Datapac has been shortlisted for the Excellence in Community category in the Chambers Ireland 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards. The company received this nomination for its work in transforming technology services for Barretstown.

Now in their 13th year, the awards recognise and celebrate the important contribution that CSR practices make to Irish economy and society.

When it came to shortlisting applicants for the Excellence in Community category, the expert panel of judges looked at various factors, including the type of work done by the organisations, and the benefits and impact for their partner charity.

Datapac said it takes pride in supporting local charities and it was delighted to be chosen as the technology advisor and partner for Barretstown.

The provider was tasked with a complete upgrade of the charity's ICT infrastructure, including existing networks, servers, business continuity systems, PCs, laptops and the introduction of a high-speed broadband service for the first time. Datapac, which has its headquarters in Enniscorthy, also redesigned the campus network, including the onsite medical facility, activity rooms, accommodation units and the administration centre.
