Being prepared and flexible enough to deal with contingencies is what differentiates excellence from mediocrity in service provision.

Information management lies at the heart of effective decision making and business management. The technology available today has effectively resulted in the “paperless office”. This, and the ease with which executives are able to travel internationally has made organisation and decision-makers dependent upon computers and mobile phone communications. While technological advances make information accessible and communication possible from anywhere around these systems are easily subject to interception and misuse. S3AFRICA will assist clients to design effective systems and procedures for the handling, storage and destruction of hard copy information as well as for the secure transmission of commercially sensitive material.
