About YIPS AFRICA
Passion, commitment, and a lot of hard work.
YIPS Africa is a South African founded company formed in 2012 by Richard Ogbechie and Judy Mangena. YIPS Africa is 100% black woman-owned with a Level 1 BBBEE status and a procurement recognition of 135%.
Our company’s core business is software optimization, graphic design, website development, cyber security, web hosting, software development, business intelligence, marketing, and SEO services to small and large corporations.
YIPS Africa currently has offices in South Africa and Nigeria and offers its services to some of the following industries: engineering, financial services, automotive, and manufacturing.
With 1 million jobs slated to open up in Africa in the ICT sector in the next decade and under 200,000 domestic graduates to fill them, finding tech talent is more critical than ever.
YIPS Africa aims to bridge that gap and maximize the impact of the world’s largest untapped tech talent pool: Africa. Founded in 2012, YIPS has been growing a network of technology leaders in Africa, bringing the World and African tech sectors closer together and helping companies overcome their talent shortages to build better products and solutions, faster.
“To meet a critical demand for Tech skills, tech companies continue to shift toward distributed teams and remote work,”
We help close that talent shortage with a highly skilled, well-trained workforce, so
companies can leverage to drive competitive advantage.
To provide companies with world-class talents, YIPS invests in building talents, helping them achieve mastery in end-to-end deployment and support on the Microsoft ecosystem.
YIPS relies on Microsoft Learn courses, our customised in-house lab modules and Microsoft Certifications to grow their skills, using a custom learning path aligned to YIP’s core competencies: Collaboration, Results, Trust, Work Ethics and Diligence.
Part of YIPs job is making sure our Talents grow into technology leaders in the Microsoft ecosystem.
The breadth of material available on the Microsoft Learn Platform and our in-house lab modules gives our Talents the opportunity to continually refresh their skills and get certified. As a result, they’re very passionate about using them.
With YIPS adding new talents each month, our numbers continue to grow rapidly.
“With Microsoft Learn and our in-house lab modules, we have a platform with a wealth of educational content that helps our talents quickly level up their skills and execute on their daily tasks.
Just as importantly, we have the tools and analytics to monitor progress and feedback, so we can ensure we’re growing technology leaders versed in high-demand skill sets in the technology space.
