Howzit South Africa!

Today, we're very excited to announce our expansion into Cape Town, South Africa. With feet on the ground in this region, we'll be able to better support the South African accounting community. As of February 1st 2020, our new base will be up and running in Kaapstad, with a lekker new premise on Strand Street.

This news comes off the back of our A$26M Series B round, which we announced late last year.

Transforming your firm to better serve your clients

Guy Pearson, CEO of Ignition said, “Our successful growth in South Africa to date was a huge motivation for setting up our local operation. We really want to thank the South African community for your support and we can’t wait to discover more ways to help you seamlessly manage your client relationships through our platform.”

Our team in South Africa will be focused on partnering with our friends at Xero and Intuit to help accountants continue their adoption of cloud-based accounting software.

The significant adoption of cloud software in countries like Australia and the United Kingdom has demonstrated the opportunity and value for accountants to work smarter, not harder. Cloud technology has become the way forward for firms wanting to provide deeper insights, build a better experience, and strengthen relationships with their clients.

The local team is made up of Partnerships, Inside Sales, Customer Success and Account Managers. If you’re interested in looking at our career openings in South Africa you can view the job descriptions here.

Meet Will

Will Dutton is our first local representative for Ignition. We’re excited to welcome him into the business at such a time. Will is our Head of Partnerships for South Africa and is the best point of contact if you’d like to explore opportunities to partner and collaborate with Ignition.

Our full team in South Africa will start in February. We'll update you with events and opportunities to connect in your region.
