2Cana Solutions’ long and excellent reputation for providing high quality and cost-effective business solutions to customers worldwide has been honored with the Computer Society of South Africa (CSSA) 2008 KwaZulu-Natal ICT Company of the Year Award.

“As a Proudly South African company, 2Cana is thrilled to receive this award, which clearly recognizes our achievements in the industry and in the community this is made possible by the passion, enthusiasm and commitment and especially the hard-work of our people.

“While we have much to be proud and happy about at 2Cana, the CSSA’s KZN ICT Company of the
Year Award is a wonderful feather in our cap,” said the company’s Financial Director, Shirley Singh.

The Kwazulu-Natal company’s solutions are based on Oracle and Microsoft technologies and the company has achieved Oracle Advantage Partner and Microsoft Gold statuses, the highest accreditation levels with both these partners.

2Cana have an impressive client portfolio, which includes: Mr Price, MiWay, Momentum, Medscheme, Toyota, Ethekwini Municipality, Sappi, Smith & Nephew among other.

Singh said that 2Cana has a number of quality solution offerings, including TIA, an insurance industry solution that is customer-centric, function rich, and supports multiple on-line sales channels with 24/7/365 processing availability, providing unprecedented flexibility and scalability.

“As a TIA implementation partner that specialises in accelerated implementations, integration, maintenance and support, 2Cana Solutions is ideally positioned to leverage its position as KZN ICT Company of the Year
to deliver this solution to our country’s strong insurance sector,” she said.

Singh also stated that the company, which received an ‘AA’ rating from EmpowerDEX as a Level 3 contributor this year, believed in redressing the social and economic disparities through Black Economic Empowerment (BEE).

“Our focus takes in all aspects of BEE, including shareholding, recruitment and procurement policies, as well as skills development and training,” she explains.

2Cana has partnered with the Ethekwini Municipality and Phumulela NGO in running a shelter in Cato Manor, providing feeding schemes and material support.

“In addition to addressing the immediate primary needs, we also run programmes like skills development and counselling, which are aimed at uplifting people. The objective is to provide people with food, tools and hope to make them self sustainable and able to take control of their own destiny,” she said
