Cape Town, 25 July 2016 – iTouch Messaging Services (PTY) Ltd is pleased to announce that they have recently been awarded a Level 2 AAA Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) status, certified by Empowerdex evaluated under the generic scorecard.
Waheed Adam, Chairman of the company shared his excitement with us and had this to say.
” Economic Empowerment has always been a feature of our business style since the birth of our Group in 1988. The fact that we are a largely black organisation also means that most benefit has been within groups that are most needed to grow in order to balance our social and economic disparities in South Africa”. To achieve a Level 2 is only testimony of our achievements and comes as no surprise. However the award is a way for our clients and the rest of the market to evaluate our true intention and achievements, and with that we hope they will begin – in the case of new clients – or continue to support our business and in turn our Black Economic Empowerment program”.
“The iTouch Foundation also wishes to collaborate with other corporates and we invite interested parties to join us in our exciting efforts that are truly rewarding in every aspect”.
To be awarded level 2 status iTouch met and often exceeded requirements set out in the scorecard qualification with results verified by an independent authority.
