concannon.
“The CBE solutions enable our clients to manage their business more effectively and streamline their operations. Our latest software solutions have been hugely successful, primarily in the UK, since they launched last year. We have also recently formed a strategic partnership with NCR to supply self-checkout solutions to the independent retail sector in Ireland and the UK.”
Through its current expansion and development plan, CBE will employ 150 people by the end of 2017.
