Umpetha IT Solutions is an IT outsource company focused on delivering professional and quality solutions and services to all our clients. We are a cloud focussed company as we firmly believe that Cloud solutions of today offer any business a distinct advantage in the ever demanding IT landscape. We do also offer on-premise solutions for those who prefer a more traditional approach.
Our approach to IT is unique. Yes, we have been the accronym spewing techie type… years ago, when we started off in this industry. Our extensive experience has taught us that this approach scares business minded individuals off 10 times out of 10. So… when we approach IT today, we first understand the business challenge, in business’ terms and language, then we apply innovative IT solutions to deliver what business requires. The technicalities of the solution are reserved for the IT individuals who need to understand them, but the business value and output is translated back to the business in their terms. It is vitally important that these solutions remain uncomplicated and cost effective in order to support business moving forward.
Our team is young and dynamic. Sean McQuade, one of the founders of Umpetha IT Solutions, has real world experience in achieving IT & business alignment, having just completed a 3.5 year stint as the divisional CIO for Imperial Car Rental, Tourism & Auto Parts divisions. As part of Sean’s responsibilities, he was tasked with the implementation of the King III principles across the 21 companies in the divisions he looked after.
IT Outsource? This has been a hotly debated topic for many years. Some companies prefer to keep IT resources internally, and other are benefiting from the advantages that Outsourcing offers. In most cases, internal IT resources make use of external service providers to supply crucial and often core services in any case. The cost of maintaining an internal IT team often spirals out of control and the business ends up carrying this cost as part of its operational cost. We believe that the best solution for the small to medium size company in South Africa is to outsource your IT requirements.
