A business software solution for you.

Business software

Database design and bespoke software on local or remote platform.

We analyse your business needs and help you decide on a software solution. Bespoke software is often a lengthy and therefore expensive option which requires extensive analysis.  Very often software already exists which can be tweaked to fit your business needs. We have often decided to leave the legacy system in place and use the data in a modern reporting format. Data interchange is relatively easy.

If you need a customised system or module we use  appropriate tools to design and write software for your specific needs.

Online stores

We have developed considerable expertise in providing online stores. Despite all the claims in the marketplace, online stores are not simple to setup.  Much planning needs to take place and there is daily housekeeping which is as demanding as running a physical shop.

Enterprise business system

We have chosen a system called OpenERP (also called Odoo) as an business enterprise system at any level. It offers 30 modules as standard, including sales, purchasing, inventory, human resources and project management.  All the modules are contained in a cohesive framework.

Captain Sidney name?

My great-grandfather arrived in Durban in 1870 at the age of 19. He had a courageous and adventurous spirit as well as a knack of doing business.

He built a trading store from felled trees and clay on the banks of the remote Umzimkulu River . Then he rode on horseback to Durban, fording the many rivers on the 80 kilometer trip and sleeping under the stars. He brought an ox-wagon filled with goods back from Durban and traded very successfully as he was the only store in a 60 kilometer radius.

The tools we have today are very different but essentially the trading experience follows the same principles.

You have a product range to sell. You need customers to see your products and purchase them.  We can build and maintain your own online store.
