Dovetail Business Solutions in accordance with its Canadian partner HighJump hosted a successful and informative Warehouse Management System (WMS) Roadshow for 2014 on March 12 at the Bryanston Country Club in Sandton, Johannebsurg.
The event hosted an impressive 75 attendees as well as members of the press. Included in the agenda was Keynote speaker Dr. Martyn Davies- a world-renowned analyst who spoke about the opportunities and areas for growth in Africa, what made companies successful and how logistics companies could gear themselves for success.
Dr Davies’ presentation focused on the following objectives:
- South Africa is the “Japan of Africa” – Slow Growth but Great companies
- The strategic opportunity for “South Africa Inc.” in the region is indeed excellent
- “Africa Rising” is about consumer capturing & consolidation
- Countries are less important than demographics – A case of “Countries vs. Clusters”
- Regional Integration vs. disintegration for economic survival
Following Dr Davies presentation, HighJump’ general manager Joe Couto, 2014 Pro-to-Know, and HighJump sales engineer Colin Hay presented helpful Warehouse Management tactics and demonstrated the highlights of the WMS software.
Further, Llewellyn Chane from Dovetail’s hardware supplier Dell gave a presentation on the future of mobile computing and the business case for tablets in African enterprises followed by an impressive testimonial from long standing customer Value Freightpak, part of the Value Group, whose WMS super-user Cherylene Myburgh gave an account of Freightpak’s experience with the HighJump Warehouse Management System from conception to implementation as well as the support from Dovetail enjoyed afterwards and the success achieved within the company’s operations so far.
