Black empowered artisan training company, IFTA, has invested R300,000 in upgrading its IT infrastructure, which now includes a 35-user Windows server based local area network.

This follows a R500,000 IT investment last year, which was carried out by Wynleigh International, the technology-focused business compliance company.
Last year Wynleigh successfully installed a business compliance software solution, which acts to improve business processes, including quality management.
IFTA was, at the time, used as a pilot site for the artisan training industry.
The latest R300,000 investment takes the company’s IT infrastructure to the next level, says director Sean Jones.
“We are now running a 35-user network off Windows Server. One of the key reasons for us going this route is so that we can also fully optimise the Wynleigh International Achiever Plus business compliance software, which has been working really well.
"Our business efficiencies – and overall business compliance levels – have improved significantly.”
Jones says the Achiever Plus software offers a plethora of information in an automated environment. This includes giving management complete information control from the time the trainee checks into the college until they depart. It is comprehensive and gives the full picture, in a push-button, automated manner.
