Owen’s Auto   
 
 Introduction
 
Owes's Auto was established in 2003 by Owen Peters after working in the automotive industry for many years. The company offers specialised service in the form of autotronic diagnostics and electrical motor repairs, along with traditional car maintenance services.
 
 Challenge
 
The company had the following challenge:

No system in place to help cut down a lot of time doing paperwork including accounts.
 
 Solution by Seda
 
Seda Cape Town identified that a comprehensive accounting package would be the best solution to this problem. A service provider, Business Survival Solutions was therefore contracted to implement a Pastel Accounting package. They also provided specialised training on the accounting package especially adapted for this particular business.
 
 Results
 
The new and organised financial management system, combined with a knowledgeable admin clerk has allowed Owen better access to the company's financial information. As an owner, Owen can on a daily basis know what the financial position of his company is and the daily debtor’s analysis has had a positive impact on the cash flow of the company.
 
 From the desk of Owen Peters
 
The professionalism I received from both Seda and Business Survival Solutions was excellent with a highly-positive outcome. I want to thank everyone who made my business such a success!
