20 years and going strong

MASERU – COMPUTER Business Solutions (CBS), which was started in 1998 with just three workers, has grown into a major employer.

The company now employees 75 people, with 57 of these on permanent contracts.
This was said by the Managing Director of CBS Dr Mohlalefi Sefika at an event to celebrate the institute’s 20th anniversary last Friday.
Dr Sefika said CBS was selected as the best Information Technology (IT) consulting firm in Lesotho for 2018 by PMR Africa.

In 2009, it was chosen as the top Information Communication Technology (ICT) Small Medium and Micro Enterprise (SMME) Company in Africa in 2009.
He said CBS is a profitable company.

’’We are a tendering company and we also have a global recognition and accreditation. We are an award winning company,’’ he said.
Dr Sefika said the company is now targeting to compete globally, noting that the company’s customer base has increased while the assets and properties portfolio is also growing.
CBS is the ICT firm aiming to help bring digital transformation to organisations and societies.
He said the company is also involved in community social responsibility.

Dr Sefika said the company sponsors soccer, tertiary students’ attachment and donates to disadvantaged communities. Recently, the company donated 50 mattresses to Help Lesotho.

He said CBS offers services such as development of software applications and E-service, strategic IT consulting, infrastructure, clouding and Data solutions and other services such as providing training and capacity building.
He said they started by developing software applications in 1999. The company saw a gap in the market as people were selling new computers but no one was automating computers and developing software.
’’We didn’t waste any more opportunity to fill in that gap,’’ he said.

He said they saw it vital to partner with international investors as they have global partners whereby they are Lenovo guarantee centre.
The company also empowers its employees by offering them scholarships for academic studies, financial assistance for professional certifications, meaningful employment benefits and recognition awards.

’’CBS brings about life changing projects,’’ he said.

Former CBS employee ‘Mamohapeloa Mokuoane said the company was like family.
