Catalyst Invent 2019 Finalists!

Invent 2019 is an annual competition ran by Catalyst and supported by Bank of Ireland UK that digs deep to find the emerging talent of entrepreneurs who have came up with new and exciting products and business ventures.

 The 9-month long process challenges innovators, start-ups and entrepreneurs to showcase their products off as being the ‘creme de la creme’. On 23rd May 2019 the semi-finalists had to perfect a 3-minute pitch with a supporting presentation and then answer questions from the ‘dragons-den’ style judging panel. The official final will be taking place on 10th October 2019.

 Obbi Solutions Ltd, current finalists in the Enterprise Software category of the prestigious Catalyst Invent 2019 competition, is marking its place in the world of new technology. The solution which is customisable to any business, is currently helping companies in a range of sectors including manufacturing, engineering, retail, hospitality and healthcare with a number of industry leading companies including globally renowned, Decora Blind Systems in Lisburn. 

Obbi’s founding team have over 50 years combined operational experience in manufacturing, healthcare & hospitality. They have each experienced significant pain and frustration relating to an integrated solution to multiple processes such as training, compliance & health & safety, facility management or accident reporting. Despite extensive global research, they could not find an appropriate solution to this problem, so they took matters into their own hands and created Obbi.

Organisations are facing more challenges than ever before, from staff well-being and engagement, the pressure for increased quality and productivity and even the struggle of increased bureaucracy and legislation. Obbi combines a solution for all of these pressure points into one easy to use cloud-based platform that can both pre-empt problems and also provide the relevant information to fix them.
