ActionPoint are delighted to have been appointed official IT supplier to Munster Rugby. With the support of Dell products, ActionPoint will manage all the IT requirements for Munster players and officials as well as the Thomond and Musgrave Park grounds.
As official IT Supplier to Munster Rugby ActionPoint will deliver the full suite of IT services ranging from IT security, management, helpdesk & support, preventative maintenance and cloud computing right up to file-sharing and email set-up and management for all staff and players.
Announcing the deal, ActionPoint Technology Group CEO David Jeffreys said “There really is only one thing that unifies the entire region and that’s the Munster Rugby brand, and as a company with its headquarters in Munster it’s a great privilege to establish a commercial relationship with Munster Rugby.
“We really only think of Munster in terms of what happens on the field but off it there is a large organisation with the same type of business needs as any other, perhaps even more. IT is one of the more acute business needs for companies today and Munster is no different and we take the headache of day-to-day management out of the equation.
This involves us putting in place support ranging from making sure computer systems, storage, etc. are all operating efficiently, that players’ smartphones are working, even down to having a representative present on match-day so that wireless systems are operating and there is no issue with the likes of ticketing systems.”
Munster Rugby Chief Executive Garrett Fitzgerald said: “As an organisation we have a huge dependency on IT services. So much of our administrative work is done across, and stored on, IT systems. We also have a substantial global supporter base, all of whom need to be communicated and transacted with, again across IT. Having the peace of mind of knowing our IT systems are operating efficiently, smartly and securely at all times is critical to us.
“ActionPoint Technology Group gives us that security day in day out. They are also passionate about the Munster brand and it always helps when a partner brings that to the table as well.”
Paul McCord, Director of Channel Sales at Dell, said of the deal: “Dell are delighted to support ActionPoint in this sponsorship. As our only premier partner in Munster it is no surprise to see ActionPoint team up with a sporting organisation whose reputation for professionalism and history of success mirrors their own approach to business” – Paul McCord, Director , Channel Sales
ActionPoint look forward to continually supporting the team – those on and off the pitch!
