Leading from the Front

Ergo is one of the most successful IT services companies in Ireland. Our ability to tailor solutions to each client’s unique requirements has been our calling card for over 20 years. What’s changed is the scope and diversity of what we do. Through business-first engagements, we are increasingly focused on leveraging leading-edge technologies that help clients on their digital transformation journeys. 

We started out in 1993 with eight people supplying print components. Today, we work with the some of the largest companies in Ireland, delivering enterprise-wide solutions that drive productivity and profitability.

Over the years we have mirrored the seismic shifts in the way IT solutions are delivered and consumed, constantly upskilling our experts and reinventing our role in the IT value chain to give our clients the support and expertise they need to stay competitive and succeed. 

The milestones in our development (below) not only reflect the way our company has evolved, but also the way the way the entire IT landscape has been transformed. We’ve made it our business to embrace change and lead from the front. 

Our Evolution

About Us

Founded - John Purdy and Tim Sheehy founded Ergo, a two-man company selling toner cartridges for printers. John believed there was a gap in the market for a more customer-focused print supplier, an ethos that would remain core to the company throughout its history.

1993
About Us

Professional Print Services - Ergo signals its ambitions to innovate by selling JetForm, early workflow software that gave businesses a taste for more efficient document processes. We grow to eight employees and move to new premises in Phibsborough.

1996
About Us

Managed Print Services - In a landmark deal with Microsoft, Ergo wins a Managed Print Service contract, not just a first for Ergo but the first of its kind in Ireland. We set course on a journey where the same Ergo ethos will be applied many types of Managed Service engagement: identify customer pain points and solve them.
