Software stars shift to standalone and state-of-the-art new offices

Home Engineering ICT Software stars shift to standalone and state-of-the-art new offices

THE software department of Gqeberha-based technology company, S4 Integration, moved into slick new R70 million offices and launched as a separate company, called Wirk, on December 8.

S4 integration’s software department was established in 2008 with the hire of the company’s first software developer. The company has seen continuous growth since and now boasts over 160 highly skilled software developers.

Gideon Smith, marketing manager, said that the new company, Wirk, would be a standalone company. “The newly-founded software division of the S4 Group is positioned as a standalone business unit. This strategic move was driven by the incredible growth within the software development team. The establishment of Wirk as a distinct entity allows us to solidify our status as being a software powerhouse.” Smith said there would be no change in the way that existing customers did business with the company. “You can expect the same high quality, fully customisable software that you have come to rely on.” Wirk is located two minutes from S4’s head offices in Fairview.

“This growth has necessitated a more expansive operational environment and a transition to a standalone company that allows us to broaden our horizons while maintaining our commitment to the industrial sector and technical programming,” said Smith.

CEO of Nelson Mandela Bay’s Business Chamber, Denise van Huyssteen, congratulated the team, on its new “Google-like” offices. In a social media post, she said: “This is a great testament to the success of the team who founded S4 Integration in Nelson Mandela Bay almost 30 years ago as a turnkey automation solutions provider for major industries.
