Smartcom was founded in May 2000 and originally operated as a Vodacom Service Provider to the Vodacom network. Never in a million years could we have imagined the exciting journey that awaited the Smartcom brand, our team and our customers! We saw that the world around us was rapidly innovating the way in which society communicated, and we knew that we wanted to be part of this journey. From day one, we focused on delivering quality ICT solutions, with a strong focus on mobile voice and data activations and upgrades. However, in the years since our inception, we have grown and expanded our service offering to reach almost every inch of the ICT realm. From the very first SIM card we sold, to the most recent company we helped with cost-saving fixed-data solutions.
In October 2007, Smartcom became an accredited partner (dealer) of Vodacom Service Provider (VSP), thus enabling us to become the poster child for the innovative and fast-paced industry that we’ve grown so affectionate of over the years.
The Smartcom ship is steered by our CEO, Mr. Bain Liversage. Bain is passionate, ambitious, innovative, thoughtful and extremely optimistic. Unfortunately, those are the only adjectives that we have space for. If we had more, we would also mention that he is an insightful leader with a wealth of ICT knowledge.
Smartcom’s Senior Management Team is headed by Caroline Greyling (Finance and HR), Francois Botes (IT and Operations), Madeleine Abrahams (Marketing and Retail) and De Niel van Rooi (Finance). Some might call them the Avengers of the South African telecoms industry. They have worked side by side for decades, and their fanaticism for ICT solutions, their obsession with customer service and their continuous craving for knowledge is positively contagious and always rubbing off on the rest of our team.
Accolades from Vodacom SA include being named Top EBU Vodacom Dealer of the year for two years in a row (2017 and 2018).
