The award is presented to a company whose competitive strategy yielded significant gains in credibility among end users, resulting in a wider client base within the South African process industries. The award is furthermore based on the analysis of several market factors for each market participant according to predetermined criteria including interviews with industry participants.
Gerhard Greeff, divisional manager, Process Management and Control (PMC) at Bytes SI said: “We are honoured to receive this award from Frost and Sullivan. This accolade further raises Bytes SI’s profile and provides us recognition by an external reputable industry expert of our strategy and leadership within the MES environment.”
“In addition, the award also recognises our expertise and initiative as well as the contribution and proficiency of our pioneering resources. Without the ability to deliver on projects the levels of repeat business from established clients would not have been possible.”
Greeff added that Bytes SI has adopted a visionary approach in addressing the skills shortage in this sector through the employment of junior engineers, as well as the implementation of learnership programmes. He said the company has also been able to enhance its offerings by providing general and customised company specific MES awareness training.
“Frost and Sullivan are one of the only consulting and research companies with a focus in Southern Africa, and this award confirms our position as a player and thought leader in the MES field. Our focus has been on educating, developing and increasing the market and now we join an elite group of previous award recipients such as ABB, Invensys Wonderware, Schneider Electric, Micro soft and Accenture,” says Greeff.
“With the increasing integration of shop-floor Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), back-office ERP systems and ultimately Business Intelligence software, Bytes SI has proved its ability to span across all of these disciplines which positions them as a leader in this field, delivering tangible ROI to their manufacturing, mining and materials processing clients,” commented David Redshaw, Chief Executive Officer of Bytes.
