Averting the storm

UCS Group may be 30 years old, but it`s not showing its age, much like founder and CEO John Bright.

01 January 2009

John Bright was involved in the IT industry for ten years before founding UCS Group in 1978, listing the company on the JSE in September 1998. The company started as a bureau and is now an international, billion-rand software solutions organisation specialising in the retail industry. In the context of the overall SA IT industry, R1-billion in turnover may not sound like much, but 80 percent of that is generated from its own products and services.

In August, UCS made a move into the financial services sector with the acquisition of Computer Software Consultants (CSC) for R67.6 million.
