SmartBank is the brain child of David Hartley and Sylvain Ntumba. David Hartley is a professional accountant who began working with Pastel back in 1990, who has teamed up with a very bright professional software developer and partner, Sylvain Ntumba, who wrote most of TurboCash and OSFinancials accounting packages since 1999.
David’s appreciation of the bookkeeping environment and his keen eye for the future has led to the development of a package that finally integrates modern advancements in banking and technology in a way that will save both bookkeeping time and money for his clients.
Currently there are an estimated 180 000 Pastel users in South Africa, not to mention people using other bookkeeping software and we foresee tremendous growth using the SmartBank Bank Manager that will assist bookkeepers in SAVING over 90% of their cash bookkeeping TIME and COSTS.
SmartBank’s initial objective is to gain between five thousand and ten thousand active users. SmartBank also plans to expand internationally once he has managed to sell his first few thousand packages in South Africa.
The SmartBank software is now owned by a company called SmartBank Solution (Pty) Ltd (2012/097293/07) with David Hartley and Sylvain Ntumba being co directors.
