Customer success stories

  • Replacing Legacy Systems for Global Manufacturing Group

    Sappi is a leading global provider of everyday materials made from wood fibre-based renewable resources, with a customer base that extends across over 150 countries.

    SCAD Software was engaged to rewrite many of the 1,000+ legacy software systems at its Entra Paper Mill, SCA. Many of the systems had been developed in Oracle forms, Visual Basic, and dBase.

  • Risk Management Solution for the World’s Leading Diamond Company

    De Beers Group is the world’s leading diamond company, with expertise in diamond exploration, mining, grading, marketing, and retail.

    We helped the company develop a custom manufacturing software system that would restrict the level of access to high risk areas of the mine. These areas not only represented a safety risk, but also potential for thefts.

    The system we developed required complex integration with Siemens and Johnson Controls SCADA system for access control and camera integration. It was developed and deployed within four months and remained live in the mines for over a decade.

  • Traffic Control System for Huguenot Tunnel

    The Huguenot Tunnel is a major transportation link between the coastal plains of the Western Cape and South Africa’s interior.

    Almost four-kilometres long, the tunnel eliminates a 500 metre climb over the Du Toits Kloor Pass, saving travel time, vehicle wear and tear, and reducing accidents.

    SCAD Software was selected to develop a traffic control system for the tunnel. The mission- critical project involved complex integrations with a wide range of systems including the SCADA and PLS based systems.

Andy Fensham


After working as a software consultant to the global banking industry for six years, Andy has devoted the last two decades to realising his vision to transform the software development industry.

Since 1998, when he founded SCAD Software, Andy was aware that the business world was accumulating a vast and unsustainable level of technical debt, with legacy source code becoming a risk factor for organisations of all size. As markets change and digital transformation becomes integral to every business, Andy realised that out-of-date software would put the future of many organisations in jeopardy.

To address this risk, Andy developed a radical new approach to custom software development, which time and time again has delivered large-scale software projects 75% faster than other methods.

Andy is now overseeing the expansion of SCAD Software into new markets in Asia, Middle East, UK, Europe and North America as well as extending the portfolio to include a number of packaged solutions.
