First Technology Pty (Ltd)
We are only interested in two things, our customers and our employees. We believe that if we can get the balance right with these two audiences, we’ll always be on the right track. As a result, our company culture is quite different. Yes, there are high-pressure situations, but only because we want to keep our customers happy, not because we’re chasing after short-term profits.

A Business Model With a Difference
What sets First Technology Group apart is our business model.
Most national companies are led by a head office in Johannesburg or Cape Town. This is usually done to consolidate and reduce the cost of back- office functions. The downside of this approach is that it slows decision-making and reduces agility.
The First Technology Group operates differently. We have complete, independent companies operating in South Africa’s three primary economic hubs: Johannesburg, Cape Town and KwaZulu-Natal.
Each of these companies are run completely independently of the others, with its own back-office staff, engineering, marketing , finance, HR & including a call centre and helpdesk.
