Message from Bran Systems’ Managing Director

Our uniqueness lies in the fact that our flagship products have all been developed in-house by our team in a vertical spectrum covering Boardroom to Shop floor.

Our product portfolio spans across the following:

  1. ERP Solutions: SAP Business One and All in One.
  2. General Solutions (packaged and bespoke): Some of these are High Bay Warehouse Automation, Product Tracking with Barcode and RFID, Quality Feedback Solution (QFS) and Business Partner Locator solution.
  3. Turnkey Automation Solutions: Covers PLC/SCADA programming, mechanical (fabrication) and electrical (panel building/field wiring).
  4. Managed Services: Tying all of the above together, we have managed solutions comprising project management, systems integration and outsourcing and support.

We partner with industry-leading vendors like SAP, Siemens and Microsoft to bring our solutions to the market.

We pride ourselves as being a lean, people-centred organisation with Excellence, Experience and Expertise being our central themes.

Our leadership team members have each on average 20 years of project management, automation or software development experience behind them; and have worked in several high profile projects with various blue chip clients. A “Never Give Up” attitude runs in our DNA with several marathons, Iron Man events and cycle tours, including the conquest of Mt Kilimanjaro, having been achieved by our team members.

We translate this into our project execution, giving us an enviable 100% success track record in the projects we have undertaken – with some of our clients having been serviced by our team for over 20 years and the core team having been together for at least 15 years.

We are a level 1 BEE organisation with strategic intention to grow our footprint regionally and nationally, contributing to job creation and retention of key skills seen as being vital to the South African economy.

We would be delighted to be of service.

Thanking you.
