WiredScore has launched in Ireland. The company is now officially providing digital connectivity certifications to commercial properties in Ireland, a service which is expected to enhance Ireland’s position in Europe as a competitive and innovative digital hub for business.
WiredScore has commissioned an independent survey to highlight the benefits of efficient and reliable internet services for offices in Dublin.
The research highlights that connectivity issues are common in Dublin with 85% of offices workers reporting incidents of connectivity failure. It also reveals that loss of connectivity increases stress levels of employees working to tight deadlines.
Additional findings include:
- 1 in 10 employees experience connectivity issues at work every day
- Over a third say they can’t work at all when they experience an internet outage
- For 79% a reliable internet connection is essential to their company and their work
While a clear majority of those surveyed (77.5%) said their connectivity issues tend to last less than 30 minutes, the findings show that interruptions to internet services have an impact on productivity far greater than is indicated by the duration of the outage.
Commenting on the findings WiredScore's President and EMEA MD William Newton, said, “WiredScore is delighted to be launching in one of Europe’s most important hubs for the rapidly growing financial and tech industries. We are fortunate to be working with forward thinking landlords, Dublin’s leaders in digital connectivity, who understand how to create buildings that will allow companies to grow and thrive.”
WiredScore has 11 Irish clients who have already signed up for a digital connectivity certification rating: Blackstone, Castlepark, Clancourt, Green REIT, Hibernia REIT, Hines, IPUT, Irish Life, McGarrell Reilly Group, Ronan Group, U+I
