About Us


With more than 30 years of experience in procurement, planning, finance, stores and logistics, BOM’S and configuration management, he understands the relevance of identification in a structure when a system is implemented. When Naschem implemented their first comprehensive ERP system (from paper to computer), Chris was the system administrator.
He has designed the outlay and methodology with regards to the working of the MRP and the Configuration management of the Naschem ERP system. Therefore the implementation of our RedAnt System would be second nature for Chris, he shall ensure that the implementation meet the expected outcome, within the planned timeframe.


He has more than 30 years of experience in the IT environment, an accomplished system designer and programmer of note. He is one of a few individuals that are capable of design, write the program and implement an ERP system.
He has done statistical programming of highly complicated analysis, flight trajectories of munitions and many more. He is capable of overlaying neural networks on the RedAnt system to do preventative maintenance in future.



Raventech is a boutique consulting engineering firm with experience in various engineering disciplines. Raventech offers Integrated Energy and Energy Efficiency Solutions to ensure that clients can continue operating during energy constraint times and also operate more efficiently.
