Simplex Time Recorders started off with humble beginnings in 1968, when a salesman working for Garlicks Office Equipment selling calculators and typewriters decided to start his own business selling time and attendance systems in the form of mechanical time recorders. Since its founding date, our company has only grown from strength to strength, leading the way in access control and time and attendance monitoring systems by always staying ahead of our competition when it comes to developing new and more efficient technologies in managing payroll data, staff movements, job costing, etc.
Back in the 1980’s, Simplex Time Recorders came to be the first known company in South Africa to sell electronic time recorders, and later also became the first company to write its own accompanying Software for time and attendance, and access control support. These facts on their own stand as a true testament to the innovative and entrepreneurial nature that our company has possessed since it was established almost five decades ago.
From the time Simplex Time Recorders was first established, we have assisted countless companies in monitoring and managing the movement and activities of their staff. In so doing, we have helped our customers to completely eliminate human error and time theft/fraud when it comes to access control and clocking working hours.
Today, our company is owned by John Lester, who joined us in 2001 and took over as managing director and owner in 2004. Under his leadership, we have come to be one of the most reliable suppliers of accurate time and attendance and access control system products. As of 1 January 2017, the role of Managing Director was taken over by Shawn Kok. Shawn’s career with Simplex started as a programmer in 2001. Since then, he has gained invaluable industry knowledge.
