Maredi Technologies is a finalist at the Vision 2030 Awards: SA's future makers
The annual Vision 2030 Awards have announced their 2018 finalists!
The awards recognise the achievements and success stories of organisations, enterprises and individuals that are actively demonstrating alignment to the government's Nine-Point Plan to boost economic growth and achieve the milestones set by the National Development Plan (NDP).
The overwhelming number of nominations for the various categories of the awards casts a positive glow on the future of South Africa and showcases the commitment of both the public and private sector to the NDP.
"We have the right formula to be the suitable partner to the government on this journey," says Maredi Thema, CEO of Maredi Technologies. "As our motto says: 'Your ICT partner of choice.'
"We have the right calibre of leadership. We have the right culture and we have the mentality to grow together with the country.
"Our product portfolio provides end-to end solutions in the ICT industry where many companies our size would not necessarily be able to supply similar solutions. We operate in three segments of ICT, which gives us an opportunity to be able to provide these end-to end solutions. We also have R&D departments which focuses on improving our products portfolio. The R&D team is also looking at developing our own products from first principle instead of just of modifying what exists for reselling third party products. This gives us an advantage as we are able to provide customised solutions to our customers."
With categories such as the Education Award sponsored by the Human Resource Development Council, Infrastructure Development Award, SMME Award and the Driver for Change Award, the Vision 2030 Awards are all-encompassing when it comes to recognising the best of the best when it comes to championing the National Development Plan.
Leading by example, the winners showcased by the awards will inspire their sector peers, and stakeholders nationwide, to pledge commitment to the NDP, not in words alone, but in actions that move the nation forward.
The awards, and the accompanying Vision 2030 Summit, will draw together a host of business and government leaders to have crucial representation from all key decision-makers because it is only through extensive public-private partnerships, we believe, that South Africa, by 2030, will have become the country envisioned by the NDP.
"The Vision 2030 Awards and Summit help connect business and government, by identifying and sharing best practices of leading companies and organisations that have implemented successful development and investment projects and can clearly demonstrate success with measurable returns to stakeholders in relation to projects aligned to the NDP," says Ryland Fisher, Editorial Director at Topco Media.
The winners will be announced and celebrated on 21 June 2018 at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni.
