Exciting news from Channel Mechanics! We are thrilled to announce our triumphant win at the ITAG Excellence Awards 2023. These awards, designed to spotlight and honor remarkable innovations and technological strides within the West of Ireland, have recognized Channel Mechanics for its outstanding achievements.

Channel Mechanics secured the top spot in the Digital Project category by showcasing our collaboration with Cisco. Our groundbreaking initiative, the “Talent Bridge Matching Engine,” aims to support Cisco’s channel ecosystem in finding talent. It achieves this by automating the connection between Networking Academy students and the Cisco network of partners worldwide. This, in turn, creates global employment opportunities by helping skilled candidates, with a passion for technology, find jobs.

Powered by Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Power BI Reporting, the Talent Bridge Matching Engine exemplifies Channel Mechanics’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of technological possibilities and contributing to cutting-edge advancements in the digital landscape.


Speaking about receiving the Digital Project and Innovation Award, Channel Mechanics CTO commented:


Working on this project alongside the team has been incredibly thrilling. Having the opportunity to leverage Machine Learning and AI to facilitate the connection between job seekers and job opportunities was immensely fulfilling.
