About SmartBank and SmartBank Solution (Pty) Ltd

SmartBank is the brain child of David Hartley, a professional accountant who began working with Pastel back in 1990, who has teamed up with a very bright professional programmer and partner, Sylvain Ntumba, who wrote most of the current version of TurboCash and OSFinancials while working in that field 5 years ago. 

David’s appreciation of the bookkeeping environment and his keen eye for the future has lead to the development of a package that finally integrates modern advancements in banking and technology in a way that will save both bookkeeping time and money for his clients.

There are an estimated 180 000 Pastel users in South Africa, not to mention people using other bookkeeping software. SmartBank’s initial objective is to gain between five thousand and ten thousand active users. SmartBank also plans to expand internationally once he has managed to sell his first few thousand packages in South Africa.

The SmartBank software is now owned by a company called SmartBank Solution (Pty) Ltd (2012/097293/07) with David Hartley and Sylvain Ntumba being co directors.
