A Brief History
When I started programming games for our first computer a ZX spectrum back in 1983 at the age of 6 I knew I had a future in technology. After joining the job market in earnest and trying my hand at various posts around South Africa I gained just enough IT experience to be dangerous and headed out for greener pastures.
In 1999 I went over to London and after a few months of contracting in the IT market I joined a .com start-up which had just raised seed funding and had only 5 staff. Over the next 8 years the company raised several million pounds and grew to over 50 employees - we had a lot of fun playing with all the best toys and building an enterprise level network along the way.
After the intense pressure of the London .com environment I needed a break, and so I loaded all my belongings into a Landcruiser and travelled home across Europe and Africa for a year.
Now settled back in South Africa I operate several businesses in the IT industry and focus on building and integrating systems for my clients across Africa.

Having an in-depth understanding of all things IT I can provide holistic advice on solutions to improve your business.
I help my clients with communications on a global scale using whatever technology is available be it Fibre networks, VoIP, Sattelite, Wireless or Carrier Pidgeon.
I have designed and developed systems for many applications from ERP, CRM, Retail through to Smartphone Apps that integrate with them.
I am more paranoid than most having been involved in a Security company for 30 years, this has made a natural extension into the IT Field.
Simon dragged our retail operation into the 21st century and made sure it was a smooth transition, thank you!
We have managed to modernise our operation thanks to the new ERP system which Simon has developed for us
