Matrix embodies my convictions on how an Organisation should behave. It is an extension of my own values, and has a DNA that is ever-evolving, pushing the company to new areas of growth. While the focus is on the services we provide our clients, it is very important to understand the product and the process. We strive to be the best in the business, working hard, and earning our stripes on merit & performance.
My job is to draw a future vision for Matrix and to set a course for achieving its goals. I am fortunate to have tremendously hard working individuals, customers and vendors accompanying me on this satisfying journey.

  1. MATRIX Customer Portal

    The Matrix Customer Portal is the hub of all online activity at Matrix. It is the central core of the day-to-day operations, ranging from Merchandising, Quality and Sampling to Administration functions.  

  2. Vendor Status Navigator

    The 'Vendor Status Navigator' provides a visual interface for analysing the progress of day to day business. With built in KPIs for On-Time Performance and Deviation, it provides simples guages to measure the health of business activity, while providing in-depth data on how vendors/brands who have worked with us have performed historically.

  3. ProtoWare

    ProtoWare provides a Real-Time window into Sampling. It logs and provides a communication interface to buyers to discuss their on-going developments under Matrix and supplies real-time feedback from the sampling department. The ProtoWare dashboard is a One-Stop shop to guage the effectiveness of our Samling division. Sampling technicians enter data through hand-held devices and are therefore not limited to the traditional brick and mortar offices. This ensures a smooth and transparent streamlining of the Samling process.

  4. QUONDA

    Traditionally, Quality has been divided into two divisions, QUALITY ASSURANCE & QUALITY CONTROL. This has meant higher startup costs, longer reporting chains and information that is subject to individual perception.

    QUONDA has been developed to ensure a FLUID environment with regards to Quality. The following screens clients just a few of the quality reports available as part of the system which encompass the efficiency and the productivity of Quality Control and Assurance. This coupled with Real-Time Audit reports ensures a streamlined Quality Environment, QA & QC.
