What is Ushintsho?

Ushintsho means “open to change”. The Ushintsho Programme is one of SAICA’s Digital Transformation initiatives that aims to provide a comprehensive and single view of the SAICA value chain, improve member experience, and drive business process efficiency through the:

  • Implementation of a modern Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system;
  • Replacement of legacy applications with the new CRM system;
  • Integration of current applications (that will not be replaced) with the new CRM system; and
  • Migration of data from legacy systems to the new CRM system.

How will Ushintsho be implemented?

The Programme will be implemented in 6 stages. Stage 0 delivered the blueprint for the full Programme. This enabled the project team to prioritise those features that are critical in mitigating the risks associated with the current system.

Stage 1 launched on 11 October 2019, which involed the development and implementation of functionality to support Member Profile Management/ Member Portal and Query Management processes.

Upcoming stages will be communicated in due course.
