My vision

Announcement by Howard Diesel, Director of Modelware Systems

Returning to my passion for data

As from the 1st of February 2015 Modelware Systems will be embarking on a new business approach, one of focusing solely on Data Consulting.

In the past we offered Software Development to our customers with support, development and consultancy carried out as part of our business model. This led to us being top heavy with support staff and our last year was not a profitable one. As with many small companies we also erred in taking on whatever business came our way, causing us to diversify too broadly giving insufficient focus to our core business.

We were no longer the lean organisation that we needed to be to perform optimally. Things had to change.

After much soul searching I have decided to return to my core passion –  Data Management. For the last year I have been focusing on the challenge of taking data in crisis, assessing its weaknesses, constructing a recovery plan, monitoring the changes and getting data to perform optimally. I am passionate about guiding, directing and mentoring customers through the rift between where they are now and where they need to be. From now on I will be much more strategic in my efforts.

Existing customers will continue to be supported by the developers currently servicing them.  During times of crisis I can be called upon to offer additional support not offered in existing contracts.

To customers who have supported me for the past 19 years, I thank you and am sure that you will receive the same commitment from your developer that you previously enjoyed.

I reaffirm my commitment to facilitating the supply of latest technologies into Africa. This is a new beginning for me.
