Our vision: a different type of company
We have built EPI-USE Labs as a team, and have a long-term vision to build a strong, healthy company which values both teamwork and individual strengths. We want to be well known for our unique approach, outlook, culture, value offerings and solutions.
A big focus at EPI-USE Labs is on our people. Every person has a voice, and this allows for a very creative environment and a lot of innovation.
Our core values, built on a foundation of academic excellence, collectively guide our decisions and actions. At EPI-USE Labs, we
We invest time in finding, selecting and appointing the right people, and then continually invest in our people.
We promote a welcoming and professional corporate culture, and do our best to ensure that every employee has the support and growth path they need to succeed across our multi-faceted business.
The story of our company began with a professor who headed up the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. What started out as a way to fund expensive computer equipment for the university turned into a global success story.
Our academic roots are still strong. At EPI-USE Labs, we gather the brightest and most innovative minds in our field, and we have highly-qualified professionals with many graduate and post-graduate degrees and numerous SAP certifications in our family.
We have invested significantly in Research and Development (R&D) over the years, and our clients get evident benefits from this. We have a strong belief in adding value for our clients by genuinely looking after them, as reflected in our slogan, ‘value through innovation’.
I view our clients as investors in our company, and we build ideas and suggestions from our clients into our solutions. We respond to changes in the market not by just following the latest fad, but by standing back and working out what the real driver is for those changes, and then what solutions we can provide.
