OpenSky expands technology offering as the first Irish partner of global tech firm Aquaforest


OpenSky, the digital transformation specialist for government organisations and large private enterprises, has announced that it is the first Irish company to partner with Aquaforest, a global software company based in the UK.

This strategic partnership will enable OpenSky and Aquaforest to deliver high-performance digital search technologies – including SharePoint, PDF and OCR software products – to the Irish market. As part of Aquaforest?s respected partner directory, OpenSky will work with clients in Ireland who are using the Aquaforest Searchlight suite of products, from project implementation to software support.

Established in 2001, Aquaforest is a leader in the provision of searchable PDFs. Currently, its software is being used by more than 2,000 customers across 50 countries to streamline document workflow processes.

The collaborative venture will help to support Irish businesses by making SharePoint content searchable and findable – saving organisations time, money and possible litigation. OpenSky and Aquaforest’s shared expertise in automated PDF findability solutions for platforms, such as Microsoft’s Office365 and SharePoint Online, means they can implement consultancy solutions based on clients’ individual business needs and requirements.

Michael Cronin, Managing Director, OpenSky, said: “It is wonderful to work with such a respected partner like Aquaforest who will support our delivery of innovative solutions for our clients. As Aquaforest’s first Irish partner, we are delighted to be able to bring digital search technology to the Irish market that will have a positive impact on our public and private sector customers.

“Together with Aquaforest, we are sharing our expertise and experience to achieve successful outcomes and improve operational efficiencies for our clients. As we continue to see a significant increase in the demand from government agencies and large private enterprises for digital transformation, we look forward to expanding our range of services through our Aquaforest partnership.”

Susan Edlin, Partner Program Manager at Aquaforest, said: “Aquaforest takes great pleasure in welcoming OpenSky Data Systems, a pioneering IT solutions provider, as the first Aquaforest partner in Ireland. OpenSky has proven its ability to successfully deliver solutions using Aquaforest Searchlight to Irish government clients which has enabled them to be appointed as a specialist Aquaforest Searchlight Tagger software onboarding partner. Great partnerships are based on sharing the same values – for us and OpenSky, it is about providing high-quality innovative solutions whilst working with integrity and respect. We are a great market sector fit too, providing solutions to sectors such as health and social, transport, environmental, retail and public sector bodies.”
