Swift’s Financial Manager, Jannie de Kock, says: “Deteriorating support for our previous payroll system meant we could no longer rely on it. Implementing Sage 300 People gave us the opportunity to replace the old software with a more flexible solution that better meets the needs of our industry and that can integrate seamlessly with our custom-developed and packaged software. This means we can now move to a fully integrated environment, minimising human error and maximising productivity, accuracy and profit. With the new system, there are no limits to our growth potential from a systems point of view.”

De Kock adds Sage 300 People’s customisability, scalability and integration capabilities made it the natural choice. Sage 300 People gives a company the peace of mind of knowing it has a world-class system that can make life easier while complying with the relevant local laws and regulations.

“As an owner managed group ourselves, we knew we would have direct access to the decision-makers when we partnered with AWCape. We could get the best service without the corporate red tape,” says De Kock.  

“AWCape’s status as a preferred Sage business partner gave us peace of mind. As a team, they go out of their way to assist and understand your business. They ensure the changeover is as smooth as possible and are committed to successful implementation and post-implementation support.”
