mandela day - ikhwezilokusa home photo project

Published on: Tuesday 18th of July 2017

ACS-Embrace received a request from Ikhwezilokusa Home (a home for the profoundly disabled), to take a photograph of each and every resident, to then print and frame an A4 copy of each photo. These will then be hung on the wall, above each patient’s bed.  We believed this project would make a significant difference in bringing a little bit of joy into the lives of every individual resident as the photos will help create a sense of belonging, of being “at home” and having “my own place”, apart from bringing some colour and upliftment into the dorms.

Preventative or scheduled maintenance is an effective way to reduce costly, unplanned maintenance and shrink vehicle and equipment downtime. With diverse fleet assets, ranging from pickup trucks to heavy-duty equipment, it can be difficult to keep track of varying maintenance schedules.

going where no "bolt-on" has gone before!

Published on: Tuesday 6th of June 2017

Editorial published in Hire SA – May 2017 Edition

The challenge for any company operating in the rental marketplace is to find a best-of-breed rental software solution that integrates to their existing financial system..

Many rental companies first implement a financial system to run their business and eventually, to support the unique requirements of the rental industry, add or “bolt-on” a separate rental system. While this appears to be simpler and less costly than replacing the existing system with a new fully integrated one, the reality is this “bolt-on” creates significant ongoing problems and costs that never go away.
