These user-related calendars can be accessed from Smart-Phones, Computers, Tablets etc. because the server is compatible with Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCalendar and many more.

New VOIS module: VOIS | CSD

Complying with National Treasury's Central Supplier Database regulations
The Central Supplier Database maintains a database of organisations, institutions and individuals who can provide goods and services to government. The CSD will serve as the single source of key supplier information for organs of state from 01 April 2016 providing consolidated, accurate, up-to-date, complete and verified supplier information to procuring organs of state.

VOIS | CSD is a module of VOIS that automates the manual supplier verification process that is required by National Treasury. Automation of CSD processes reduce manual effort & operating cost and improves the procurement process, automatic seamless updating of the financial system of the Municipality / Department with the relevant supplier information as per CSD.

Value Proposition

  • Replace manual with automated handling (Example – During the procurement phase each supplier needs to be verified form the CSD several times, the manual process is time consuming and proof needs to be recorder, with VOIS | CSD this process is automated and will save time, resources and always be compliant. Checking the supplier throughout the process to comply with National Treasury)
  • Timestamps available on all verification requests
  • Automated supplier rotation based on usage, category, contract
  • Little or no effort needed from the users: With this, the responsible employees can devote themselves even more to the substantive examination, which leads to an overall improvement in the quality of procurement and cooperation with companies.

naviga/HSH Global Software started a project to improve business data in Zambia

During a small reception at the German Embassy by the German Ambassador Mr. Achim Burkart in the Zambian capital Lusaka a cooperation agreement between the Zambian government and naviga was signed on 26.02.2019.

The content of the project, which is financially supported by the “Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)”, is to improve business data at the national Patent And Company Registration Agency (PACRA) and to modernize processes.

At present, the business data, the associated documents and detailed information are stored in various databases, which either have no or only a rudimentary connection to each other. This makes the work very difficult both internally at PACRA and when passing on data to other public bodies and slows down the processes. It is the task of naviga/HSH, together with PACRA, to merge the databases in a meaningful way and to enable interfaces to other systems, which can then retrieve or view this data, depending on responsibility and need.

A few details about Zambia (the name is derived from the river Zambezi):

  • Landlocked state in Southern Africa
  • President: Edgar Lungu
  • Capital: Lusaka
  • Form of state and government: Republic/Presidential democracy
  • Population: around 17 million
  • 46% of the Zambian population is under 15 years old
  • Gross domestic product: USD 22.41 billion (for comparison Germany: USD 3.685 trillion)

HSH Global Software (Pty) Ltd. as a sister company of naviga we will support the project from Cape Town.
Our thanks go in particular to Ambassador Achim Burkart and all those involved in the discussions and negotiations, as well as to the GIZ and the AHK.


Positive identification to eliminate duplicate identities

Clear identification and allocation of personal data is a problem that is becoming more and more important. Especially in a more and more digital world, where the protection of one‘s own identity is more important than ever. We consider it indispensable that the control of the personal data lies in the hands of each individual and a transparently working public hand.

With VOIS | BIOMETRIC we offer a module within VOIS that the currently highest demands on encryption, security and access transparency are met.

Integration underpins Citizen Centricity and ultimately provides Citizens with the services they need better, cheaper and faster.

In addition to classic fingerprints, the system offers the possibility of identification by means of IRIS and/or Face ID. All possibilities of biometric recording and identification can be used independently or combined as desired.

What distinguishes VOIS | BIOMETRIC:

  • Highest encryption standard currently available
  • Separate data storage of biometric data and personal data
  • Modular design for use by other VOIS specialized programs
  • Defined interfaces for connecting external specialized programs – Integration into external systems via API’s
  • Strict logging of queries and accesses
  • Database queries close to real time
  • Avoid duplication to ensure efficient identity management
  • Identity biometrics getting attached/updated/removed over the whole life cycle
  • Identity management with a maximum of data protection and security in mind


VOIS | BIOMETRIC is a module of VOIS | PLATFORM, VOIS | PLATFORM will be utilized for all back-office administrative tasks, statistics and reporting. Many other specialized programs are already available in VOIS. Give us the opportunity to show you the advantages of VOIS | BIOMETRIC and integration possibilities.


Transparent, paperless and fast housing application system

Social housing construction is an acute topic worldwide. More and more people can hardly afford affordable housing at exploding prices. As in many other cases, this situation first affects people with little or no income. Especially in emerging and developing countries this situation is particularly dramatic, often even life-threatening.

In South Africa, the government tries to control social housing through the Department of Human Settlements and to improve the general housing situation of the lower income groups. Contrary to popular opinion, a house built with public funds is not free of charge. It can be rented or acquired. This task is delegated to the respective Municipality through the provincial administrations and is administered and processed de-centrally.

In order to process the applications better and more effectively, to ensure a secure, fast and binding communication between administration and applicant, as well as to ensure transparent and legally secure processing, we have developed VOIS | HOUSING as a specialized module for VOIS.

What distinguishes VOIS | HOUSING:

  • Modern web-based user interface with legally compliant validation, both during application and processing
  • Electronic application with submission of the corresponding documents with an intelligent assistant (Web based mobile App)
  • No manual modification of submitted applications without logging (complete transparency)
  • Processing notifications, status notifications (mail, SMS, etc.) and communication are possible to be completely electronic
  • Extensive evaluation possibilities such as waiting lists, statistics, diagrams, etc
  • Support of the clerks in the awarding of contracts according to legal requirements
  • Integrated electronic calendar for appointment scheduling to minimize waiting times
  • Integration with GIS for visual utilization overview
  • Waiting list generation
  • Applicant selection for housing projects
  • For use with Low Cost and GAP housing
  • Integration into required systems (API’s)
  • Modular design for use by other VOIS specialized programs


VOIS | HOUSING is a module of VOIS | BASE. VOIS | BASE will be utilized for all back-office administrative tasks, statistics and reporting. Many other specialized modules are already available in VOIS! Give us the opportunity to show you the advantages of VOIS | HOUSING and request presentation.
