DIGITAL SOLUTIONS
TO UNIQUELY
AFRICAN PROBLEMS

WE SPECIALISE IN UNDERSTANDING DISTINCTIVE BUSINESS CHALLENGES IN ORDER TO CREATE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION.

OUR AFRICAN
FOOTPRINT

As a South African company WWC operates from offices in both Cape Town & Johannesburg. However, our vision is to vastly increase our presence across Africa, partnering with businesses from within the continent as well as those aspiring to increase their African footprint. We are currently active in Ghana, Cameroon, Uganda, Zambia and our home-base South Africa, with recent relations in Egypt, Zimbabwe and Namibia. We believe in realising the potential of our continent through the power of people & technology.

HOW WE DO IT

Our change management and product innovation services are tailored to realise the true potential of African organisations and markets.

PEOPLE

We have a strong change management competency where we work with senior teams in managing an evolution to a digital future. This involves facilitated change management programs where we aim to first understand the specific digital change management needs of the business in question and in turn build solutions for managing this change in a tailored manner.

TECHNOLOGY

WWC’s focus around technology relates to our intention to work with clients who look to build solutions which are more than simply a branding exercise, what we term digital products. These are solutions which play a pivotal role in the interaction a business has with its customer and are not simply a digital brand execution. To this extent we help identify, create and sell these digital products. From web interfaces to native mobile applications, our internal team of specialists and network of best-of-breed partners means that we are able to realise any digital solution, develop strong strategy around the solution and deliver on the strategy.
