CAPTAINS HONOURED I was privileged to join a historic meeting of 42

A highlight, aside from catching up with old friends

National Test Captains who gathered recently

and team mates, was the signing by each captain

for a unique ceremony in an event to mark the

of the Springbok Opus, an honour in itself! The

countdown to a major new rugby museum.

Captains’ Edition will record a new history of South


African Rugby.

will feature a modern, interactive rugby museum, Springbok shop and ‘Springbok Trials’ rugby skills zone. The Springbok Experience replaces SARU’s former museum in Boundary Road, Newlands and is set to provide an eye-opening contrast to traditional museums when it opens in September.

Take charge of

information chaos with a

document management strategy! Large organisations struggling to keep on top of the growing volumes of documents streaming into their businesses need to look at document management systems as a means of bringing order to the chaos. Managing a deluge of documents from sources as varied as fax, email and post is a major cost for most large enterprises. With paper usage growing rather than declining and email volumes rising exponentially, this is a problem that is likely to deepen over the next decade. In addition, the growing number of laws and

regulations around information storage and auditability of business processes that most enterprises face, means that organisations need to bring their documents under control. Itec’s document management system that integrates with printers and multifunctional products (MFPs) streamlines workflow and brings order to the many documents that need to be archived and occasionally retrieved is how we complete the “total solution� circle! For more information on this, give me a shout or any one of the Itec Innovate Sales team.
