ABOUT US

4S FOR U

Smolders Software Solutions & Service

4S is a software reseller and service provider for southern Africa. We focus on data security and cloud software solutions. 4S was founded in 2021 shortly after a period in which many companies encouraged their staff to work remotely. Data security and protecting customers’ data became an increased focus for many businesses.

We work closely together with Visma | PinkWeb, one of the leading software developers in The Netherlands. They are an official partner of Visma from Norway, Europe’s largest cloud software developer.

The first product for Visma | PinkWeb to launch in South Africa is Visma eShare. This is a secure Document Sharing Solution (DSS) which helps companies to increase their data security by no longer having to send important documents as attachments to external parties (clients, suppliers, investors, etc) via email.

About Stijn Smolders

Being in digital marketing and having worked with ad technology for the past 17 years, the change to business cloud software was a logical transition for Stijn, founder and managing director of 4S.
 
‘I’ve seen a huge change in businesses setting up remote working offices and the need for secure document sharing solutions is growing quickly.’
 
Through an exclusive partnership with Visma | PinkWeb South Africa has now access to leading European business cloud software solutions and local service. This will eliminate the risk (and habit) to share documents externally with clients and suppliers via email attachments.
 
‘What we saw happening is employees giving clients and sometimes suppliers, access to their internal document management (DMS) solutions like Google Drive, Sharepoint and Microsoft Teams. Platforms that are made for internal use only and we heard some terrible examples of how important business information was shared with the wrong people. But also the stories of email hacking, phishing through links and passwords being interjected were surfacing more and more. The need for secure platforms with the convenience of these above mentioned solutions was growing quickly.
Now imagine this situation for lawyers, attorneys, medical professionals (like doctors practices), real estate agents, universities and financial service providers? All are businesses that handle sensitive and private information of their customers. The launch of the POPI Act in South Africa has accelerated the awareness around this topic as well’.
 

Stijn is originally from The Netherlands and has been living in South Africa since 2008. Between 2011 and 2013 he went back to Amsterdam to join a leading ad technology reseller in The Netherlands. He has been back in Cape Town with his family since 2014 where he headed up Sprout Performance Partners, a digital media buying and consultancy for the past 7 years.
 
When not working Stijn enjoys spending time with his two very sporty sons and riding his bicycles around the Peninsula. Both on tar and on the mountain.

Visma eShare because… you manage a lot of personal FICA data and privacy-sensitive information. Clients send you proof of identity, payslips, proof of residency, information about their home and so on. You want to handle this carefully.

Visma eShare because… by definition you work with privacy-sensitive information and personal FICA data. Clients send you their IDs, pay slips, bank statements and other tax and confidential information. Offer them a safe way to share this.

Visma eShare because… clients send you all kinds of different documents. Bank details, bank statements, FICA documentation and sensitive information about their personal situation. Do this safely, reliably and also linked to your back office systems.

Visma eShare because… you work with the most sensitive information during acquisition due diligences, fundraising and organisational restructuring. Share financial, strategic and even legal information securely, with only the people who really need to have access to it.

Visma eShare because… you request sensitive information to process new contracts and changes. Think of FICA documentation, financial information or payslips for the calculation of tax returns. It is important you demonstrate that you know how to handle this information responsibly.

Visma eShare because… you request privacy-sensitive and highly confidential information from clients in order to guide them. Do this safely and securely in your own safe online environment. Information is stored in secure folders and archives, so that you can optimally assist clients.

Visma eShare because… you are responsible for the financial reporting. This means that you share business-sensitive and confidential information with or request from third parties. To do this via email is no longer best practice.

Visma eShare because… you work with the most personal data within your organisation. The HR department has to deal with remuneration information, CVs, FICA documentation, employment offers, police clearance certificates, diplomas, etc. Sensitive information that you want to process carefully.

Visma eShare because… as a broker you are a trusted person for your clients. You help them with everything related to their old or new home and you often request information or want to share documents, reports or photos. You want to do this safely and in an organised way.

Visma eShare because… you share or request a lot of large files in development projects. For example with clients or suppliers. This is often intellectual property such as building plans, drawings or name and address details. You want to exchange this information securely and in a structured manner.

Visma eShare because… you continuously exchange information to carry out assignments. Think of logos, photos, plans, presentations et cetera. This intellectual property should not end up on the street any more than personal information. Share safely, quickly and via your personal online environment.

Visma eShare because… you work with information from and for people. Perhaps you are a dietitian and you communicate about eating behavior and weight, or you are a speech therapist or physiotherapist and you ask for recorded exercises or someone’s medical information. It’s all private information for specific individuals.

SECURITY SCAN

How much risk do you run on a data breach?

When we hear the word data breach, we quickly think of hackers. But nearly 70% of data breaches occur when information is sent to the wrong person. This happens especially often with e-mail and WhatsApp, channels that are not sure whether they are proven to be safe. Do our Security Scan and find out how much risk you run!
