Intellicom, based in the DCU Innovation Campus in Finglas, has been selected by Merrion Vaults to work with them on their latest safe deposit facility in Liverpool.

The state of the art, purpose-built vault is located in the famous Royal Liver building in the Waterfront district.

This is the fourth facility opened by Merrion Vaults, following on from sites in Dublin, Newcastle and Glasgow. There are also ambitious plans to open in a number of other cities in the near future.

Merrion Vaults opened its first facility in Dublin in 2013, providing safe deposit box services to businesses and individuals to store valued items.

Seamus Fahy, co-founder of Merrion Vaults commenting on the origins of the business said, “Banks traditionally provided safe deposit boxes but, as branches have closed, they can no longer deliver.

"This is a trend we see reflected in many countries" he continued.

"From house deeds to family heirlooms or, increasingly, flash drives and crypto currency codes, the need for secure storage remains and we are building the business as local communities demand.”

Intellicom’s solution in Liverpool mirrors communication services already delivered to the other group sites and is fully interconnected with all Merrion Vaults’ other facilities.

“We have created a total communications package that is delivered seamlessly across all countries Merrion Vaults operate in," said Neil Wisdom, managing director of Intellicom.

“[The system] has been designed with functionality and security front of mind and with the ability to quickly deploy another office location, almost out of the box, to facilitate their ambitious growth plans.”

In advance of the official opening, Intellicom set up a local phone number to the Merrion Vaults facility for marketing purposes. All calls to this number were answered with an appropriate local greeting.

Fahy highlights this as a key element of the opening of the new facility. “Before we had the doors open at the new Liverpool vaults, we had been building up local interest and business," he explained.
