ReaDI-Watch, a young Irish software start-up, which will be exhibiting at next week’s Web Summit in Lisbon, is looking to double its workforce to fourteen (14) people in the next year as it seeks to scale into the North American and UK markets.

Companies innovating in their products, processes, organisational structures and business models need support to drive them forward, ReaDI-Watch is the digital framework on which businesses can make informed and best-practice decisions.

As an easy to navigate platform designed for companies to manage RD&I in real-time, ReaDI-Watch incorporates ISO-aligned strategic tools to establish a company’s direction, auto-reports for R&D tax and grant funded projects, CPD-approved online training programmes along with business and project diagnostic assessments.

ReaDI-Watch has already grown a strong customer-base of innovative Irish companies across the technology, manufacturing, engineering, and software sectors, including Anam Technologies and Croom Precision Medical.

David Byrne, founder and CEO, ReaDI-Watch said, “In today's era of digitalisation and sustainability, our platform gives companies back the innovation capability and control to drive their businesses to success by providing them with a digital framework to execute on best-practice and informed RD&I strategies.”

“I am very excited to be exhibiting ReaDI-Watch to a global audience at next week’s Web Summit event as we seek to scale internationally and gain traction in the UK and North American markets. To support this strategy, we plan to double our workforce from 7 to 14 people during the coming year, and plan to invest heavily in our proprietary technology and capability to continue to grow at an accelerated rate.”
