I am delighted to announce Vision-net's acquisition by our new partners, CRIF.
Vision-net has built an exceptionally strong business in Ireland over the past 26 years, and we are now excited to position the company for further growth, with the support of our new partners.
Our company is innovation-led and delivering a high-quality service to our clients is our top priority. CRIF is one of the world's leading fintechs and most importantly, shares our same values, culture and ambitions for the business.
CRIF, headquartered in Bologna, Italy, has been operating in the UK and in the Republic of Ireland for many years, supporting a variety of players including financial institutions, insurance companies and other organisations with innovative decision support systems, analytics and software solutions.
Being part of the CRIF family positions Vision-net to further enhance our product offering and thereby to continue to deliver innovative, unrivalled analysis for our customers.
My colleagues and I are looking forward to working alongside CRIF's Regional Director for the UK and Ireland, Sara Constantini, in implementing CRIF's new Irish business strategy and in positioning Vision-Net for further business success.
2017 was a record year for company start-ups in Ireland while insolvencies went through a levelling off period.
We are in acceleration mode and Ireland has taken its place as Europe's fastest growing economy. Many aspects of that recovery are demonstrated in our 2017 Annual Review.
2 out of 3 businesses say their costs are higher today than pre-recession levels. The Vision-net 'Cost Of Doing Business Report', highlights the increasing trend towards rising business costs.
