On Professionalism/Ethics/Integrity: From the very first time we engaged with Kapela we could very quickly determine the level of professionalism in their conduct. The teams’ experience and exposure to business locally and globally also lends to this credibility.

On Value Add: Apart from BBBEE compliance point, this is our second most important metric in selecting a partner. We are looking for value-add from a business experience perspective, “sound-boarding” and also entry to potential customers. Thus far, Kapela has delivered on all areas. We have good chemistry and thus far, very easy to do business with, available for discussions at all times – always make time for us

Zensar and Kapela joined hands together in 2013 with Kapela becoming our Black Economic Empowerment partner in our South Africa business. We have started working together and find the team very professional in their approach. We find them very interested in our strategy and in business development efforts in order to identify areas wherein they can help us grow the business. We have seen the value-add from them in terms of guidance and also in terms of bringing new relationships and making introductions. Though a new relationship, they have shown a strong level of participation and preparedness in our board meetings also and we see a strong sense of involvement, ownership and commitment from the directors and Kapela as an organization in helping us in our business

It is hard to believe that we only met them for the first time 8 months ago if one considers the relationships that have been established, both professionally and socially. I can recommend them for their integrity, professionalism, business acumen, experience and professional network in industry. We look forward to taking the Company to the next level with our new business partner Kapela.

BDO entered into an agreement with Kapela Holdings, a majority black-owned investment company which has purchased 30% of BDO South Africa Advisory Services (Pty) Ltd – the company through which we conduct all our non-audit related assignments. The transaction was effective 1 January 2011. Not only is Kapela our black empowerment partner, but they also add value to our company on an ongoing basis without interfering with management and are people of high integrity. The most important factor which has come through since our dealing with them is the values they subscribe to
