We are constantly striving to improve our service to our customers.

The Beginning

In July 1995, equipped with a Desktop PC and 19 years of System Development and Support experience, RapidSoft's humble beginning commenced in a shared rented place in Lenasia, Johannesburg.

The Managing Director, Naushad Kazi, started off as a COBOL programmer in 1976. After Qualifying as Cobol Programmer, Commenced his working career at Consol Glass as a Junior Programmer. In the three years at Consol Glass he progressed to become an Analyst Programmer. During this period, learnt RPG II language and was responsible for Many Systems and was part of many projects.

From 1980 to 1984, he worked at Van Zyl & Pritchard (a computer Training College where he originally qualified from) as a tutor. In his spare time from his teaching duties, he took it upon himself to do Research and Development. He improved upon the System Design and Programming Methodologies that were being thought at van Zyl & Pritchard. He designed and developed several in-house Systems, such as the Student Management System and the Data Matrix System which was to fast track System Analysis and Design with many state-of-the-art innovative features..

At van Zyl & Pritchard, he setup a Software Division to provide Customized Software Solutions for various clients. Notable amongst these were the Tendering, Contracting, Production Planning and Stock Control system for WJ Engineering and several systems for Lebowa Government.

From December 1984 to June 1995, I worked as a Contract Programmer. During this period, I got to work for many companies on a variety of systems and very challenging environments. Notable amongst these was the six years that I spent at FedSure, where I was part of many development teams and involved in many different projects and managed some very innovative developments. G.D. Searle was another company where I was contracted for three years involved with many developments, running the one man IT shop.

Initially at RapidSoft, they started off developing systems for corporate clients on Windows Platform using Clarion as the Rapid Application Genrator development tool. Subsequently, sensing huge potential in the SMME market, they expanded their range of products by developing Point-of-sale, Production Planning & Manufacturing and Fleet Management type of systems for the SMME sector. Eventually, creating many Industry Specific Point-of-Sale solutions for the Retail and Wholesale market. Along the way, created a niche market for its various Point-of-Sale products.

Darul Ifta Software

Alhamdulillah, we have developed a software for Jamiatul Ulama South Africa, that manages all the Questions posed to the Ifta department and directs it to the appropriate Mufti for Answer. From there it is passed on to two different Muftis for confirmation before it is released to the sender via email or fax. The system is in operation for many years now.

Salaah Tracker

This software allows one to Log all the obligatory Salaah that are being performed. One could produce a chart depicting the Outstanding as well as fulfilled Salaahs. One could produce a chart of any past year and perform Qadhaa-e-Umri and log it on the system. At any given time one could produce a list of lifetime Salaahs that are outstanding. It can be taken into account at the time of drawing up a will.
