About Us

An approachable company

IT partner to Businesses, Universities and Schools in the Western Cape

Gist has been an Information Technology partner to businesses, universities and schools in South Africa since 2000 when it was founded by friends who had a vision for a better-functioning support structure for smaller organisations in our country.

We pride ourselves in helping our clients choose the right software, systems and network applications for their business and to ensure that it keeps on working day in and day out.  Our company is still run by one of the original founders - Jaco Pieterse - who takes personal pride and responsibility in everything that we do.

At Gist you can be sure that you will get friendly, personal attention and accommodating service. We'll take care of you.


Better IT systems for South Africa

Our purpose is to build a better IT infrastructure for South Africa for future generations to work and learn better.

To achieve our purpose we will become the leading IT partner to SMEs and schools in the Western Cape and then South Africa.
