We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with Fujitsu PFU, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu (Japan). PFU offers a broad portfolio of document scanners for professional personal, desktop, workgroup, high-volume production, networked environments and document imaging software solutions.

As of today, CoCre8 is a distributor of image scanner equipment into South Africa as well as English-speaking Africa, where we will focus on large strategic opportunities within the public and private sectors. CoCre8 has an extensive reach into these regions through an established partner landscape and the image scanner range complements the extensive product and solution range that we already have to offer.

Formerly Fujitsu South Africa, CoCre8 Technology Solutions has transformed its operating model within South Africa. The South African investment consortium, which previously held 25% plus one share of the company, has acquired the balance of the Fujitsu shareholding, creating a 100% locally owned entity as of 1 April 2020. CoCre8 achieved a level two broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) rating and looks after Fujitsu’s interests in South Africa and English-speaking Africa by being the exclusive Fujitsu OEM representative for Africa.

The vast range of image scanners will provide our customers with solutions based on their unique requirements, whether high-quality scanning solutions for standard or advanced applications. We will also be able to offer entry-level scanning solutions for budget conscious organisations wanting to accelerate their digital transformation journey.

We can help our customers and partners with their day-to-day challenges that might include:

  • Scanning and routing documents to automate processes and streamline workflows;
  • Providing a document capturing solution to enable the digitalisation of business;
  • Overcoming the problems of legacy, basic document capture process solutions that do not meet requirements; and
  • A lack of time, IT expertise and resources to evaluate, develop and implement a solution.

The Fujitsu scanners are well known in the market, with almost 85% of government entities making use of these devices renowned for quality and reliability. Other attributes include:

  • Professional premium look and feel;
  • Light and durable;
  • Options and varieties to cover all requirements; and
  • Price competitive.

Some industry specific use cases would include the following:

  • Healthcare: Patient records, claims processing, order entry, (lab, etc), clinical data repositories, pharmacy/prescription
  • Education: Student records, financial aid, student housing, grants/endowments
  • Government: Historical records, parking management, compliance documents, etc
