Sahara Computers , supplier of digital lifestyle technology to the Springbok rugby team, is proud of its affiliation to the 2007 IRB Rugby World Cup champions.
The ICT company is not new to the business of meeting technical requirements of those operating within top level rugby.
It has penned a long-term supply contract with the South African Rugby Union (SARU) in 2006 and has also served as the official supplier of the u19 IRB Rugby World Cup.
Gary Naidoo, deputy MD at Sahara, says the company has established itself as a proactive, reliable supplier of affordable, high quality connectivity and mobile solutions across various sectors.
“We have always been aggressive in demonstrating what true ICT solutions can do when strategically placed and matched with core requirements. Technology is an enabler and it is our conviction that well positioned solutions can meet the needs of any user, at any level and within any environment,” he says.
Sahara Computers has a vested interest in helping to transfer the value of technology and contribute towards the development of the sport adds Naidoo.
Springbok players, coaching staff and representatives use Sahara product to connect and communicate whilst abroad.
Hardware is being used to meet all technical requirements, from information and material storage for game strategy analysis and execution, right through to individual personalised devices.
“In much the same way as the Springboks are likened with strength, character, talent and skill, the name Sahara Computers, as a national supplier of high-performance, cutting-edge ICT, has become synonymous with performance, effective levels of service and leadership within a highly competitive arena,” Naidoo continues.
Sahara management describe the contract with SARU as a powerful, positive step in the development of the game.
Says Naidoo, “This partnership will not only entrench technical and digital capability within the sport, it will also serve to help facilitate the growth and development of players, facilities and resources.
"Additionally, we are continuing to spearhead the growth of the digital lifestyle market and the idea behind the Sahara brand is that of enriching people’s lives with an emphasis on excitement, convenience, affordability and quality. Rugby in South Africa epitomizes these positives.
