"I have known Jaco Louw of Impact IT for over a 15 year period. Jaco initially worked for me in IT support at Discovery and, due to his IT acumen, soon took over the running of the IT division for the Discovery Coastal regions. Jaco and I started our own ventures and if I have an IT requirement, Impact IT is who I recommend. Jaco goes out of his way to deliver the best service at the best price, always with a humble attitude which makes delivering turnkey projects so much more stress-free.
