A Look at 2016 at Afrisoft
- Monday, 05 December 2016
2016 has been a year of growth at Afrisoft. Our team has expanded, we have assisted both new customer and existing customers, developed amazing new partnerships, and received some excellent feedback.
2016 has been a year of growth at Afrisoft. Our team has expanded to 26 staff members with three new team members in key roles.
The entire Afrisoft Team would like to wish you a happy and safe holiday season.
This year has been a productive one for client implementations. We have assisted four new customers in the grain trading and milling sectors to implement the AGRIS system. We also implemented our newest offering, DataSwitch, for three clients.
TransLution™ is still our leading solution with 24 new implementations across 12 industries, three provinces and in two countries during 2016.
In addition to several significant expansions for existing clients, we have assisted 20 companies with their TransLution™ upgrades for use with SYSPRO 7.
We would like to thank all of our clients for their loyal support and welcome our new clients to the Afrisoft family.
We have developed two new partnerships this year. We are the local distributor of DataSwitch from K3 Group in the UK and we have worked with Scheduling Solutions to enhance the TransLution™ extending Labour Tracking functionality to the product.
Our team attended and participated in several events to showcase these new partnerships.
We joined Scheduling Solutions at the Mining Indaba which took place at Nasrec from 12 to 16 September 2016.

More about TransLution™ Labour Tracking
We have worked closely with our clients throughout the year to resolve operational and production inefficiencies, tailoring software solutions to work within existing factory processes. As part of this process we have received some wonderful feedback.
“Checking and returns are working much better. Before we had to double check everything on the system. The new way is accurate and faster because there is less guessing.” – Fana Maswanganye, Tevo.
“Setup can take time but if you make use of the system properly, it’s worth every second. The TransLution™™ system gives me a much better grip on what’s happening on the factory floor. It’s not the kind of information you could have unless you were able to personally be at every machine during every step of the manufacturing process.” – Manie Paulsen, Production Foreman, Melco
“We have learned a number of things as the rollout happened and have evolved the system to work around us.”
“The staff have been very enthusiastic about the process. The staggered rollout created a level of status among checkers – they wanted to be the first to be upgraded to a computerised system and approached it with great eagerness.” – Mignonne Smith, Financial Manager, Splashworks (PTY) Ltd.
“The ability to track and validate designs in each point during the process is invaluable. The success of document tracking influences the success of production of our final products.” – Devon Dippenaar, Export Sales Administrator, Melco.
