Software Development

Over seventeen (17) years, CBS has rolled out solid software systems and web applications in virtually every industry: Banking, Insurance, Telecommunication, Utilities, Health, Retail, Government, Manufacturing, Micro-Finance, and Education.

CBS has excellent capacity in software development and consulting. We are a Microsoft Certified Partner, a VMware Partner, a Cisco Select Partner, and the only Oracle Approved Education Provider in Lesotho. Our developers follow internationally renowned methods, with our training centre approved by several international bodies (e.g., Oracle University, ICDL and Prometric). We deliver top quality software systems, training programs, and consulting solutions, judged by global standards.

The nature of software applications that we have engineered is diverse, ranging from management information systems, to e-commerce systems, to online databases, to intranets. We use proven approaches and tools in our development, support, and engineering. Many CBS applications are web-enabled and cloud-ready, evidenced by current, highly successful deployments for clients such as Lesotho Government (Budget framework application).

We design, host and maintain feature-rich Web portals using state-of-the art, ‘intelligent’ software. Software engineering projects are executed by a team of highly capable, creative cyber system constructors and software professionals. To date, we have a catalogue of more than 100 interactive web portals and mobile applications in our portfolio.

Infrastructure Services

CBS is gratified to supply the world’s best computer brands and security devices, from IBM, to HP, to CISCO, to mention some key models. We are a Cisco Select Partner, well on track to reach the Premier level. A wide range of infrastructure services is available, including maintenance, troubleshooting, and configuration of sophisticated IT equipment and devices (firewalls, servers, routers, switches, etc.)

We provide cabling and installation of high speed networks (Fibre, Cat 6, etc.), including reliable wireless deployments. We ensure good returns on data network investments by assisting with the identification of the right information systems to run on the networks and the right in-house skills for sustaining the projects. The organizational needs drive the infrastructure requirements. We go beyond providing “boxes and cables” to ensure that your computing environment is appropriate and secure for your ICT aspirations and performance goals.

Training & Capacity Building

CBS actively trains individuals and groups from Government, Corporations, Schools, and Small to Medium Enterprises. Both on-the-job and class-room type of training are offered, with eLearning available on select courses such as Oracle. For many serious organizations and individuals, CBS is the training center of choice. A wide variety of courses is available in IT and Business. Many international certification programs are offered. CBS is an accredited testing center for all Prometric exams (including Microsoft certifications). We strive to meet the special training requirements of any client in the area of IT.

Managed Services

We encourage ICT outsourcing for customers who do not wish to make big investments in ICT personnel training and retention. CBS will collaborate with the client by running its ICT function and help with strategy formulation. Example services include network management and web application hosting. CBS has modern technology that enables the provision of these services intelligently and efficiently.

Currently, more than fifty organizations have outsourced certain components of their ICT services to CBS (e.g., data networks and web portal systems). This way, the organizations are better able to focus on their core business while still enjoying every benefit of competitive ICT services.

Project Management & ICT Advisory

CBS projects are planned, executed, and closed within a methodology that focuses on maximizing benefits and minimizing costs within an acceptable timeframe. Projects are approached from multiple views and perspectives, accommodating each stakeholder and assessing risks.  The aim of meeting the objectives within the scope and framework of the brief is achieved by the application of the highest professional project management practices -- according to renowned standards (e.g., ITIL and PRINCE II). 

CBS frequently acts either as a prime contractor or sub-consultant in complex, multi-million projects involving global IT players (e.g., for Millennium Challenge Account – Lesotho).  We are suitably qualified to assist clients with the understanding and definition of large and intricate projects, including communication of project benefits to stakeholders and derivation of concrete terms of reference. Where the project is implemented by a third party, CBS can manage the project and continually assess the deliverables for conformance to agreed standards and performance goals. Many organizations (both local and international) have maximized their project returns by planning and executing their projects rigorously with CBS.
