Our team’s combined experience of over 60 x years in the academic book trade coupled with a zeal for life and our ability to leverage from custom developed and integrated solutions to our corporate clients has resulted in exponential growth over the past 4 years with the demand from new institutions exceeding our current ability to onboard them.

Some of the institutions we currently serve are owned by JSE listed companies whilst others are independently owned. Wize Books has recently been approved by EXCO of the largest Business School in Southern Africa. Accordingly, each institution brings a unique blend of requirements business logic and integrations requirements (both hardware and software) with the existing platform essentially functioning as the middleware/base for multiple front ends.
