Final Year Business Plan Prize

The prize for Best Business Plan developed by the 2008/09 final year students of B.Sc. (Information Technology) degree programe and sponsored by the discipline of Information Technology was awarded to Andrew Regan and Nathan Shaughnessy. Andrew from Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon and Nathan from Oranmore, Co. Galway developed their idea of an SMS Hosting Service. The idea was an SMS hosting service “Future Order Systems” for the independent fast food/delicatessen sector. This service would allow smaller retail outlets benefit from a professionally managed independently hosted SMS service that would help them compete with the larger franchises and also allow customised marketing services. Their course co-ordinator was Dr. Hugh Melvin. The picture shows Professor Gerard Lyons congratulating both Andrew and Nathan at the IT Prize Giving ceremony on Friday October, 2009.
