Our Approach

We recognise that there are many competent IT suppliers one can work with, but that, ultimately, it's people and culture that make the difference. So, when all key criteria are met, we know that people would like to work with a supplier with which they can build a long-term relationship based on trust, collaboration and understanding.

Our company ethos is very much in harmony with the aims and culture of our clients. We are open and honest in our dealings and we are sensitive to the needs of all organisations to spend wisely. If you would like to discuss your requirements, please contact Netzach at infor@Netzachsystems.com or call us on +260 964 699095.

At Netzach, we realise that ongoing simplicity of operation and cost of ownership are also significant factors and, when designing an application or web site, we draw upon our considerable experience of designing intuitive and aesthetically pleasing applications that require low maintenance and are constructed in such a way as to encourage user self-sufficiency.

The cost of providing facilities to a broad and diverse community of users can be significant and our approach is always to minimise the need for user support, reduce the ramp-up time for new staff and minimise the need for initial and remedial training.



When it comes to managing web projects, we’ve picked up a thing or two over the years. So, what should you expect when you hire us?

What follows is a brief summary of the life of a project here at Netzach.


It all starts when we get that first call or email from you. We are very friendly and approachable, and no question or idea is dismissed out-of-hand. If you have a good idea of what you want to achieve and a budget in mind, feel free to get in touch. We think we’re pretty flexible as we’ve worked with small businesses all the way up to blue-chip corporate businesses.
Initial proposal & guideline prices

We’ve been doing this for a while so chances are we’ve previously built a website similar to what you’re after and we’ll be able to use that as a guide in order to put together an initial proposal and rough estimate. It’s not just about prices though: we like to meet up at this stage so you can get a feel for our company. It’s important that we’re the right fit for each other. We think we’re pretty flexible as we’ve worked with one-man-bands and small businesses, all the way up to blue-chip corporate businesses.
Project specification

At this stage we’ll identify the results you are looking to achieve and discuss how your website / web application will deliver them. Where possible we’ll collect any content and collateral for your website so that we can draw up a site structure. It depends on the project but often, rather than spend a lot of time and effort writing long-winded specification documents, we tend to produce a ‘wireframe’ prototype to identify the key features and how they will fit together.
Design phase

We will produce provisional designs to convey the general look and feel for your website. Often there are a number of rounds of feedback and tweaks before the design is signed-off. Typically we do not design every page of the website as this would prove time consuming and costly. We will use the provisional designs as a style guide that can be applied consistently throughout the site, and will adapt the page layouts to fit their content.
Development phase

We like to work with open source server-side technologies including Ruby on Rails, PHP, MySQL and others. We build web applications using Ruby on Rails because it allows us to deliver projects on shorter deadlines without compromising the quality of our work.
Testing, feedback & amends

Once we have an initial implementation to show you we will make it available for you to test online before it is visible to the public. We’ll ask for your feedback at regular intervals so that we can make any changes and amends before too much time and effort has been invested.
Go live!

The website (or application) is finished and ready to be launched — All that remains is to hit the button!
Review, analyse & improve

All websites have a ‘bedding in’ period shortly after they are launched and during this time we will monitor your website, fix any bugs and make the inevitable tweaks and changes you require once you start using it in earnest. This is also the time to further review your site’s performance on search engine results pages.
