software Van Zyl Rudd is an Equity management package for HR systems. It is time consuming to insert the data in VZR from other packages such as VIP if done manually. Our Vip2Vzr is a data migration and conversion tool for extracting the VIP HR data and translating it to the required input format for VZR, for example, transposing one classification type to another eg W for white to 2. The program is template driven and can be customized to read any ascii text input source and translate it to any other, not just VZR.

software How many time have you forgotten to go off-line and left your PC connected to the Internet all night? I have, and know that it costs about R40. To prevent this, I created Watchdog, which is always resident and checks if you have an Internet connection going, then after 20 minutes asks you if you want to stay online. If no one responds withing 60 seconds, it takes the PC off-line, saving you a fortune!

software Telkom now offers a pre-payment telephone service. This is terrific if you have teenagers, staff or visitors who use up excessive call time. 1 master account and 5 subsidiary accounts can be set up. The problem is that connecting to the Internet or other elctronic services is now impractical as each user still has to key in their account number and secret code after the connection is made. This program takes care of that and automaticly forwards the Interent username and passwards after it provides Telkom with the account number and secret code. Very convenient.
