Our Free BEE Management Tool to Help You Manage Compliance

Apr 30 ,2019

 

We have developed the BEE-Connex app to simplify the way companies can procure BEE-related services and manage their compliance with the B-BBEE codes. In essence, the tool makes B-BBEE management easier, helping companies to connect with essential service providers and have the assurance of quality services.

The BEE app breaks through the jargon and mystery surrounding training, procurement, and certification for a solid B-BBEE score. It simplifies the process for businesses, thereby ensuring that more companies can participate in the process and thus speed up the economic empowerment of previously disadvantaged groups. It is a tool that levels the playing field by giving small and medium business owners access to essential services from our online platform and through the app.

Why Use a BEE App?

Anything that stays the same for a prolonged period, stagnates. Your business needs to change with time, which means that you may need to procure new BEE suppliers. In addition, your business grows and its structure changes, and you need to ensure compliance with B-BBEE requirements according to its size and management profile.

However, with more and more BEE suppliers entering the market to provide services ranging from verification to consultation, training, and procurement, it is no longer a straightforward process in partnering with the most appropriate, trusted, and accredited suppliers.

With more BEE suppliers on the scene, it does not mean they all follow the best practices. You want to ensure that whomever you use, they are reputable and have the best interest of your company in mind. You want to use a provider that has a proven record of accomplishment and understands the changes in legislation. Such a supplier does not mind being held accountable for their actions.

We have worked with hundreds of clients over the years and have experienced the complexities surrounding BEE compliance. As such, we have realised that far too many businesses must navigate complicated jargon and struggle to find accredited verification agencies and reputable consultants.

Our solution is the BEE-Connex app, which is a BEE management tool that is the first of its kind. It makes it as straightforward as it gets to be matched with reputable and relevant BEE service providers. You can keep track of appointments and progress of your BEE compliance and suppliers. As your needs change, you can simply update your requirements and be matched with the suppliers that match your requirements.
