Robert Bertora, founder of KAMOHA Tech, interviews Renier Botha as an introduction to GSA’s (Global Student Accommodation) chair and executive team.
Kamoha Tech – The KAMOHA story began in 2015 servicing Global Student Accommodation (GSA), which has a wide global footprint including the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany, UAE, Australia, Japan and China. It has grown over 10-fold in 3 years, doing so both through organic growth, (Property development & Construction of its own purpose-built student residences) and through several company acquisitions.
The GSA need was for someone to take control of their IT & Systems prior to the explosive growth they were about to undertake and that is when KAMOHA TECH founder Robert Bertora joined GSA. The company had a need for its teams to be highly mobile and as such he implemented a ‘Pure Cloud Strategy’. Rapidly migrated GSA away from, and off of all their traditional existing IT Data & System suppliers, and replaced these with a Cloud Infrastructure, Managed Cloud Data Services and our Remote Desktop Support Services help-desk facility. The subsequent customer satisfaction ratings doubled and our scalable model allowed for the fast and efficient taking on of new property assets, and new company / brand acquisitions in various countries.
Having a global client that has had such explosive growth, has meant that we have faced some complex and unique challenges, which have been overcome with passion, dedication and putting our customers first.
Renier and Robert know each other since 2014 where they worked together in the Global IT team of Regus, a FTSE 250 giant providing workspaces to business ventures ranging from start-up entrepreneurs to global businesses. Start-up conversations between Renier and Robert started mid 2017 and Renier joined the venture as director in May 2018, when Kamoha Tech LTD was officially registered.
