Office 365 finds a home in unexpected places

The technological world is dominated by innovation founded in world famous places like California, New York, London, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul.

Moving closer to home, names like Cape Town and Johannesburg stick out as homes of technological innovation. However, through the use of Office 365 and SharePoint, GTconsult – one of Africa’s fastest growing and innovative tech companies – has found a home in the heartland of the once mighty Zulu Kingdom.

GTconsult rather unexpectedly expanded to Durban in 2013 instead of Johannesburg; the question on everybody’s mind was why this was the case.

The Durban SharePoint community and market share was very small in 2011, and most companies in the region had never even heard of Office 365.  While Bradley Geldenhuys – Founder and CEO of GTconsult – was attending to family business, he saw a key growth opportunity and decided that the best move for the company was to relocate and build a team to serve the expansion market.

Ever since this bold and courageous move, clients in Durban have benefitted massively from the local presence of a SharePoint and Office 365 partner of GTconults calibre and have repaid the company in kind time and again. To this day, GTconsult remains the only Gold Microsoft Partner in the region that focuses on the Microsoft Collaboration stack.

Since opening in the heart of the Durban CBD, the GTconsult team has moved to a more relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to enhancing focus and strategising. The upper highway region of Hillcrest has amazing views into the Valley of a Thousand Hills where the GTconsult team has now over ten highly skilled and competent employees who service a number of clients in the region.

The GTconsult Durban team is growing phenomenally as the Hillcrest office offers a relaxed atmosphere and great working environment which produces the dedicated skills that benefits clients in the best possible way.
