Belfast tech company receives accreditation from UK Ministry of Justice

SyncNI – 16th December 2016

Belfast-based software development company, Core Systems (NI) Ltd, achieved an important milestone this week with the news that the company’s rehabilitative software solution, Direct2inmate, has been accredited for use in the secure estate by the UK Ministry of Justice.

Direct2inmate provides users with secure access to a range of applications including electronic messaging, restricted internet access, shopping, meal ordering, facility requests and information services.

The cloud-hosted solution, which is delivered via Wi-Fi enabled tablets for use within prisons and secure environments, will go live in the first site this Saturday, 17th December.

This MOJ accreditation adds to a number of other important milestones for Core Systems recently, including being shortlisted for a UX UK Award, recognised by the ICPA Correctional Excellence Awards Program, and awarded a place on the UK Government’s Digital Services Framework. The company’s CEO, Patricia O’Hagan, was also shortlisted for a Business Person of the Year award at the 2016 Aer Lingus Viscount Awards earlier this year.

Core Systems is also growing its team, and is in the process of recruiting a new Software Engineer at its Belfast headquarters.

Recognising the significance of the company’s accreditation by the UK Ministry of Justice, Patricia O’Hagan, CEO at Core Systems, said:“This is a key milestone for the company, and a fantastic achievement for everyone involved in the project. The project is already generating a huge amount of industry interest – I am excited to see what the next few months bring for Core Systems.”
