Simply capture your BEE activities and interventions directly into the BEE123 Software (e.g. individuals sent on training courses, employee details and levels, ED and SED Beneficiaries and contributions etc.) and this information will automatically be consolidated, tabulated and fed directly into the Scorecard Calculator. Voila- BEE done!
Excel Templates uploads. If any relevant information is already being housed in another system (eg your accounting or payroll system) there is no need to recapture it. Just import this data via our excel templates and your BEE123 System will be fully populated- quick and easy.

- Reports can be generated in PDF or Excel formats, which allows for easy editing and use within one’s own reports.
User Access and Management System

User Management - allows you to control and specify what access the new Users will have. Access can be controlled by Element, with ‘View’ and/or ‘Edit’ functionality specifications.
