BSG (Africa), based in Illovo, walked off with the Service of the Year award in the Corporate category in the PetroSA Proudly South African Homegrown Awards on Saturday night (21 June), in Johannesburg.
BSG (Africa) is a solutions delivery company which focuses on two areas: business consulting to help clients deliver their business objectives by improving their operational processes, and software development, which links business needs to real technology solutions.
BSG impressed the Proudly South African judges with its mechanisms that accomplish a high level of service quality in applying their abilities in software solutions and business consulting to positively influence the South African economy, its productivity and its growth.
“BSG is and always will be extremely focused on all the elements that enable us to deliver the highest levels of service and quality delivery to our customers. All of us at BSG are extremely honoured and excited about our win for 2007, as this is the first time we have competed in the corporate category which included some stiff competition,” says Greg Reis, CEO of BSG (Africa).
BSG won South African Innovator of the Year in the SMME category last year.
Winners were chosen by a panel of eight judges representing business, trade unions, government and the community, who had the pleasure of deciding on the companies that excel in delivering the Proudly SA promise.
Proudly SA CEO Manana Moroka says the Homegrown Awards recognise innovation and excellence among our member companies, serving to further cultivate their competitive edge over their international counterparts by thinking globally, but offering local goods and services that provide a better import substitute.
"Our encouragement to the nation to 'buy local' means that our members grow, more jobs are created and this adds to the general growth of our economy,” she says. “We give equal credit and recognition to the contribution made by both corporate and SMMEs. Regardless of size, adherence to the Proudly SA campaign criteria is what matters.”
