“The implementation process was seamless as we were guided by aNewSpring Africa throughout” says Gallon.

During her presentation in Rotterdam, Gallon explained how the platform had saved the bank millions of Rand in the past three years and how it has had a positive impact on the training culture within the organization. “The results speak for themselves” said Gallon.

“I am delighted to see the very real value that Bidvest Bank have unlocked using the aNewSpring platform. The results are really rather staggering and exceeded even my own expectations” said Paul Hanly, Managing Director of aNewSpring Africa
