In a growing environment we need to challenge the status quo and ask ourselves “why”. “Why” we are doing this in this way, or, “why” are we doing it at all - does it add value? 1. Ukuhleleka Yini ongayenza nsuku zonkeebonisa ukuhleleka? Kulesimo esithuthukayo sidinga ukuqophisana nesimo kanti sizibuze ukuthi kungani. Kungani senza izinto ngalendlela, noma, kungani empeleni sikwenza – Ingabe kuba nezinzuzo? 1. Ukwenza izinto ngcono Wenzani imihla ngemihla efuna ukwenziwa lula? Kwixesha elikhulayo esiphila kulo kufuneka simelane nezimo esikuzo sizibuze ukuba “Ngoba”. Kutheni sisenza lento ngalendlela, okanye, “kutheni “sisenza lento – ingaba yongeza uxabiseko? 1. Nolofatso Ke eng se o sedirago letsatsi ka letsatsi seo seka nolofatswago? Mo go goleng ga tulo rehloka go tshalentsa seemo lego te potsisa ‘’Goreng’’. ‘’Goreng’’ re dira se katsela ye, goba, ‘’Goreng’’ ka tsohle re se dira – ekaba se oketsa thlokagalo?

3. STRUCTURE In what way are you serving a system instead of the system serving you? Ask yourself how you can simplify a system, process or structure so that the task can be done with speed and efficiency in a way that serves you, the employee.

I would like to congratulate you on the superior caliber of sales consultants you are employing at Maxidor. I had the greatest pleasure of meeting Dawie yesterday when he came to my home to give me a quote.
I would like to thank you greatly for the superb product and professional, helpful service that you and your team have provided. Please thank all those involved in the installation at my home; those in the factory, the chap that helped me get the windows open, the team that fitted the guards, and the admin staff. Odion, I will have no hesitation in recommending you and the Maxidor team.
He expressed how proud he was to be associated with Maxidor and its products and by the time he was finished I was excited to have your products in my home. His service was extremely professional and his manner very caring and considerate towards our home and our safety. I signed the quote immediately and was actually happy to part with 50k this morning. Well done, Dawie is an asset to your company and I wouldn’t hesitate to call upon him again. - Jackie Terry
- Gail Steyn Good day Joe,
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Maxidor for the excellent quality of the Maxidor products you have provided us with. Lawrence, the salesperson, did a great job with explaining to us all the products that Maxidor offered and met all our needs. Rowen co-ordinated our delivery date requirements very efficiently. The service we got from Robert and Xolani, who came to do the installation, was excellent and we appreciate it. Thank you for a job well done. We will definitely recommend Maxidor to everyone we come across Regards,
My door has been installed in my home and as requested maintenance was done on the other door previously installed by Maxidor. Thank you for your immediate response and the professional manner in which you dealt with all your arrangements. It has been a pleasure, once again, to do business with you - and Maxidor in general. - Leanne Wieruszowski
I had just finished constructing my house and was in desperate need of security gates. Geshen Chetty was referred to me by a friend of mine. He had passed on Geshen’s number to me. I called Geshen on a Friday to set a time to meet with me. He was unable to meet with me the next day, but he assured me that he would see me on that Sunday. He called me on Sunday to confirm that we were still going to meet and indeed we did. He advised me on the appropriate security that I needed and gave me the price at my home. He also catered for my budget and we came to an agreement. Now, I have not in a long time seen that kind of commitment by any sales person, sacrificing his family time to care for mine. Geshen also assured me that it would be installed by Saturday and it was. Now that’s going the extra mile. I am sure that he is a great asset to Maxidor. Geshen, thank you and keep up the excellent work. As for the installation: The installer was Derick. I have not seen a more professional worker/ installer. He was too good in what he was doing. There was no dirt left over, my walls were not messed up. He was just professional. Thank you Maxidor and now just like my friend, I will definitely recommend Geshen and Maxidor. Great work all round. - Denver Gengiah

With the installation of the security gate in the charity shop we can now rest and know our staff is safe. - Animal Cruelty League Hi Odion, My gate was installed today. I am thrilled, it is just what I wanted! Thank you for the excellent service and prompt supply. Please pass on my thanks to your office staff. - Caroline Diack

FINANCIAL FOUNDATIONS: Feature 3 of 5 While credit has its uses, many consumers don’t understand, or take the time to investigate, the small print. As a result, they end up paying much more than what they need to and can afford. Here is the third of
5 FINANCIAL FOUNDATIONS shared by Capitec Bank:
Understand credit life insurance Credit life insurance is a policy that covers your debt should you die, be retrenched or become disabled. It’s an important part of a credit agreement, as most credit providers won’t approve a credit request if you don’t have life cover in place. However, be warned that this is where you need to act cautiously when approaching credit providers. The National Credit Act (NCA) stipulates that credit agreements should outline all costs to you before you sign, including elements like credit life insurance. It’s important to know if this is included in the interest rate and if you can avoid the extra cost if you have your own life cover. The Act also enables you to shop around for the best-priced insurance. Some credit providers include it at no charge.
