Introducing Agileworks

Agileworks is a newly formed technology company that offers both professional services and a range of products. Although only in it’s first year, Agileworks is a continuation of previously highly successful IT companies that Hardy Jonck started, and has retained long-standing clients from some of the predecessor companies.

Differentiating themselves with their IP, business expertise and development methodologies. Their overarching new product development
(NPD) methodology is fundamentally different to traditional project management, bringing in business development as part of the project iterations. The outcomes are therefore technologies that address specific user and business needs. They are mindful of traditional processes where a business case is handed over to developers, and only reassessed once a ‘perfect’ (but wanting) technology platform has been developed. The directors of Agileworks are experience entrepreneurs and have a first-hand understanding of the challenges and needs of business owners.

On a project level the development approach is model driven agile project management. It gives the client much quicker visibility of the product, and more iterations of developing the user experience. It is also cost-efficient while reducing time to market.

Success Stories

 IRM provides professional services at the highest level and has helped in the recovery, or the saving, of hundreds of millions of Rands for our clients.

Lack of corporate governance and identification of multiple questionable transactions

We recently analysed the transactional data of a large formerly JSE listed service provider with over 30 000 employees and turnover in excess of R5 billion in various jurisdictions. Our findings startled the executives as they trusted that the controls in place were adequate to prevent highly questionable transactions across numerous functional areas of the business. We are now working with the client to build system controls to proactively identify questionable transactions to assist in prevention. Their ongoing Masterfile management was hopelessly inadequate, which gives rise to high potential fraudulent conduct.

Fraudulent transactions below corporate authority threshold

An international entity was defrauded by a senior employee over 10 years by fabricating invoices for fraudulent work purportedly done by an entity related to his wife and approving these amounts which were below the threshold level of his authority, hence avoiding detection for 10 years, which resulted in losses of over R20 million.

Identification of duplicate payments due to failure to reconcile to creditors statements

The client did not reconcile monthly supplier invoices to supplier statements erroneously duplicated payments by the client were undetected until we identified, such, resulting in a direct recovery from the suppliers at no cost to the client.
