Deffinity open new office in South Africa

15 March 2011

Deffinity MSA Limited, a leading UK software company providing hosted (SaaS) Project Delivery solutions to IT Vendors, Integrators, Architects, Media Companies, Consulting firms, Local Government and the global Financial Services sector, today announced the opening of their new office in South Africa. Located at 4th Floor, West Tower, Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton City, Johannesburg, the office will be run by Bryan Mutambiranwa, Director of Deffinity UK’s new joint venture company, Deffinity Africa Ltd, and will also serve as Deffinity’s Head Office within continental Africa.

Deffinity creates a “live” project environment through a simple web portal, giving Project Managers, Finance Directors, Vendors and Clients an instant snapshot and total visibility of project portfolios in real-time. Now being used to deliver major projects by many leading UK investment banks, service providers and IT Consulting companies, Deffinity saves up to 50% in project administration costs and allows the user to efficiently manage their IT assets and resources, whilst maximising profitability at all levels.

Deffinity’s simple drag-and-drop functionality, with a choice of hosted or enterprise solutions, allows clients (and their clients) to track all project and service related activities on a “live” basis. Customers can choose from a mix of modules to create their “own Deffinity” including Projects, Programme Management, Resource Planning, Change Control, Audits, Timesheets, Document Management, Tender Management, Training and Service Desk, all of which gives them an affordable, flexible tool that grows with them as the business evolves, on a simple monthly subscription.

Steve Pinkney, Global Director of Sales & Marketing said, “Following our recent expansion into Scandinavia with Deffinity Nordic Ltd, we are delighted to open our new office in Johannesburg and launch Deffinity Africa Ltd. This is the result of keen interest in our solutions from the Finance and Mining sectors in particular, and we will be announcing significant contract wins in the very near future. We are also engaged on opportunities in the SADC region (Southern Africa Development Community) – Botswana, Tanzania, Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Congo and Kenya. These areas will be managed from our Johannesburg operation.”

Pinkney added, “I am particularly pleased to welcome our new Business Development Director in South Africa, Bryan Mutambiranwa (BSc Hons, Information Systems). Bryan is a highly placed and successful professional with a 16 year track record and has extensive experience with global technology companies such as IBM Global Services, Computer Associates, Gartner, Checkpoint, and Visionapp. Bryan has held a series of senior roles within these organisations and was responsible for key growth, technical & business solutions build, project management, marketing and operations within the African market. We consider him to be a valuable addition to the Deffinity community and look forward to many successes in the region”.
