Dublin software company GeoPal has received €1.5million in seed funding. The investment came from the Enterprise Ireland High Potential Start Up (HPSU) fund, and private investors, to support the international expansion of the business to the USA, UK and Asia.

GeoPal is a cloud service and mobile app for companies that need to manage a field based workforce and is used across industries including field service, facilities management, home healthcare, civil engineering & surveying, and the public sector.
While these industries are diverse, they have a common set of needs: the need to see the real-time location of field workers and the jobs they are working on, the need to increase field worker productivity, the need to eliminate paperwork from the field and the need to provide proof of delivery for work done or services provided.

With better visibility of worker locations, scheduling of jobs is more efficient, and because information captured in the field is sent instantly and securely to the office without the need for data re-entry later, workers can complete more jobs per day. This means that businesses no longer suffer from lost or delayed paperwork, and the improved efficiency of data transfer means invoices can be issued faster, increasing cash flow and customer satisfaction.

Gerard O’Keeffe and Paul Coyle founded GeoPal Solutions in 2011 with Sean O’Reilly as CTO. The cloud solution offers mobility and premium functionality to businesses at a low cost, which enables them to be more competitive. Identifying this gap in the market, GeoPal has been developed on customer feedback to provide a flexible solution that can be applied across multiple business processes. Many customers use GeoPal as a mobility ‘plugin’ to transfer data between the field and their existing systems. As GeoPal is cloud-based it is faster and easier to implement, meaning businesses can see results faster, for less cost.

“We have secured a number of high profile customers in Ireland and internationally since bringing GeoPal to market in 2012, and recently established a network of sales partners which has expanded our business internationally. This expansion gave our business the credibility which enabled us to secure the investment and create 20 new jobs”, O’Keeffe explained.
