Honesty & Openness

Our business is built on relationships, and the most rewarding relationships are built on honesty & openness.


We know good software starts with good communication – starting with listening and understanding your business and user challenge.

Responsiveness & Reliability

We know the importance of receiving a competent response swiftly and reliably on issues big or small.

Free Consultation

We offer a free consultation visit for one of our analysts to listen to your challenges, understand your business and give an immediate steer on your IT options.

Obligation-Free Analysis

No-one likes to be locked in! We believe it’s important to offer our clients competent analysis without the obligation to use our development services.

Flexible Costing

We’re equally innovative with our rates and approach to development, offering different levels of engagement and partnership.

Quality & Innovation

With software and technology constantly advancing it’s important to innovate and strive for the highest quality of development to ensure the greatest chance to keep our clients up-to-date.

Intelligent Business Apps

We specialise in the implementation of intelligent business applications, to provide a fit-for-purpose solution to our clients to address inefficiencies through innovative software.

Integration Specialists

Working with a number of enterprise systems in the UK, we’ve gained valuable experience in API development and systems integrations.

Rapid Development Frameworks

Our rapid development toolkits allow us to take on projects big or small and avoid re-inventing the wheel, meaning shorter development times, meaning more affordable solutions for our clients.

SME Focussed

We have a passion for small to medium enterprises and enjoy bringing our professional expertise in international enterprise systems to the SME owner at affordable rates.

Time-Zone Friendly

For our UK clients, the Cape Town time-zone is ideal! And so is the weather for those “premises inspections”!

Haefele Software, in partnership with Set Life, have designed and built the first of a suite of online & mobile apps geared to streamline the film and advertising industry.

Launched in Cape Town, targeting its growing film & commercials industry, Set Life: Art Direct offers an effective and user-friendly platform tailored for art departments and prop sourcing – managing the life cycle of each prop from brief to shoot day to its return. The mobile app allows for prop buyers to rapidly and seamlessly capture photos of props, automatically setting locations and uploading to Set Life’s central database, while the online application is specifically designed for Prop Masters, Costume Designers and Set Decorators to oversee all aspects of the job, curating their growing collection of props all in one place – tackling a number of challenges in briefing, client presentations, crew tracking, photo collating and the complications on shoot day, thus making wrap days easier and more efficient.
