Introduction: IEMAS – Supply Chain Management (SCM)

Based on various challenges besetting most public sector institutions, especially local government, C-Sonke identified a need for full automation of supply chain management processes for municipalities and municipal entities in South Africa. This need was addressed in a form of a solution called IEMAS – Supply Chain Management (SCM).

IEMAS-SCM is not a financial or accounting system, but a process flow and compliance management system that serves as an integrated solution to ensure a complete, compliant and auditable end to end supply chain management processes. IEMAS-SCM can integrate with your municipality’s or municipal entity’s current financial system for optimal results.

IEMAS – SCM was fully custom developed in South Africa, by young entrepreneurs and it is a wholly black owned product.
