Professional & Dedicated

We are impressed with the level of professional and dedicated IT-services of SO. We had to swallow the bitter fruits of co-called IT-specialists with no or hardly any work ethics… who did not care about the well-being of your business… who were more interested in selling than servicing. 

Henz Louw – Director, Louw Cronje

Case Studies


We designed the website for the financial planner community within Old Mutual. It was custom built with business tools, online learning (e-learning) courses and digital material for workshops. The primary tools allow businesses to determine their strengths and weaknesses in all areas, thereby providing an overview of the strength of the business.
