Softline VIP expands into Zimbabwe
Omni Africa, based in Harare, has signed an agreement with Softline VIP, a supplier of business software and related services, that will see the company increase its footprint into sub-Saharan Africa by establishing a partner network in Zimbabwe.
Softline VIP released its Premier Payroll, a software solution that caters for the African market. It is customised to be country-specific taking into account the legislation and required statutory reports that are needed to run payroll and HR management software. The Zimbabwean suite of products includes regulatory requirements from the Zimbabwean Revenue Services (ZIMRA) as well as the National Social Security Authority (NSSA).
New system, effective end February 2011
Says Gerhard Hartman, national sales manager for Softline VIP: "We started the implementation process two months ago to facilitate a smooth transition from their current software to the new management solution. The new system will officially come into effect end of February 2011, carrying the stamp of approval from Omni Africa."
"The feedback has been very positive with clients finding Softline VIP's payroll programme to be highly customisable and stable with easy navigation and a logical layout. We are currently training users to familiarise them with the product in order to optimise utilisation and to aid the transition process," says Hartman.
Softline VIP is currently operating and expanding services in Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, DRC, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Mauritius, Mozambique, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar and Malawi, with Zimbabwe being the newest addition to the operation.
