The shortlist for the IT & Fintech category of the Irish Times Innovation Awards has been announced and, as the category sponsor, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP is delighted to congratulate the three companies who will progress to the next stage of the judging process.
Sprig Technologies Ltd has developed a SaaS product called GreyScout™ which solves the problem of counterfeit and grey market activity online by removing unauthorised content from the customers’ view. GreyScout™ has developed software to increase visibility; automate the detection and collection of evidence of counterfeit and grey market activity; and provide tools to notify and then remove offenders.
Danalto, a Dublin-based IoT platform provider, has introduced a positioning intelligence solution called FiLo™. It can locate tagged assets or personnel with sub-5 metre accuracy within defined positioning areas. By utilising LoRa 2.4GHz networking technology, a new-age radio frequency band created by Semtech, the solution can operate at low power across wide open areas and with little infrastructure. With these capabilities, FiLo is seen as an attractive alternative to traditional tracking technologies, such as GPS/GNSS, Wi-Fi, and BlueTooth (BLE).
ID-Pal, an award-winning Irish RegTech company, eliminates the complexity, cost, timelines, and risk associated with regulatory compliance by delivering a multi-layered “Saas+” identity verification solution. ID-Pal is simple to use, easy to integrate and instantly customisable to the specific needs of any business.
Mason Hayes & Curran Financial Services Partner Liam Flynn commented “As Ireland’s leading technology and financial services law firm, we are proud to sponsor the Irish Times Innovation Award for IT and Fintech and to support and showcase the fantastic innovations we’re seeing in these dynamic sectors.”
Congratulating the shortlisted companies, Financial Services Partner Rowena Fitzgerald said “The calibre of entries this year has been exceptional and this is testament to the fact that, despite the pandemic, innovation in the Irish tech industry continues to thrive. All three companies on the shortlist have demonstrated remarkable originality and creativity and we wish them the very best of luck in the next stage of the judging process.”
