NDRC in association with Games Ireland and Enterprise Ireland ran ‘GamePad’ as a pilot programme in Autumn 2013.
A startup accelerator for new game development companies, GamePad ran in parallel with NDRC LaunchPad to enable five early stage gaming companies to find their feet with tailored mentoring and access to the big players in the games industry.
GamePad was made possible through support from NDRC, Enterprise Ireland, Demonware and Games Ireland.
iGeoComms provide location-based communication platforms to large organsiations with geographically dispersed client bases. Using secure cloud-based technology, they enable their clients to pinpoint their communications to their customer base. iGeoComms systems help to improve relations between their clients and their clients’ customers as the platform allows a more refined and trusting relationship to evolve between these users helping to shape a mutual appreciation of their system and retain customers.
iGeoComms are initially focussed on providing a rapid information alert platform (R!SC) to the public service industry which will allow blue-light agencies, such as the Police and Fire services, to communicate pertinent information to targeted audiences at the press of a button. This will lead to better decision making minimising the impacts felt in public emergencies such as flooding and severe cold. In turn, this will significantly reduce the cost of such events to the insurance industry.
