Company Overview

The original trio of Grant Scheffel, Hardy Esterhuizen and Matthew Vreenegoor boast a combined experience of over 50 years in the IT industry!

With offices in Amsterdam, Cape Town and Johannesburg, Netgen Custom Software opened for business in October 2000. Their primary goal – to address specific needs in the computer industry relating to custom application software. There’s a high demand in the industry for affordable custom developed software. Netgen offers custom software and database development that is essentially web-based. But in recent years our mobile application base has seen extensive growth as well.

Netgen is lead by the three founding members, Grant Scheffel, Matthew Vreenegoor and Hardy Esterhuizen who have a combined experience of nearly six decades in the business. They are involved with every project and together they oversee all local and international operations.

More and more companies globally have realised that it’s more affordable in the long run to develop bespoke software that’s unique to their business needs. Netgen also offers integrations into various third-party services and APIs via JSON, Rest and Soap. This is highly beneficial since it allows seamless integration and information sharing into other systems while lowering the cost of ownership and development.

Netgen has moved into the web and .net environment, accumulating young and extremely talented IT professionals along the way. This growth has resulted in a custom software development company with the best team of mobile and technical developers, project managers application specialists and support techs. Our services include custom software development, website development and design and mobile application development. We are proud to be a complete solution business.
