Astraia Technology, a professional business process management consulting firm, will be hosting an informative business breakfast in conjunction with One Channel, a modern Cloud ERP solution provider. Industry leaders will discuss the digitisation, current and future trends in generating business value through ERP.


The legacy of enterprise management systems is one of poor quality reporting, inefficiencies, security breaches and extremely high running costs. Companies using these outdated systems urgently need to adapt to the changing landscape that allows for any-where, any-device access.

Post-modern ERP systems like Acumatica already enable customers to view complete information anywhere, anytime, helping them to run the business from any location.

These cloud-based systems cater for the global realities of this changing landscape, allowing for the standardisation of legislative governance rules around procurement, budgeting, workflow approvals, notifications and audit.

Thought leader in ERP Clifford Martin is a highly experienced and versatile business oriented IT executive with extensive experience in IT governance, project management, ERP, organisational transformation, strategic planning and outsourcing. He is passionate about utilising IT to the benefit of business and with a good appreciation of business operations, processes and principles.

One Channel CEO Bernard Ford has 23 years’ hands-on experience in business applications, accounting and ERP software in the mid-tier market. He is an industry veteran and leader in the field of true cloud-based ERP applications, having introduced Acumatica - a modern cloud ready software - to the local market.

The business breakfast will be held at The River Club on 17 November from 09:00 – 11:30. For more information contact Mary Grossett on (021) 404-0560 or email
