About our Company

WorkPool is a successful, dynamic software company based near the N1 City, Century City area. We’ve been developing web-based solutions for many years. Our clients span multiple industries and are of varying sizes (small businesses to large corporates) in SA and now expanding to the UK and Europe.

About WorkPool

Our primary focus is on our product, WorkPool (a business nervous system / business management platform), that helps companies to work smarter and get more done, in less time, with greater control. Our core platform includes functions such as tasks, processes, CRM, email, time, document management, etc. as well as automated intelligence and system integration. We also do research and consulting work and build prototypes for clients who are pushing the boundaries or disrupting the status quo in terms of technology and automation. What we do shapes the way other people work and businesses operate.

About our Team

We’re a small, but power-packed development team of intelligent professionals with no place for politics or drama. We let the code and our deliveries speak for themselves :) Everyone matters. We learn from each other. No one is boxed in in terms of skills and experience. There are few places in Cape Town where you will be exposed to and expected to work on as many different technologies, from front-end to back-end, as at WorkPool.
