Sage 300 People positions Swift Group for growth

AWCape was appointed by Swift Holdings Group to supply and implement Sage 300 People, and to integrate key HR & Payroll processes with Swift's accounting system to provide seamless integration between labour project costings and the general ledger. AWCape is a business partner to Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions.

Headquartered in Cape Town, Swift is a provider of outsourced temporary staffing, payroll and skills training & development services. Swift Holding Group supports individuals and companies with customised, confidential and professional Human Resources Management services. 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 is no limits to our growth potential from a systems point of view."

De Kock added that 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," said 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."

Says Gerhard Hartman, Regional Director, Medium Business, Sage Africa & Middle East: "More and more South African companies are looking to integrate modern, agile, and cost-effective HR & Payroll solutions that streamline their business processes and enhance employee engagement. With powerful HR & payroll features, Sage 300 People answers their need with an accurate solution that is secure, flexible and intuitive to use."
