In the space of 10 years or so the way we do business has changed beyond recognition. What’s more, the speed of change appears to be increasing. Nothing stands still.

When we launched Big Red Cloud in 2012 we did so as we believed there would be a big swing to cloud-based software services. We were right, and today we support over 4,000 customers on our cloud-based accounts platform.

Today, over 70% of the Irish population or 2.3 million people are using smartphones as their main mobile device. With this rise in smartphone penetration, we also realised the need to service this emerging market. We went out and asked our Cloud customers what features were most important to them in a Big Red Cloud mobile app.

So, we designed and built an app to help our customers to be more productive when on the move or away from the office.

Invoice on the go.

The Big Red Cloud App in a nutshell:

  • Creating and sending invoices with the Big Red Cloud App is simple.
  • Just click ‘send invoice’ and the invoice is emailed there and then to your customer for approval and payment.
  • Check existing customer accounts for overdue invoices and ‘click to call’ or ‘click to send’ an email reminder.
  • It backs up in real time to your Big Red Cloud account, saving you time and more importantly avoids invoice drift.

Marc O'Dwyer

After completing a Graduate program in Marketing, Marc’s impressive sales career began at Allied Irish Banks, Pitney Bowes and Panasonic where he received numerous Irish and European sales performance awards and consistently exceeded targets and expectations. In 1992, Marc’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to set up his own business, Irish International Sales (IIS). Initially, this company was a reseller for Take 5 Accounts and Payroll software. Within four years, IIS became the largest reseller of Take 5 in Ireland, acquiring four other Take 5 resellers. He also found time to set up two mobile phone shops under the Cellular World brand and a web design company offering website design services for small businesses. In 2001, he bought the majority share in a small Irish software business, Big Red Book. At that time, the company was losing money. The company became profitable within two months, and Marc then acquired a payroll company to compliment Big Red Books Accounting products. In 2003, IIS were appointed as Channel Partners with SAP for their new SME product, SAP Business One. Marc sold his Take 5 business and concentrated on developing this new market for SAP As a result, by 2007, IIS was recognised as the largest Channel Partner for SAP in EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa). In 2008, the IIS Sales Manager bought the Company from Marc in an MBO. He launched Big red cloud in June 2012, the online version of big red book, to date the company successfully converts 59% of trials into sales and the number of customers is growing rapidly. Marc continues to run both Big Red Book and Big Red Cloud which now support 75,000 businesses.
