We won’t lie our software does some amazing things. But what’s a great product without a great story?
Mpowered started its advisory services for B-BBEE and transformation during 2001.
With the implementation of the BEE Codes in 2007, under the leadership of new management, Mpowered took flight as a specialist B-BBEE advisory firm. With services ranging from B-BBEE strategy formulation and implementation to verification preparation.
Mpowered also became a forerunner in web-based B-BBEE IT Systems, offering a B-BBEE database system as well as a scorecard calculator and scenario planner. In 2008, the decision was made to reinvent our B-BBEE IT systems and aim towards becoming the leading B-BBEE IT systems provider in South Africa.
The Supplier Management System was created and launched with the new and improved BEEtoolkit short on its heels. With a large client base of active systems users, we decided to cease operating our B-BBEE consulting business, choosing instead to focus entirely on our software solutions.
We are all about excellence – striving for the very best in everything that we do.
This applies not only to the products and technologies that we develop for our customers but also to our internal processes. The goal is to take leading positions in a highly competitive environment, and it is shared by everyone at Mpowered, irrespective of the business unit, function or city in which they work.
Our employees put their passion, pride and enthusiasm into achieving a constructive and uplifting attitude to our internal and external audiences – the task of our claim. Our corporate culture and our vision, mission and values unite our diverse workforce and provide standards for how we conduct our business.
It’s really the people that make Mpowered the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favour ability over experience. We strive to maintain the open culture often associated with startups, in which everyone is a hands-on contributor and feels comfortable sharing ideas and opinions.
Our office is designed to encourage interactions between people within and across teams, and to spark conversation about work as well as play. And when not at work, Mpowered troopers pursue interests ranging from cycling to cooking, from golfing to gaming.
Mission & Vision
Mpowered’s vision and mission is to empower companies to drastically reduce the work involved in achieving direction, insight and management of their B-BBEE journey.
We believe that our software pushes the boundaries in terms of our unique service, intellect and technology. Our competitive advantage was founded on our experience and expertise and is continuously being upheld by our commitment to excellence, customer service and innovation. Encompassing principles of respect, flexibility and positivity, we impart a progressive footprint within the B-BBEE Industry.
The are the values that guide our business, our product development, and our brand. They’re what we look for in every employee. As our company continues to evolve and grow, these four values remain constant.
Every day we try to build useful products that people lust after. Building with heart means really caring about what we’re making and doing–it’s a mission, not just a job. When we build with balance we take into account how initiatives and decisions will affect our colleagues, clients, and stakeholders.
Whether you’re working with pixels or code, details will make the difference and we are all about difference. More specifically, details that places our software a cut above everything else.
We want all Mpowered employees to feel like they work with Mpowered, not for Mpowered. We think it’s important to have fun with your colleagues while working and contributing to the MBS team.
We think Gandhi had it right when he said, “We need to be the change we wish to see in the world”. At Mpowered we encourage everyone to create positive change. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our company, our products, and our environment.
