4Sight Holdings subsidiary AccTech Systems named Sage Cloud Partner of the Year
This award category, the first of its kind by Sage, reaffirms that AccTech continues to be the leading cloud business enabler for ERP solutions in SA.
AccTech Systems (AccTech) has again been recognised by Sage South Africa (Sage) for its innovative “taking Sage to the cloud” enterprise resource planning (ERP) offerings at the recent Sage Partner Awards for 2019.
In a new award category, AccTech received the accolade of being the first Sage Cloud Partner of the Year. The award was presented to partners which have shown exceptional growth and innovation, and provided continuous value to the Sage community in the area of cloud services. This follows AccTech’s recognition as the Sage MEA Partner of the Year in 2018.
As organisations across SA embark on their “journey to the cloud”, the adoption and embracing of cloud-computing technologies and infrastructure has increased. This has accelerated the migration of services such as ERP to the cloud, which takes advantage of the flexibility, security, scalability and affordability that cloud computing provides.
Identifying this trend early, and in conjunction with technology giant Microsoft, AccTech created the Sage-on-Azure offering, which allows organisations to gain the full benefit of cloud, including managed services, without disrupting current business processes.
This year, AccTech is celebrating its 25-year partnership with Sage. As a Sage Platinum Partner, this recent award reaffirms that AccTech continues to be the leading cloud business enabler for ERP solutions in SA. “If it is not in the cloud, it did not happen,” emphasised Tertius Zitzke, acting CEO of 4Sight Holdings, after receiving the award.
“Our 25-year journey with Sage has been incredible. When we started, we lived in the world of MS-DOS. Now, our partners are operating their businesses almost fully from cloud infrastructure. However, the ride has only just begun, and we look forward to continuing our journey with Sage,” said Zitzke.
“Our unique approach to cloud is one of the major contributing factors to winning this prestigious award,” said Morne Swanepoel, Managing Director, AccTech.
“This approach is built on an understanding of best practice and proven methodologies that businesses need to follow when transforming into Industry 4.0 organisations. The offering, coupled with the power of Microsoft Azure, has allowed us to bring this innovative approach with Sage to the ERP market and partners,” he said.
Having spent the past two years establishing this offering in the market, AccTech is enabling businesses in SA and on the continent to succeed in their journeys to cloud, while leveraging trusted ERP and the reliability of cloud. “Organisations can now safely look to the future and start consuming the benefits of what cloud and cloud services can offer them,” said Swanepoel.
As part of 4Sight Holdings, AccTech is uniquely positioned to empower partners and customers across industries on their journey to the cloud. “With AccTech and partners like Sage and Microsoft, we are extremely excited about what the future holds for all our customers”, commented Willie Ackerman, Chief Sales Officer for 4Sight Holdings.
“The opportunity for our industrial customers in particular to leverage our numerous Industry 4.0 offerings, as the worlds of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) converge, positions us as the digitalisation transformation partner of choice”, concluded Ackerman.
