Client Success Stories!

First and foremost, EconoBEE truly hopes that everyone is staying safe and sane during these unprecedented times that we find ourselves in!

South Africans are certainly an incredibly resilient people and we have no doubt that we will emerge from this as a stronger nation in the months to come.

As we hopefully edge closer to businesses being able to return to work, albeit in a “new normal” fashion, we at EconoBEE thought it would be good to look at a few of our client’s success stories this year!

  • Engineering Company (2 companies in the group), t/o R200m, staff 64, level 4 and targeting a level 3 and achieved a level 2 in January, Codes of Good Practice
  • ICT Company (foreign owned), t/o R48m, staff 22, non-compliant and achieved a level 1 through an intricate ownership deal in January, ICT Codes
  • Property management company, t/o R1b, staff 150, level 4 and achieved a level 1 through an ownership deal in January, Property Codes
  • Manufacturing company, t/o R110m, staff 50, level 8 to a level 6 in February, Codes of Good Practice
  • Advertising company, t/o R23m, staff 26, level 8 to a level 3 which included a minimum 12% equity ownership sale in March, MAC codes
  • Pharmaceutical company (foreign owned), t/o R220m, staff 210, level 4 to a level 2 in February, Codes of Good Practice

Interesting Scenarios:

  • EconoBEE assisted an ICT QSE company and their SED intervention was in the form of a grant which the verification agency did not see fit to award them points, as they thought their contribution was not ICT specific. EconoBEE escalated the matter to SANAS and the ICT council and our client obtained the points.
  • A generic ICT company contacted EconoBEE to assist them in their ownership structure and interpretation, which they were battling to get approved by the verification company for over a year. EconoBEE helped correct the shareholders agreement and wording and managed to get them the requisite points.
  • EconoBEE assisted a generic company, who were utilising the Codes of Good Practice, in their skills development 2.1.2.2 The verification company stated that this category was meant for learnerships, however, we aligned them to the codes which state that we have to look at the learning program matrix.
  • EconoBEE assisted a generic construction company to obtain the requisite points within the Supplier Development Programs. The verification company did not want to award points based on the client’s initial plan, however EconoBEE was able to construct a plan that enabled them to achieve the points.
