Operating across multiple business units, GWK provides an array of services to farmers such as consulting on planting and mechanization, organizing grain and livestock auctions, and procuring the plants and seeds themselves that provide the country sustenance. A complex organization with diverse divisions and functions, GWK?and by proxy, its farmers, customers and other partners?is heavily reliant on its IT infrastructure. A large part of that is powered by Mercury Flash, a top database management tool for Rocket UniData and UniVerse, developed by Rocket partner Paradigm Systems.


As a Paradigm customer, GWK has depended on the UniVerse and UniData platforms for decades, extending their core applications multiple times over the years to meet the ever-evolving demands of business. Paradigm president and CEO Jay LaBonte considers the platforms? MultiValue database models?which are not only more efficient than other database models, but also accelerate application development time??a key differentiator.? ?Flexible, reliable, and cost-effective, Paradigm?s solutions enable us to manage our diverse operations effectively across the entire country in both rural and urban areas,? says Wim van Rooyen, Managing Director of GWK Farm foods. ?Paradigm provides us with robust, economical solutions that can efficiently scale with the growth of our business. We have been impressed time and time again with the quality and the professionalism of their work.?
