Established in Limerick, Elive Internet Business Solutions have been providers of online services to clients worldwide for over 17 years. In terms of these services Elive offer everything from domain registration, webpage hosting and anti-spam solutions to server management and software development. As Elive manage their own network and servers, they can respond to any requests and technical difficulties their clients might have almost immediately. Personal support is central to their service.
Speaking to the Managing Director of Elive, Seán Ryan, he tells me about the continuous developments which are taking place within the company and explains what really separates Elive from their competitors, “Our personal relationships with our clients are of the utmost importance to us. Our service is one on one. We don’t believe in automated phone systems. We love to get to know our clients and tailor our services to their specific needs.” This personal approach to each and every client means that they can develop customised solutions that can rarely be developed by most other hosting companies in Ireland. Sean also stresses the importance of giving back and supporting those that need help, “At Elive we offer free domain registration to charities and community groups. We want to do our part for those organisations involved in supporting the greater community in which we live and operate.”
One of Elive’s many clients is ILoveLimerick.com, a creative project highlighting everything positive about Limerick with a focus on artists, charities and community organisations. Richard Lynch, Managing Director of ILoveLimerick.com, tells me about his experiences working with Elive, “Before we availed of Elive’s services, we were working with a Dublin-based web-provider. We were having constant on-going issues with our website and were always kept waiting for someone to get back to us to solve the problem. I got sick of listening to an automated machine giving me my options. I was recommended Elive through the Limerick Chamber of Commerce, who are also one of their clients, and I have never looked back. Now when I have an issue, the solution is one phone call away. The team at Elive are so friendly and have made a huge contribution to the success of our website. I also think it is important that local companies support one another and stick together during these recessionary times. I would highly recommend a move to Elive to avail of their services. We would genuinely be lost without them.”
