Ikusasa is recognized among the 2020 finalists
As part of the effort to change the dynamic of the companies reach, IKUSASA entered the Nedbank Ignite your business competition to cater for its need for cash-flow, to secure resources and to maintain licences with OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). This factor has been a tremendous set back for the company’s growth as cash-flow is a mandatory element for the sustainability of all enterprises types in the corporate world.
Ikusasa has done a decent job of staying above par in the industry as overtime, South Africa has come to see a demand in the technological space, and thus the training procurement for these spaces. Ikusasa serves as the mediator between clients and their ICT (Information and Communications Technology) requirements so as to further the skill set of the ordinary IT professional.
The competition seeks to assist entrepreneurs with an ‘edge’, who are able to ‘navigate’ and propel forward the business agenda through this current COVID-19 pandemic storm. As a captain is to a ship, the importance of having a continual vision that extends beyond crises was crucial to the judging process of the competition. The winners will be part of a business incubation program that will engage the fundamentals of the company’s market weight and directive, along with a prized cash injection of R20 000.
Thulisile Dlamini, CEO and Chairperson of Ikusasa Technology Solutions
The Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector has proved to be the backbone of many economies, both developed and developing. With that realization many companies in the past five years have been making a lot of investment into the sector, from new Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) to postal services companies and Television and radio broadcasters. However, the sector needs to adapt to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) that is bringing new technologies, which means business models, government decisions and other choices will have to transform due to a new set of challenges and uncertainties.
Though perhaps with the confidence of technology taking over, and the current winners having been announced, it remains an honor to have been selected as finalists which has already proven to create awareness for the company in many ways. Though we believe Ikusasa fit the bill in the instance of tangibility because of the services it provides, as far as the competition is concerned, thanks goes to Nedbank and the Business Ignite initiative for allowing the company to be part of such an inspiring opportunity.
