iStratgo gives small businesses big human capital capabilities

iStratgo re-signs as HR Indaba partner for the second year running.

Human capital software provider iStratgo has re-signed as a partner for the HR Indaba, which will be taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre on 14 & 15 October 2020. The company equips businesses with all the tools they need to improve employee performance, increase workforce engagement, and gauge employee performance, among other things. The platform has even been lauded by FinancesOnline, a top review platform for B2B software systems, for delivering on its value proposition. 

iStratgo’s niche market is made up of small and medium organisations with up to 1,000 employees which are using manual spreadsheets for HR and performance management processes. We estimate this market to made up of at least 100,000 organisations in South Africa alone. The typical user profile is an HR Manager who is managing up to 1,000 employees and running leave, training, people and performance management processes and reports on MS Excel templates.  

Founder and CEO Ishmael Dube says iStratgo is different because it is on the cutting of innovation and is always looking for better ways to build, implement, market and sell technology. 

“Innovations in the pipeline include a new reward system which involves earning points for specific actions (Gamification) within the system. These points can be used to buy vouchers, park run entries, gym membership and so forth,” says Ishmael, adding that they also plan to develop an integration to wellness apps in order to give a holistic view of employee wellbeing as well as an instant feedback and chat function, which will allow organisations to meet the Generation Y and X  connectedness needs. 

“In the near future, the system will be integrated with insurance and medical aid administrators to provide better personalisation of employee benefits. Lastly, we plan to introduce the first pre-paid software purchase model.”

.As a silver partner, iStratgo will have an exhibition stand at the HR Indaba, which will be the largest of its kind in South Africa. The conference and expo will give HR professionals an opportunity to learn everything they need to know about the latest HR technology, HR strategy, company culture, labour laws, recruitment, employee engagement and HR leadership. It will also bring together thousands of colleagues, suppliers, platforms, universities, specialists, recruitment agencies, CHROs and thought leaders.
