“As a small start-up business with 3 onsite employees, the Bandon E Centre allowed me to have a fit for purpose office space in the centre of Bandon. The office enables us to deal with our off-site resources and clients in a very professional manner. And while most of us work on-site with our customers, we have been able to organise multiple meetings here in the conference room as well. The facilities have allowed us to present ourselves in an engaging way opposite our clients, provides us with a hub of information sharing and is a cost effective way for any small business to take a step in to the bigger business world”
“In 2014 I returned to Ireland to start up my own business, but before I could do that I had agreed to work an extra-long notice period for the company I was leaving in Toronto, Canada. I “telecommuted” from the EBandon office to the Toronto office for 2 months, it was absolutely perfect with the high internet speed allowing me to VPN in to the server, so I could access everything I needed in Canada and use VOIP to speak with my customers who were mainly based in the USA. As a new business owner I have found it ideal, mainly because I didn’t need to worry about finding a premises to lease or headaches such as setting up internet, electricity, buying furniture or even worry about paying rates. I also have potential clients meet me in the office and it definitely gives a more professional feel than if I worked out of a home office.”
“As a professional starting out, the E Bantry Enterprise Centre provided me with the facilities (internet, desk space, confidentiality & privacy), support and space I needed to get started, without the overheads. The staff in Cork County Council who deal with the Enterprise Centres are a great source of help & support, and are always available to resolve any issues that may arise. It has proven to be a vital part of my business success thus far.”
“E-Bantry provided the right resource and location for me to work remotely (with full internet access) with my team in Cairo. I found the ECentre team really accommodating and friendly to deal with. It allowed me to interact and learn about another start-up businesses, which was really interesting. I would strongly recommend this wonderful low cost service to anyone who needs a work station to work remotely whilst in West Cork or indeed any start-up business. This is a low cost, supportive solution.”
“The Training Room is bright and airy, with the flexibility to deal with any type of group. Our groups loved the quiet location and even more so they loved the ample free parking which meant that they didn’t have to allow additional time before the class to find parking. We’ll be back!”
“I located North Star Coaching at the Charleville e-Centre in June 2012.The facilities here are perfectly suited to the needs of my business. It allows me the flexibility of my own desk space at a very affordable rate. The services include high speed broadband and printing facilities.
Most important to my business is the availability of the boardroom where I can hold meetings and training at discounted rates. The 24/7 swipe card system allows me to access the office outside normal business hours.
As a self-employed business owner I find it to be a very important benefit of the E Centre. If you are a small business owner working from home I would highly recommend popping into the E Centre to see what it has on offer. For €50 per week it represents excellent value for money in the world of business today.”
“As part of an initiative to explore the feasibility of remote working held by my then employer, CMD Training Institute (www.cmd.ie ), I was able to relocate from Sligo to Charleville and still carry out my duties to the expected high standards. This was facilitated immensely by the proactive and work-friendly environment provided by the E-Charleville Enterprise Centre.
Ease of access, proximity to both Limerick and Cork and newly improved broadband are some of the reasons why I would recommend the E-Centre as being an option for people looking for a dedicated workspace, be it for their own SME or working remotely. These advantages are augmented by dedicated staff, who are both helpful and enthusiastic.”
“The E-Charleville Enterprise Centre is the perfect location for our Weight Loss Challenge, which runs Thursday evenings from 7-8pm. We are extremely happy with both the facility and the staff; the facilities provided are perfect for what we need, the conference room is the ideal size, allowing us to have a class of up to 25 participants, and is always set up and ready for us with a projector available for our weekly presentations. The kitchen is always tidy and has everything we require. Our customers are delighted with the facilities and the comfort it offers. There is ample parking for us and our customers, and the Centre is easy to find.
For the value for money we would struggle to find anything better in the area and it came highly recommended from a local business woman and it has surpassed our expectations. We would highly recommend the Charleville Enterprise Centre to anyone in business in the future!”
“We needed a low cost but professional office environment for just one person from which to build and develop the company. E-Fermoy’s hot desking service was the perfect solution. The ECentre at Fermoy and the hot desking service on offer was the perfect solution. iSeek.ie has grown over the last number of years and now that we employ 6 people, we have moved into the new own-door office rooms at the Centre. Having the flexibility to add additional desks and rooms as needed has been a contributing factor to our success.”
“The E-Fermoy Enterprise Centre is everything I was looking for and more. The hot desks are extremely spacious and comfortable and the high speed broadband is ideal for anyone whose business is online. The facilities are second to none, with meeting rooms and a really useful kitchen, for the long days at the office. I worked from home for a long time, and moving to the E-Centre was one of the best things I did in regards to taking my business and ideas to the next level. Their 24 hour access is invaluable, as I spend a lot of unsociable hours at work, and the fact you can access it any time day or night is a really massive bonus. The team who run it are top class, and at €50 a week, you really can’t go wrong. Highly recommended.”
“We at O’Flynn Medical Ltd have used the E Centre, in Millstreet, for presentations/meetings and have found the facility invaluable. It offers a quiet and comfortable hassle free atmosphere, supported by internet access, which is great to conduct business. It also offers facilities which are ideal for training purposes.”
“When Alps were deciding to locate in Millstreet, 25 years ago, one of the pivotal positive points was the proactivity of the local community. As we have grown our business since then, it has been supported by the community and indeed our employees from the local area. The development of the eCentre in Millstreet is the latest manifestation of this local spirit and we look forward to seeing business grow in it. By having this centre as the focal point for entrepreneurs in the area, will allow ideas and new businesses to develop and support each other, as well as the support of local experience and expertise.”
