eXpd8 is proud of our heritage as an Irish family business.
We were founded by entrepreneur Declan Branagan in 1985. Declan originally converted his garage and ran the business from there as a one person operation. He remembers being the manager, salesperson and delivery driver all in one! As the business expanded Declan took on a number staff and moved to a bigger office premises.
Branagan Business Supplies (as it was known then) was at the forefront of the IT revolution in the 1990s and 2000s, helping companies adopt new IT-based systems. The business became an IBM reseller in 1993 and were also one of the first Amstrad re-sellers in Ireland. We have continued to seek out and provide our clients with the latest and most advanced technology solutions to power their businesses.
We moved into case management systems in 1995 after seeing customer demand for specialised IT products within the professional services sector. eXpd8 Software has been empowering organisations for over 20 years and is still very popular with Irish and global businesses.
On his first day as a business owner, sitting in his garage, Declan developed a mission statement for the business. His goal to provide a personal touch and full attention to detail in every interaction – with clients, with suppliers and with colleagues as the team grew.
eXpd8 has grown significantly beyond its entrepreneurial roots, but Declan’s mission statement still stands. As the business expands, our department managers are ensuring that this personal touch and attention to detail remain at the heart of eXpd8’s culture and growth plans. As Executive Chairman, Declan continues to ensure that eXpd8 provides a level of service that both himself and the business can be proud of.
FLEXIBLE. TRUSTED. SECURE.
