Innovation drives tradition at Irish limousine company as the company creates 35 new jobs and new app

The debate on how to get the mix right between technology and people rages on; but that’s exactly what a 40 year old Dublin chauffeur company has done, as it announces 35 new jobs and a new APP today by Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald.

Those familiar with Devine’s Worldwide Chauffeur Services will know them as the company who drive the world’s biggest entertainers and performers when they travel to Ireland. They have driven everyone from the Rolling Stones and Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. Today they continue their world-class service driving the CEOs and business travellers who come to Ireland to invest and build commerce around the world. They were also selected as the company to serve the Queen of England on her visit to Ireland in 2011.

Today, Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald, Minster for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, officially opened the brand new 10,000 square foot offices in Santry, as they announced the creation of 35 new jobs to support their focus on customer service. The company will launch new technology on December 4th that will allow passengers to make reservations on an app and watch as their vehicle arrives via smart phone (not unlike the old Halo app). The app is the first of its kind in Europe and is for those looking for a premium passenger experience when travelling for business with enhanced duty of care (all the drivers undergo major vetting and background checks and are trained in safety).

“Our business is grounded in convenience, safety and discretion” states Colin Devine, CEO of Devine’s. “Our passengers are time sensitive so the technology will compliment our best in class reservation and pick up experience. It’s about enhancing the white glove service experience with just enough technology” As for the mention of discretion when asked for a snippet of the stories of the rich and famous the answer is “we treat starts like they are ordinary people and ordinary people like they are stars”…. and that is what kept people coming back for almost 40 years.
