MEA Business Awards 2022

MEA Business Awards 2022 Technology moves quickly. Often too quickly for many outside of the industry. Indeed, it has become an overwhelming landscape defined by too much choice, too much jargon, and a plethora of expensive, confusing options for those that don’t know what to look for. In a world that is only becoming more and more digital, this divide between those that can’t keep up and those that can has only evolved to larger extremes – and hardworking businesses are swiftly falling behind. Enter Smangele and Sinobuntu, who have looked to change the technological landscape to best serve business owners and companies of all sizes. For Smangele, this was less an act of good business sense, and more about ethics. A choice that is reflected in her company’s name; Sinobuntu. “Sinobuntu” means ‘humanity’ or ‘caring’. At Sinobuntu we care about our clients. You won’t have to deal with chat-bots or call centres. We provide you with IT Specialists that understand your business needs. Our aim is to assist our clients to achieve their goals and empower them to do the best business they can do using technology in this changing world of tech. We deliver innovative, cost-effective and results-driven solutions that make a real difference to our clients.” Perhaps most impressive is the breadth of services that Sinobuntu offers, and all without sacrificing the quality of that service. From hardware and software sales, IT support services, cyber security and date centre networks to back-up solutions and IT recruitment, Sinobuntu has firmly positioned itself as a sort of one-stop-shop for businesses looking to level up their IT infrastructure. It’s no surprise that the company has experienced incredibly growth over its time in operation, and especially over the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw mass adoption of technological solutions. Of course, by that point, Sinobuntu was wellestablished with a client base that sung its praises in terms of the efficacy of its services and expertise. Here, Smangele takes a moment to talk more on these services and expertise. “We provide a complete IT support package under a single roof, to ensure that our clients’ businesses have every advantage to succeed. We aim to save time, build trust, and deliver affordable, effective solutions with a client-centric focus.” Ultimately, that’s the crux of the company’s success. It almost seems simple, but of course Sinobuntu has succeeded where many others have failed to thrive. Technology is an incredibly challenging arena to find success, and it acts as testament to the team’s strength that the company has not only existed for close to a decade, but grown, innovated and developed alongside the largest of those that exist within the industry. As it is, Sinobuntu has cultivated a significant reputation across the African continent with a strong foundation for further expansion into overseas markets. Through its slogan, ‘connecting the world through tech’, it has proposed a goal which looks set to be achieved, and all with a core defined by ethical values. This is what business should be – futurethinking, ethical, client-centric, expert, driven, and innovative. It’s no surprise that Sinobuntu has become synonymous with excellence. It’s recognition in the MEA Business Awards is well-deserved by every metric, and its future is one that looks set to boom, spearheaded as it is by its Founder, Smangele Buthelezi.
