Just want to say thanks for all your help. Great system you guys got in place. Love the smooth integration between Sage Netcash and Sage Pastel Payroll & HR. We have about 250 employees and we always had a problem with checking if the bank accounts are valid or not, with Netcash the problem is sorted. This month, our pay queries have been reduced by half. Keep up the good work.

Running a business in Mozambique is difficult, but South African companies like Sage Pastel Payroll & HR’s customer care makes life easier for us.

Feedback from the 702 Small Business Awards Sponsored by Sage Pastel (Accounting & Payroll)

It is incredible to think it is coming up to a year since Hillstream was nominated as a finalist in the first 702 Small Business Awards. Reflecting back and realising you must be in the planning stages of the 2009 competition, I thought I must drop you a line to give you feedback on the impact this award has had on Hillstream.
This time last year, we were literally launching Hillstream Beverages. Then in August, after the live five-minute interview with John, our phones did not stop ringing. Firstly it was the congratulations and support from people who knew Hillstream. In-between all the hype, serious business enquiries flowed in; it was amazing.

Now, eight months down the line, when doing new business pitches, the first comment is, Wasn’t Hillstream a finalist in the 702 Small Business Competition? The power of talk radio is overwhelming.

The exposure has been fantastic and we can comfortably say we have had a substantial increase in our turnover due to the publicity Hillstream received from the competition. Needless to say, the growth has been great.

Another huge plus was being able to purchase the Sage Pastel Package at a discounted rate. We have nearly mastered the skills, and this package is saving us so much time, from stock control to invoicing.

Over and above all this, Hillstream was fortunate to collaborate with another 702 Small Business Finalist Hlangane Recyclers. Hillstream and Hlangane Recyclers are like fish in water as we secure new contracts to supply water, we are able to offer a recycling benefit, and pass the leads directly to Hlangane; likewise, they pass leads to us, where they are able to.

Surely this is the true spirit of entrepreneurship being able to help other small businesses and offer a value-added service to larger companies.

In closing, we are grateful for the experience, the new business, the growth, and new friends we have gained through this exposure.

None of this could have happened without the nominations of people who believed in Hillstream.

Thank you for allowing small business to shine. I trust you will pass this letter along to all involved, as well as the sponsors, as this award truly increased the flow of Hillstream.

Kind regards
