PaySpace appoints new MD to steer ship
Cloud-based human resources (HR) and payroll solutions firm PaySpace has appointed Sandra Crous as its new MD.
In her new position, Crous will be responsible for the performance of the company, as dictated by the board's overall strategy.
Headquartered in Johannesburg, PaySpace offers streamlined payroll management solutions to organisations of all sizes and industries, with a footprint in 40 African countries.
According to PaySpace, Crous has a wealth of experience in the industry, having made a name for herself in the payroll sector, driven by a passion for technology, making her an ideal candidate for the position.
Before joining PaySpace, she had a 32-year run at Sage SA, where she fulfilled diverse roles, including sales director, later taking up the helm as VP for midmarket Africa and Middle East.
Over this period, she oversaw significant revenue growth in the entire mid-market segment, augmenting the company's client base in the Middle East, and managing both direct and indirect sales teams across the region.
Crous has also held various positions in the education sector, most recently as CEO of both Damelin Online and the London College of International Business Studies.
Her key responsibility will be increasing the business's market share throughout Africa, where PaySpace already serves over 4 100 clients across 65 industries.
"Digitisation of payroll and HR processes has been so much a part of my career from the very beginning, and the thought of helping to innovate on a cloud-based, tech-first product really got me excited," explains Crous.
"PaySpace has proven itself as a software supplier with successful statutory legislation across Africa, meaning that legislative compliance is assured, no matter where you are situated. This product caters to every market, and that's what growing African economies need."
With more African businesses embracing digitisation and doing more cross-border business than ever, the legislative and compliance hurdles faced can be a serious risk, notes PaySpace.
