Goodwill Consulting
In the early 80's, soon after the arrival of the personal computer the first accounting systems appeared. Ingenuity Unlimited Software (IUS) produced the ACCPAC® range of business applications. (It also became much easier to convince a company director to buy an IBM computer. An "Apple" computer on which to run your business, was not taken seriously). MSB focussed on selling, installing and training on ACCPAC®. Once strategy was added to the MSB offering, since technology could not stand alone, Goodwill Consulting was formed. A prime example of the marriage of the two disciplines was Goodwill's work in the early 90s in setting up the strategy and ICT systems for the Start-Up Fund, a not-for-profit microfinance institution. This was the seed for the establishment of The Strategy Institute of South Africa.
