Global reach, family warmth

IDU was founded in a garage in Cape Town in 1997. The culture of family is still at the heart of the business, but our reach is now multinational. We have distribution hubs in Johannesburg, Durban, London, Dubai, Auckland and North America.

idu-Concept, our flagship solution, is used by hundreds of companies in 30+ countries on 5 continents, and our oldest customers have been with us since the start.

Financial Budgeting, Forecasting & Reporting

idu-Concept can reduce your budget cycle from months to weeks by automating rote processes and empowering business managers to understand, control and account for their budgets more effectively. When the budget process is transparent throughout the organisation, accountability becomes real – and accountants become more valuable. We make accurate data and analysis easily available,  real-time, so your finance team is freed up to take on the role of trusted advisor to the business.

Sales Planning and Reporting

To date, sales budgets are still being prepared centrally, with little to no input from the end user. This can be time consuming and result in a lack of accuracy and efficiency. The idu-Concept Sales Planning Module is specially designed to streamline the sales planning and reporting process. Using a highly accessible web-based toolset, users are able to capture sales budgets at a customer and product level with real-time aggregation and management.

Fixed Asset Management

Our Fixed Asset Management Module gives users all the tools they need to take ownership of the assets and equipment under their control. Making transfers and conducting physical verifications with our web-based mobile friendly solution gives the business a real-time view of all its assets and their locations. idu-Concept interfaces directly with the fixed asset register to keep financial records up to date, and integrates with other modules to enhance performance management procedures.

Financial Modelling

idu-Concept’s Financial Modelling Module allows you to prepare for the future with “what-if” scenario planning: Define assumptions important for your business, link them to your accounts and departments and extrapolate up to five years into the future.
