It is not just adequate any longer for your business to have a Location Based Services (LBS) or Marketing strategy.
LBS is an extensive investment that needs time to build behavior and profiling, then sanitised to identify true value. When spending large amounts on WiFi, there needs to be a component for immediate return for actual value.
We are able to provide bespoke solutions that could add significant value to your business to drive revenue through a quick turnaround on identifying exact markets, then to compliment it with focused campaigns. There are business now adopting a LBS or BLE strategy, however, we can introduce an entire 'Basket of Goods' that is comprehensively suited to create multiple propositions which would gear your business both for now and the next several years through a phased approach.
We do not solely focus on ICT, but more so focus on Business Capability.
We invest time into understanding of the business, then look at Strategic Enablement through ICT, as to how their are benefits to be realized not only around ICT, but upwards into the rest of the business. We are Innovation Technology Specialists; through understanding both ICT and Business itself, we are able to not look at ICT as an independent item, but see ICT as an enabler into the business as an investment, instead of as an expense to the business.
Speaking to our capability through mentioning a single reference: We have developed the 5 Year ICT Strategy for 29 x Municipalities around Western Cape, as part of an SLA we've needed to deliver on for Western Cape Local Government.
First and foremost; Data Backups are just not enough. If you are a company solely having only standard Backups in place, or believing - either by yourself or being convinced by your IT Provider - that this is all you need, then you have a problem.
Apart from the norms of undertaking Backups for Disaster Management/Recovery, the threats of today are far beyond the norms. Most threats these days are from inside your Network; users, employees, guests, even you. You require Data, Business Continuity/Protection and Security.
Within this Vertical, our experience has seen us implement Platforms for many Businesses, the most expansive being at ARMSCOR and at the Square Kilometer Array (SKA, Global Telescope Project). We are Simplified Backup.

However, understanding the insights derived from big data and how it can drive true value is where many fail. Engage us to ensure you do not make the same mistake with either over or under positioning.
The amount of mobile users that would adopt new business/market platforms on their smart device and embrance change and would be open to it.
The amount of mobile users that would embrace change, but would however not understand the best use of it. Simply because of lack in understanding of it.
The amount of mobile users that would be left using the new business/market platform, which may not translate into the intended business value.
We believe its always best to under-promise and over deliver. Not just a sentiment to what we believe, but rather so a referenced testament as per our clients belief in us.

Simplified IT Services were awarded the most strategic ICT tender to have ever been released by the Department of Local Government. Through the tender, they became the strategic partners of Government and were responsible for the drafting of the official ICT Strategy and its associated Implementation Plans for 29 out of the 30 municipalities that Western Cape comprises of. They delivered through exceeding our expectations and they consistently delivered each phase of the project at least 2 weeks before the deadline dates. The strategy delivered by them across to all of the 29 municipalities was comprehensive and succinct in terms of expressing our departmental objectives. I would advise them to anyone because they are a level 1 BBBEE QSE service provider who can deliver.

They are an agile level 1 BEE contributor with exceptional capability in all areas of their businesses. Through dealing with Simplified IT Services we have taken our Information Technology to the next level, yet whilst ensuring that legacy systems are still in place and operational alongside Next Generation Technology. There are many projects that have been undertaken by Simplified IT Services; both WLAN and LAN Infrastructure, Innovative Storage Platforms, Virtual Environment Migration, but it is their exceptional Service Delivery that has always stood out when compared to the rest. They have completed 11 of our largest ICT projects from 2011 to 2016 as part of a 5 year strategy and hopefully with many more to come. I would recommend them to any business interested in dealing with a company who puts Service Delivery first.
