Hotel Verde Zanzibar, also known as Zanzibar’s greenest hotel, has appointed AWCape to supply, implement and support Sage 300 ERP (previously known as Accpac). With a number of blue chip clients already being supported in West Africa, the Hotel Verde Zanzibar is AWCape’s first entry into the East African region.
Hotel Verde Zanzibar has taken sustainable development to new heights in East Africa and not only is the building sustainable, but green principles, processes and measures ensure all operations are eco-friendly and continually assessed for improvement.
Partnering with AWCape who offers a wide range of business efficiency solutions was a natural choice for Hotel Verde Zanzibar, and AWCape’s existing African footprint made it the logical choice in terms of training and support services.
AWCape is also supporting Verde Hotel Cape Town’s Sage 300 (Accpac) installation, and this experience has provided confidence in the robustness & reliability experienced with Sage 300 and AWCape. Maresa Pretorius, CFO for Verde Hotels, stated “the modernization of the old ACCPAC has been very successful, and the introduction of the web browser based version, together with the stability that we experienced over the past years, has proven to us that Sage 300 has reached a level of maturity that is of great importance when venturing into Africa”
“Sage 300’s ability to manage multiple currencies, it’s user friendly interface, the adaptability to various local requirements and the relative quick turnaround time to get operators trained, has proven to us that Sage 300 is the logical choice for our Group.” commented Maresa.
Dr Khalil du Plessis, AWCape Managing Director stated “The latest software developments, upgrades and training programmes ensure that companies who invested in Accpac continue to reap the benefits of new technologies of Sage 300. Although the latest product is based on very different technologies to its predecessor Accpac, the original user will not feel uncomfortable when they start to use the latest version, which is a great benefit for organizations such as Verde Hotels.
Sandra Crous, Sage VP Mid Market, Africa, adds: “Sage is committed to deliver value to our loyal customers and it is great to see customers benefiting from the modernization of our latest versions.”
