Converge Solutions is a technology company that delivers specialised solutions and services into the healthcare, banking, insurance and FMCG industries.
Founded in 2017, this young, dynamic, founder-led organisation has received numerous awards and boasts 50+ clients across Southern Africa and the APAC regions.
Directors and founders, Johann Joubert (CEO), Kobus van der Merwe (CFO) and Jaco Cromhout (COO) had worked together for 17 years at a large, multinational ICT organisation before deciding that “to make the impact that is both possible and required in Africa, we need to become the owners of the vision, and deliver services and solutions that speak to Africa’s needs.”
Converge Solutions has a suite of offerings that address the requirements of the clients they serve, which includes:
• Themis, a Fraud Management platform used across more than 20 banks & insurers,
• LULA, an insights platform for the FMCG industry, which manages client efficiency at more than 2700 stores and
• a suite of healthcare solutions, that help more than 129 facilities improve their service delivery.
Converge Solutions is also an SAP partner, with expertise across a number of industries, including healthcare, banking and manufacturing. Converge Solutions was also the first partner in Africa to become Cerner ishmed (https://www.cerner.com/ishmed/members) certified. This unique combination of curated expertise across Neptune, SAP & Cerner, makes Converge Solutions an obvious choice for healthcare organisations.
“Neptune (https://www.neptune-software.com/) offers a truly compelling value proposition to SAP and non-SAP clients,” says CEO, Johann. “Neptune paves the way for application harmonisation and orchestration without negatively disrupting business operations. With the ability to augment underlying systems, it becomes possible to modernise an enterprise “top-down”, improving user experience and driving a higher level of collaboration, without having to completely upset the underlying application landscape. This makes for an incremental adoption of cloud and mobile usage, without the pain,” says Johann.
“While all industries can and will benefit from Neptune, we are seeing immediate benefit to clients in the healthcare industry. SAP clients can elevate their experience through the deployment of Neptune ‘over’ SAP, while non-SAP clients can use Neptune to enable or extend their digital footprint. In either case, Neptune enables a more interactive and engaging experience,” concludes Johann.
