Convergint Ireland has been eager to get involved with the STEP Up initiative since this program was launched during Convergint’s annual Social Responsibility Day. Finding a deserving school that would both need and appreciate Convergint’s support in securing their education facilities was essential. Whilst many city schools in Ireland receive government funding, rural community schools rarely acquire the needed funds to enhance and protect their families and pupils. With Convergint Ireland expanding and opening their first Cork office in the coming months, Ballyvongane National School was a perfect fit to begin the STEP up program in Ireland.
Tony Burns, Pelco Business Development Director and Atmane Bensghir, 2N Global Key Account Manager deserve special recognition for their contribution and efforts to make this initiative possible. A special thank you to all the Convergint Ireland team for their efforts, but especially to Engineers Pat Mcmahon and Alan Farmer who completed the installation, and to Project Manager Selena O’ Regan who ensured standards and timing were met to complete the program.
