Focus

CDS Solutions is a provider of software solutions, focusing mainly on small to medium businesses. Because of the small size and low overheads of my business, I am able to provide efficient yet cost-effective solutions. My  skill-set is focused on WordPress and Joomla websites, as well as bespoke Microsoft applications.

Although I am based in Cape Town, the nature of website development allows me to have clients almost anywhere. In fact most of my clients are outside of Cape Town.
