Jaco Voigt discusses AI, automating, innovating and embracing the power of technology and data to accelerate your business. It's important to remember that to understand the future you must understand the past, as it becomes clear in this podcast that what seems futuristic is actually the norm. We invite you to listen to the importance of embracing technology, keeping your business relevant, accelerating workloads, and encouraging discussions to map out your business’ start and end approach to embrace technology.

One way videos are a thing! Jaco Voigt chats to Jesse Bosch from Interview ME. As a subscription based or month-to-month product, Interview ME is a self-funded startup software platform business. Although focused on the benefits of building interviews and saving time recruiting talent for your business, any industry relying on one way information can make use of this platform. Asking interviewing questions to candidates and allowing them time to build their responses ensures that any recruiter or manager can watch back to back responses at a time suitable to them - without repeating the same questions over and over. With this programme, the candidate comes before the CV where potential can be identified in person rather than in piles of paper. The one way interview permutations are endless - doctors interviewing patients, schools doing student interviews, applications for post graduate programmes and more.

How often are you in contact with your technology partner? Is there value in the platform offering they invoice you for monthly? Jaco Voigt has a thought-provoking conversation with Jacques Malherbe, about the need for collaboration when acquiring technology due to fragmented value chains. As the procurement process becomes increasingly commoditised, businesses are experiencing the pain of having missing pieces in their technology solution puzzle. The trend is for technology solutions to be myopically bought, for today, rather than having technology partners do value trapping for their business by optimising their value offering by participating in skills and needs analysis of the businesses they supply.

Jaco and his guest discuss smart work and living space management. These emerging trends have been fast tracked and are underpinned by the need to become a less ‘pen and paper’ based society when collecting data to access a facility. The pandemic and PoPi Act have reassigned and evolved roles regarding the way information is collected, verified, processed and stored. Encrypted, safe and verified data is not only the future - but a necessity. Learn more about people flow management, access control via face recognition and hand scanning, and property management which includes security, parking and maintenance management.

Jaco is joined by a data specialist discussing how storage of data has evolved. Although efficiencies are evident and there is a smaller footprint of products and solutions available, so many businesses still err to enterprise class solutions and external hard drive saving. What businesses believe is cost-effective could be the pennywise scenario as power, cooling, holistic managing, back-ups and malfunction are not considered. Once again the new PoPI Act compliance is something to be considered. There is a price vs performance for storage solutions that should always be investigated. When last did you do a deep dive into what data you are storing? This is a journey that every business needs to walk with an expert, as your data is no different to the money in a bank account - store it wisely as you will miss it when it disappears!

Jaco is joined by Deanne from EDMA Systems as they talk about the digital transformation of people management. This software solution is all about efficiency, sustainability, business improvement and accurately costing employees. What started as an application to manage time sheets has grown into a software solution that not only automates and breaches personnel administration, but assists with onboarding of staff, disciplining staff and ensuring their health and safety. A focus on managing and costing staff that are working remotely or working flexi hours is one of the incredible benefits. In the paper intensive world of HR, this disruptive digital transformation is just what any business needs!

Jaco and his guest revisit the importance of business efficiency by managing data and embracing technology. The discussion centres around connectivity being the foundation of a successful business, rather than a grudge purchase. The questions any business needs to keep asking are about the cost of data loss, and protecting what they have. Your 'IT guy' is sometimes just a desktop technician, rather than an IT resource - and perhaps it's critical for your business to get objective advice on the benefits of system integration, cyber security and server virtualisation.

Jaco, as a conservationist at heart, chats to Dr Sara Andreotti about the importance of changing the “drop the nets to save our beaches” practice, as this is disrupting and killing our marine life. They discuss how the SharkSafe Barrier can ensure skills upliftment, jobs and exporting opportunities - while peacefully co-existing with sharks. With a bottom up approach, the community and holiday goers can encourage safer patrol of our shorelines with new and less invasive inventions.
