Ottawa, ON, November 2, 2023 — Harris, a global vertical market software provider, has acquired its first South African organization with the acquisition of Interfile Filing Ltd. (doing business as Interfile).
Interfile offers a suite of solutions for government, municipalities, and private sector organizations. Every single citizen in South Africa uses one or more of Interfile’s creations, from paying tax to obtaining an ID card/passport, filing for unemployment or interacting with and paying for local municipal services. Founder, Sheldon Quarmby, comments: “Interfile created SARSeFiling in 2003 and changed the way that public service interacts with its citizens. Today the company positively impacts the economy whilst improving service delivery and the lives of the people. Interfile set out to make a difference – I’m proud to say that we achieved this. The company is now in good hands and I look forward to watching Harris and the Interfile team continue to “Make a Difference”.
Harris Portfolio Leader Dennis Asbury said, “Interfile joins Harris offering citizen access portals to government agencies allowing digital enablement of services from passport applications to parking ticket payments. Interfile’s vision is to ‘make a difference’ to the lives of South African people through it’s solutions, and has done so successfully for twenty years. We are very excited to add these solutions, employees and customers to the Harris family.”
