With a strong IT and electronic background, we are also authorised reseller for all plasmas and LCD's from the top manufacture such as NEC, Pioneer, Panasonic, Sony, LG and Sharp. We provide all equipment needed for digital signage network, but we also utilize any existing hardware you may have, such as plasma displays. We promise to present only the proper and necessary hardware for your specific property. We will fulfill this pledge through strict adherence to your digital signage objectives. Here are some of the factors we put into consideration:

Business Objectives:
What are your goals that you would like to achieve with digital signage network? Do you primarily want to have flexibility and control of your signage enhance the customer experience or employee communications, and/or take advantage of a new revenue source.

Cost effectiveness:
Will the hardware infrastructure be cost effective in relation to you business objectives? Does this investment make sense? If you are interested in the advertising program, What kind of return do you expect?

Seagate Consult is a South African based, IT solutions company serving as a conduit between today's business requirements and the ever-changing, fast paced world of technology. Seagate Consult, who saw a clear lack of quality service in the IT industry, founded Seagate Consult Group to provide top notch IT solutions and consulting services to small and medium businesses (SMB) and large corporations.

We came together with the idea, that technology should be applied to business, not business to technology. Businesses shouldn't have to sacrifice precious time and resources to stay informed about current technology in order to take advantage of it.

Our desire is to have happy, satisfied customers and we strongly believe:
"Leave your technology to us while you keep doing what you do best - running your business!" We believe that you should focus on what you do best - your core business. So, we thought "Why not build our business around you"? Everything we do starts with learning about you, your business and your work processes. We want to know where you already excel, and what challenges you face. Does your industry have special regulatory or compliance issues? How do you manage growth? Where do you expect to be in the next year, or the next three years? Only integral parts of your success.

Seagate Consult is a company of passionate Information Technology professionals. For us, this is not just a job - it's our calling. We take IT as seriously as you take your own business. Our staff consists of engineers certified in current and legacy Microsoft technologies (MCSE, MCSA) with expertise extending to other industry-leading companies. We realize that our staff is our best asset. We want each of them to have the skills to provide high-quality IT services and IT support and the personality to make our clients feel at ease and comfortable. If a potential staff member passes an initial technical evaluation, we then assess the individual to see if they possess the other "non-technical" traits needed to serve our clients. We're more interested in a staff that has a depth of experience combined with a desire to go out of their way to meet our clients' needs.

Because word-of-mouth is the best advertisement, we go the extra mile to ensure you'll be our customer again. Finally, whether our client is a small company or a Fortune 500, we are equipped to be a reliable, single source for all of their technical needs.
