A new conference and event solutions company in South Africa has taken shape with a newly formed company, Gearhouse ICS. It is the Gearhouse Group’s 10th company.
The new company provides IT hardware, software, and project management services, and has newly-developed products in the shape of EventsCentral, which is an online and onsite delegate management and registration system, and MediaVue, an online and onsite presentation and content management system.
“When we developed the software for EventsCentral, we really kept the end-user, our client, in mind,” said Adrian de Vries, lead software developer for both EventsCentral and MediaVue. “We have developed it so that the front-end is very easy to use, but it has full functionality. The client should not assume that it is lacking in any functionality because it is so easy to manage. EventsCentral can be customized exactly to our client’s needs.”
“MediaVue eases the process for presenters who can upload their presentations at a central point,” he continued. “Then the presentation is delivered over the network to the relevant room, eliminating the usual running around with memory sticks. This system is unique in South Africa but it is on par with international standards. We do constant updates and modify it as we go along.”
