Honesty & Openness

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

Communication

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”!

SET LIFE

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.

Cape Fringe

CAPE FRINGE

We assist in the analysis, design and development of the primary factory job and stock control solution for Cape Fringe Manufacturers, a leading quality textile trimmings business in South Africa.

Working closely with Cape Fringe, we documented the requirements, then designed and proposed a solution within days to meet their budget. We developed an enterprise solution with end-to-end Microsoft tools giving a professional platform with the greatest scalability and longevity for ongoing development while only tackling a phase at a time.

Organik Logo

ORGANIK DESIGN

We assisted Organik Design in the analysis, design and development of artwork job tracking and reporting tools.

Working within a tight budget, we assessed numerous options and following our recommendation, we extended Organik’s traditional Microsoft Excel tracking files using built-in programming and related tools to introduce and train their users on a more usable, streamlined tracker with intuitive one-click functions to automatically categorise, summarise, aggregate and report as needed within seconds. This practical solution was released within days of our opening session and producing significant time savings from day 1, providing Organik with desperately needed relief.

Neuroco Logo

NEUROCO

We assisted in the analysis, design and development of NeuroTrac, a suite of human physiological data reporting and charting tools.

Working alongside top qualitative researchers, brand managers, and neuro-scientists, NeuroTRAC was developed to analyse human physiological data from multiple subjects exposed to various live stimuli. Initially for EEG and EDR analysis, NeuroTRAC employs cutting-edge neuro-science principles complementing existing hardware, to efficiently map, mathematically analyse, and graphically output results to client-friendly, easily-interpretable formats, saving researchers considerable time and money.
