"You never lose in business, either you win or you learn.
Mighty oaks from little acorns grow is apt when thinking of the progress Veri has made over the last 5 years. After seeing the pain that training providers had to endure to ensure quality and compliance, Ann Marie had a light bulb moment. The key was digital transformation and the concept of Veri was born. As a female founder there have been numerous challenges and changes made but the end result is a world class product that works. Thanks to Ann Marie’s agile thinking and her team’s natural ability to pivot, the company is going from strength to strength.
The software is just the beginning…
IITD National Training Awards
In 2019 Veri won a prestigious National Award with the Irish Institute of Training & Development Awards. It was a David and Goliath Story leading to Veri and their partners Impact Training beating off competition from the likes of E-Shop World, Aldi and Ulster Bank.
The award was for the Best Consultancy Project. The collaboration meant our software allowed for seamless and efficient recording and tracking of all training data, meaning the trainer could spend more quality time on training.
Moving to a digital product was not requirement for the market sector Impact Training operates within, but their decision to do so shows the high regard they and the IITD judges hold for this innovative product.
The purpose of the IITD National Training Awards is to promote excellence, best practice and innovation in Training and Learning & Development and to highlight the importance of this area in today’s business climate.

We were crowed the winners and with that joined a stellar alumni of past winners including Food Cloud, Jobbio, Logograb; Arklu and Beats Medical, all of whom have gone on to achieve huge success. As a result of our win we received €10,000 in AdWords credit and were eligible for the Google Cloud Platform for Startups which comes with $100,000 Google Cloud Credits.
