Fleetmatics Opens Network Operations Centre in Tallaght
Milestone takes place during Engineers Week 2017
 
Fleetmatics Group today marked the official opening of its Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Tallaght, Dublin, a custom-built facility housing the company’s operations and application support engineers.
 
Fleetmatics, a Verizon company, enables businesses to meet the challenges associated with managing local fleets, and improve the productivity of their mobile workforce, by extracting actionable business intelligence from real-time and historical vehicle and driver data.
 
The announcement was made as part of Engineers Week 2017, an annual campaign to inspire the next generation of engineers and excite students about the possibilities a career in engineering can offer.
 
John Molamphy, Vice President of Engineering, Fleetmatics, A Verizon Company said: “Ireland is where the Fleetmatics story began and to this day plays a crucial role in our global business. It is fitting that the official opening of our Network Operations Centre comes during Engineers Week as Dublin is home to our research and development team. The NOC consolidates engineering resources to foster closer collaboration and quicker response times for monitoring, maintenance, scale and support of software and infrastructure.”
 
In June 2016, Fleetmatics announced the creation of 75 new R&D jobs in Tallaght. All of those jobs have since been filled. Fleetmatics’ workforce in this country are primarily engineers, with talent based here playing a leading role in delivering cutting edge UX, SaaS, Mobile, IoT and data analytics projects. 
 
The NOC processes hundreds of billions of system transactions a month and provides valuable insights into customer usage and system performance trends. An Early Warning System monitoring wall, which is fifty feet in length, enables Fleetmatics to identify a potential performance issue early and remedy it, ensuring a seamless customer experience. 
 
To celebrate the official opening of the NOC, a class of students from Cnoc Mhuire Senior School in Tallaght toured the facility and took part in fun Engineers Week activities.
 
Caroline Spillane, Director General, Engineers Ireland said: “Engineers Ireland is delighted to join with Fleetmatics in marking this important milestone for the company during Engineers Week. Ireland is known internationally for its engineering talent and it’s great to see Fleetmatics investing in a new Network Operations Centre to ensure that its customers around the world benefit from the innovation that takes place here.”
