Profile of Female Entrepreneur:
Sandra Maguire of EduBills
Name: Sandra Maguire
Company: Edubills.ie – Online payment and ordering system for schools and parents
EduBills was founded in 2010 by Managing Director Sandra Maguire, who came up with the idea while working in a primary school.
A lot of time regularly needed to be spent on dealing with payments from parents. At the same time, parents had the bother of sending multiple payments to the school throughout the year.
With a background in financial services and computers, Sandra was convinced there had to be a better way.
Sandra has been featured in the Irish Times and interviewed on Newstalks Saturday Sit In show with George Hook* and also featured in Business Plus magazine.
