You owe it to yourself to make informed purchase decisions. We’re trying to keep things as simple as possible for you. We know some people want all the details, and we respect them for this…
Please note: We are a specialized company providing IT and internet solutions to small business and home users. You will also find our products deployed in state agencies and large corporations in South Africa.
As a consulting firm we don’t operate as a typical store-front retailer, we are re-sellers of new IT hardware on behalf of our vendors – and yes we sell directly to the public. We order on demand to provide complete IT and web solutions to our clients.
If you are a new client, please do NOT visit our physical location to purchase software or hardware “off the shelf”. Our physical address is for consulting, sales administration and order collections only – and only by appointment. We’ll gladly accept your phone calls, faxes and e-mail sales enquiries in order to help you find the right solution for your needs..
