Sonum International to open new office in Cape Town, SA
February 2022, Johannesburg – Just two years after entering the African market by opening an office in Johannesburg, Sonum International will be making another commitment to its EMEA growth by opening a Cape Town office in March.
According to Adrian van der Merwe, one of the founders of Sonum Africa, when the company started in Johannesburg, it immediately implemented some very appealing projects for large companies, which formed a solid basis and led to the search for new opportunities.
“Cape Town is home to sectors such as insurance, food and clothing retail which we are primed to address,” says Adrian. “Our presence in Cape Town is a fantastic opportunity for us to become the leader in implementing and providing enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions to clients in the region. The nature of our work puts us in our clients’ finance departments and involves installation, training, consulting and managed services, so it makes sense to be where they are.”
Sonum International is a Diamond Partner of OneStream, a best-in-class intelligent finance platform that unifies and reduces the complexity of financial operations. Unlike modular EPM solutions, OneStream offers an integrated platform to simplify and optimize financial operations. By delivering multiple solutions in one application, OneStream unifies processes for corporate performance management, from business planning and analytics to optimisation.
Sonum International operates across Europe, North America, and Asia. The company is the only consultancy with offices in Africa to gain Diamond Partner status from OneStream, a mark of the level at which it operates.
Chris Badenhorst, Managed Services Lead of Sonum Africa, says OneStream is the sort of intelligent platform that makes sense to large South African corporates because it’s a single solution. “Sonum’s customer-centric mindset is at the core of what we do and how we operate. Being physically present in the same region as our clients ensures our proven and effective implementations and is firmly in line with our philosophy of Less Effort, More Impact,” he says.
The addition of a Cape Town office is expected to grow Sonum Africa’s local headcount to 50 by the end of 2022. “The timing of a new office in Cape Town after all the hardships imposed by Covid couldn’t be better,” says Adrian. “We know there is a high level of tech capability in Cape Town, and we’re looking to employ the best among them.”
