AdvanceNet is a value added reseller (VAR) of ICT hardware and software solutions, operating in sub-Saharan Africa. The company was founded in 1987.
AdvanceNet is a Gold Certified Microsoft Business Partner developing solutions in Business Analytics, Customer Management and Financial Management.
AdvanceNet also represents leading global brands, such as HP, IBM, SunSystems and Pivotal.
However, its unique differentiator is best outlined in its positioning statement ‘value beyond technology’. In a world in which technology is becoming more of a commodity, it is the design, integration and implementation of solutions, enabled by technology that sets AdvanceNet apart. Over many years, AdvanceNet’s investment in people and intellectual property is the key differential embedded in ‘value beyond technology’.
This ongoing strategy has resulted in AdvanceNet having received ‘awards in excellence’ from Microsoft and Pivotal in 2004. Further, AdvanceNet also qualified as a Technology Top 100 company.
Built on a business model designed and developed by the management team, it places the customers’ customer at the center of their business. This supports the principal, that it is the way a company does business that is its competitive advantage. Price and delivery are no more than hygiene factors in today’s globally competitive environment.
