WHY USE WISE OWL?

Just a phone call away

Do you realise that your company’s best strategy may be to bring in additional manpower with temporary staff.

Temps can be brought in:

  • To do specialized work your existing staff may not be qualified (or willing) to do;
  • To enable you to meet project deadlines and handle extraordinary business demands, thereby increasing your bottom line.

Some other reasons companies hire temps:

  • Employee absences: illness, vacation, maternity or disability leave, sudden departure.
  • Unexpected or temporary demands: special projects, seasonal or peak periods, employee shortages.

Your company may not possess the necessary experience and expertise. Luckily, nowadays, companies hire computer specialists, creative people and even senior executives on a temporary basis to fill short-term needs.

These are just a few reasons why you should consider using
WISE OWL SOLUTIONS to assist when you need temporary or contract staff.

  • Microsoft PowerPoint

I can provide a complete set of computer training manuals for beginners to advanced skills and more.

WEB DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE

Web presence is critical for all industries. In an age where the Internet is such a useful communication tool, lack of a website or online presence can lead potential clients to find a similar business elsewhere. A website is also important because it helps you establish credibility as a business. Most people just assume that you have a website since the vast majority of businesses do.

If you already have a website I can maintain it for you saving you the tedious work of updating it regularly. And updating a website is of cardinal importance because nothing makes such a bad impression as an outdated website!

If you don’t have a website, no problem. I can register a domain, arrange hosting and have your website up and running in no time.

Best of all! I can do this at the most competitive rates in Langebaan!

MORE ABOUT ME

My name is Marianne. Thank you for visiting my website. I would like to tell you more about myself, my qualifications and work experience. This will give you a good idea why you should seriously consider making use of my outsourcing, virtual and temp services.

After finishing school I studied at the Central University of Technology (formerly the Free State Technikon) where I obtained my qualification in Computer Data Processing. My subjects included –
Financial Accounting I
Industrial Accounting I, II
Work Study I
Information Systems I, II
Commercial Programming I, II, III
Pascal
Systems Software

After completing my studies I worked as librarian in the Bloemfontein City Library. Working in the library gave me the necessary skills to deal with customers and the public. I also learnt how to work with stock and do stock taking.

Through the National Computer College I obtained a diploma which included specialised skills in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access and Microsoft PowerPoint. I then worked as trainer  for them with computer training for children and adults as main function. My time at National Computer College was rewarding as I was working in a field I enjoyed, and I could also apply a part of the knowledge related to my qualifications. I was the preferred trainer at the particular branch and gained valuable experience in presenting computer training classes.

In 1998 I joined Futurekids as a computer skills teacher for school learners.  After working for Futurekids for a while, I was promoted to head teacher and office manager. I managed the teaching staff, organised training sessions for the teachers and evaluated each teacher on a regular basis. My duties also included running the main office as the owner was away most of the time.

My experience up to this point prepared me to start my own business. Along with my business partner at the time, Let’s Do It! was established with the main objective to develop courseware for specific qualifications, starting with ICDL courseware.

My main duty was developing new courseware. This includes writing the material, editing the material, finalising the layout of the books and overseeing the process of producing the final product. I liaised with printing companies as well as the bodies who needed to evaluate our material. I am proficient at developing and editing courseware.

As part of my duties I managed the day to day financial aspects of the business, e.g. paying salaries, paying suppliers and working with our auditor. As manager of our Cape Town branch I also dealt with all personnel issues that occurred.
A few years ago, Let’s Do It! was sold to a third party and since then have started a new business, Wise Owl Solutions

I am currently the chief courseware compiler for Courseware4U and co-owner of De Novo Boeke, a small publish self company form whom I am mainly involved in proof reading manuscripts, as well as design and page layout of manuscripts.

From all this it will be clear that I have extensive skills and am ideally experienced to provide the temp, virtual and outsourced services your company may require.
