OUR FIRST STEPS TO MARKET
Initial development of Chase started in 1999, with our first clients being University of Cape Town and V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. The name Chase was adopted and remains to this day.
In 2008 Sukema Integrated Solutions (Pty) Ltd acquired the Chase Software from Global Vision, thereby creating one of the leading Operations and Risk Management platforms in the market. The acquisition and development investment further harnessed Chase’s position in the market.
CONTINUOUS INNOVATION AND TRANSFORMATION
Continuous innovation and rapid transformation have been themes throughout our history. The company has built a solid reputation thanks to aggressive marketing and sales, and through thorough employee selection. By 2012, the company began offering a new range of solutions to clients – solutions that aligned organizations’ technologies, processes and people with their strategies.
THE CHASE RE-WRITE
In 2012 a decision was taken to re-build Chase from the ground up. A new architecture and UI gave Chase new life and extended possibilities and functionality. Chase now includes data warehouse capabilities, extensive integration, a Mobile App, modern design features and ease of use functionalities. Chase extended it’s array of product offerings to include Workforce Management, additional integration capabilities, and Workplace Maintenance.
Throughout Chases’ history, we have expanded our offerings and capitalized on evolving market trends and technologies to benefit our clients. We remain innovative and continue to pioneer systems integration in terms of PSIM and Building Management. This has led to the deployment of advanced GIS components, AI capabilities, analysis tools and mobile applications. Chase has established itself as a leader and well positioned to extend to the global marketplace. Combining unparalleled experience, comprehensive capabilities across all industries and business functions, and extensive research and development. We collaborate with our clients to help them achieve their business objectives.
THE NEW ERA
A decision was taken to consolidate the company’s IP into a new company Sukema IPCo (Pty) Ltd and we joined forces with EOH. EOH offered extensive Global reach and scalability to help Chase become a truly Global product. Great inroads were made into EOH’s extensive client base.
In August 2018 EOH Holdings split into two divisions and a new brand Nextec was formed. Chase was moved into Nextec together with other specialised solutions for high-growth industries such as BPO, healthcare and water sanitation. This move provided for greater opportunities to bring the groups service offerings together and to provide comprehensive total solutions in areas such as Smart Cities for example. With an 8% share of the market there was a lot of headroom for growth.
MANAGEMENT BUY OUT
In March 2019 Sukema IPco (Pty) Ltd concluded a MBO and exited Nextec and EOH. A new direction for Chase had thus begun with a new focus into the GRC (Governance Risk & Compliance) market.
On this day the world announced Covid-19 and the world was never the same!
