Redvine and Dandemutande partner to drive SD-WAN growth in Zimbabwe

10 MARCH 2023 – Johannesburg and HarareRedvine Networks, the fully managed secure SD-WAN and networking service provider and distributor, and leading Zimbabwean ICT solutions company, Dandemutande Investments (Pvt) Ltd, have recently partnered to implement a VMWare SD-WAN solution for one of Zimbabwe’s largest funeral insurance companies.  It is the first VMWare SD-WAN implementation for a local Zimbabwean organization.

Dandemutande, a Redvine partner since 2021, proposed the VMWare SD-WAN solution to the client, which also has branches in SADC and Europe. This culminated in a closed sale and the completion of phase one of the 60 sites where the solution that delivers SD-WAN from the cloud will be implemented.

“Interest in SD-WAN technology which helps organizations optimize their networks is growing in the Zimbabwean market. The potential is huge, and we are excited to work with a reputable partner like Dandemutande as we continue to extend our pan-African reach,” says Binesh George, CEO and co-founder of Redvine Networks.

The partnership between the two organizations is flexible which significantly enhances the experience for Dandemutande’s customers.

“Together, we have not only strong technical capabilities and skills but also relationships with vendors like VMWare.  It means we can provide our customers with a comprehensive approach to managing and monitoring their network to increase productivity and provide them with growth opportunities to increase their profits,” says Never Ncube, Chief Executive Officer at Dandemutande.

The addition of SDWAN to Dandemutande’s broad suite of ICT solutions has further enhanced its value proposition for multi-site organizations seeking simpler and cost-effective ways of managing connectivity across their networks and optimizing performance. To these organizations and more, Dandemutande also offers Connectivity, Cloud solutions, Cyber Security, IT Hardware and software, IoT Solutions, Asset Management, and Training which enhance their competitive edge in the markets they operate.
