Lance Govender, owner of Actsys, joined the family business 5 years ago and aspires for Actsys to play a pivotal role in the ICT sector for enterprises of all sizes.

Actsys implemented K8, which is Kerridge Commercial Systems' flagship ERP system, in 2018.

Since implementing K8, Actsys has grown in leaps and bounds. Our new system created a solid flow of processes, improving our efficiencies in terms of sales processing and service delivery to our customers, end to end stock management and much more. It managed the entire cycle, from sales order, procurement, bin location, accounting, debtors and creditors and all the other key operational functions. It just worked, and it allowed us to operate smoothly and efficiently.
