NIABT Gets To The Heart Of Core Systems

On Friday 27 April,   members of the Northern Ireland Assembly and Business Trust visited Core Systems Ltd in North Belfast. Organised as part of the NIABTs popular education programme, this seminar provided both MLAs and business members with an opportunity to learn more about the work and services provided by this important local business.

Core Systems are leading-edge experts in Identity Management Solutions for high security facilities both here in Northern Ireland and further afield. Patricia O’Hagan, Managing Director of the company provided members with a fascinating insight into the background of the organisation and  the work they do, as well as allowing time for questions from the floor.

Following the presentation, members travelled to the Young Offenders Centre at Hydebank, where they received a tour of the site as well as getting an opportunity to see Core’s biometric systems in action.

Whilst at Hydebank, the NIABT delegation also had a chance to meet with Opportunity Youth to hear about the supporting role they provide for all who come into custody at Hydebank Prison and the Young Offenders Centre.

The NIABT organises a range of relevant and regular educational seminars, all of which give members a unique insight into the important and exciting innovations led by Northern Ireland business and industry.
