Quantum Leap Consulting (QLC) a Level 1-rated BEE software-technology Company based in Cape Town, South Africa, has recently acquired Third Quarter Technologies.

Third Quarter Technologies is a black empowered IT company that specialises in application development and support.

According to QLC Director Shafiq Daniels, this move will strengthen and consolidate its footprint, as well as bringing vastly superior, cost-effective services closer to its wide range of clients.

QLC Holdings (Pty) Ltd, trading as Quantum Leap Consulting, was formed in 2001 as a Western Cape-based software house, and maintained an equity in a company called Time Quantum Consulting.

In July 2004, Time Quantum Consulting sold its operations to the Paracon Holdings Group.  After successfully integrating the Paracon and TQC operations, the directors left Paracon. After honouring their restraint of trade period, the directors – who have nearly 100 years of experience between them – decided to re-open QLC.

Third Quarter – honoured in the Technology Top 100 awards – brings along with it a wealth of experience in the government and corporate sectors, Business Intelligence and in the Bespoke Development and Application Support arenas.

According to Daniels, Quantum Leap Consulting can be described as a medium-sized, owner-managed ICT organisation that prides itself on its ability to provide top quality, yet highly affordable solutions for a host of clients ranging from small to medium businesses to corporate clients.
