Sage ERP X3 to help MAD end spreadsheet chaos, improve reporting to corporate partners

14/04/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


MAD (Make A Difference), a non-profit organisation founded by former Springbok captain Francois Pienaar, is implementing the Sage ERP X3 and Sage CRM business solutions to streamline its business processes, enhance relationships with stakeholders, and improve its access to reporting information. Parity Software is the Sage ERP business partner overseeing the implementation.

Pienaar and a group of like-minded individuals shared a vision to develop talented scholars into leaders by financially assisting and supporting them to obtain an exceptional education. In 2003, to realise this significant ambition, they formed MAD – Make A Difference. Twelve years later, MAD holds true to the shared vision of the founding members to make a difference in the lives of talented young South Africans with leadership potential.

The primary focus of MAD is to identify and offer bursaries to academically talented young leaders, from Grade 8 until completion of tertiary education, covering all academic fees, mentoring, work experience, an annual leadership summit, and more, through the individual education programme.
