									Vicitude Inks Business Intelligence Partnership with Yellowfin SA

Cape Town-based software specialist, Vicitude Business Solutions, has signed a reseller
agreement with Yellowfin South Africa, the official distributor for Yellowfin in Sub-
Saharan Africa.

Melbourne, VIC, Australia, July 25, 2013 -- The agreement will see Vicitude offer
Yellowfin’s easy-to-use Business Intelligence (BI) solution, and associated training
and implementation services, to its clients and businesses across South Africa.

“Vicitude has been exposed to Yellowfin’s BI solution for over a year, offering it
as an OEM reporting solution on top of our Active Service Desk implementations,”
said Gerhard van Rensburg, Managing Director (MD) of Vicitude. “We’ve always
been impressed with the rich functionality yet ‘easy to implement and use’
characteristics of the product. From the outset, our vision was to become a full partner
and offer Yellowfin as a complete BI reporting solution.”

Premie Naicker, MD of Yellowfin South Africa, said that the alliance would help expand
Yellowfin’s presence throughout the region.

“Vicitude’s wealth of experience in a wide variety of customer environments, as
well as its focus on the customer, were instrumental in the formation of the
partnership,” said Naicker. “We believe that it creates a solid foundation to meet
the demand for consumer-oriented and easy-to-implement BI solutions.”

A customer-driven company, Vicitude’s focus is on those elements that allow it to
provide real value, not just technology, in mutually beneficial relationships with its
clients, according to van Rensburg. Van Rensburg also said that Yellowfin’s focus on
simplicity, interactivity, and ease of use made the product a perfect addition to the
company’s product portfolio.

“With the formation of Yellowfin SA, and the consequent benefits of localised support
and pricing, the decision to partner and become a VAR aligned with our strategy
perfectly,” said van Rensburg. “Having already built-up extensive experience
around the solution, Vicitude is ideally positioned to hit the ground running, with the
capability to provide our customers with the sales and service support they’ve come
to expect.”

“BI is crucial to anyone who wants to keep track of all aspects of business
performance – from major conglomerates to smaller establishments with less than 100
employees,” said Naicker. “After all, it doesn’t matter how big or small a
business is because, in the end, they all work towards the same goal – to increase
revenue. Yellowfin has a deep understanding of the everyday problems faced by
businesses, and we look forward to working with Vicitude to help South African
companies achieve improved agility and better insight.”
Multiple award-winning Yellowfin is a recognised leader in the industry, achieving
accolades for its ease of use and value.
