About

A BIT ABOUT COMPANY HISTORY

Praxis is an IT services company.

27 Years ago, the three founders of Praxis had a dream to create a company that was non-racial, innovative and fun. This was a time before BEE and yet Praxis has had black ownership since inception. From then to now it has been quite a journey with our products being used by tens of thousands of clients at organisations in South Africa as well as internationally.

Praxis provides niche software, software development, financial systems, business intelligence solutions, and network implementation and management. Eighty diverse professionals bring passion, IT expertise and business understanding to our team.

We have worked extensively in the public sector over the past 27 years, particularly in the areas of skills development and education, and has developed an excellent understanding of the business requirements in that environment. We have also developed specific expertise in bespoke systems development and integration, and grant management.

Our staff members are continually trained and challenged to stay up to date with the latest trends. This enables us to understand how technology can help you meet your business goals.

Our head office is in Johannesburg, South Africa, but we also have offices in Durban, Nelspruit, East London, Bloemfontein and Cape Town.

CSI activities

Praxis has supported social and community development since inception. With the youth fearlessly embracing and growing the IT industry, we’ve been formally running school-leaving internships and graduate internships since 2002.

In addition, since 1993 more than 40 young black school leavers and University of Technology (formerly technikon) graduates have been given their first jobs at Praxis and have been supported through our recruitment programme. All of them are now successfully employed at Praxis or elsewhere in the industry.

One of our founding directors, Mirriam Zwane, is involved in gardens for pensioners in Soweto, sewing projects, ABET (Adult Basic Education and training) and the rehabilitation of young offenders. Currently we train and employ over 350 interns.
