About IT was recently awarded Gauteng Pastel Channel Partner and Pastel Business Evolution Partner for 2007. In addition, the company was also placed first on Softline Pastel’s overall accolades list for Channel and Business Evolution partners countrywide.

The Pastel awards are based not only on physical sales for the year but also acknowledge the number of dedicated certified personnel as well as a company’s respective contribution to research and development (R&D).  Currently, About IT is the South Africa’s largest installer of Pastel solutions.
“Since our inception almost five years ago our client base has seen a 35% year-on-year growth. The Pastel awards are undoubtedly indicative of our strengthening business as well as the level of our service delivery,” comments Roux Crafford, MD of About IT Solutions.
About IT has also, as part of its growing national footprint, established a branch in Woodmead, Johannesburg. Headquartered in Pretoria, the company has offices in the Eastern Cape, Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces.
Apart from the Pastel accolades, About IT recently received the Silver Arrow Award from independent researcher PMR Research.  The awards are based on nominations received by companies’ respective customers.
In addition to Pastel’s financial system solutions, About IT will now also be providing Softline’s Sage products to the South African marketplace.
