Ensign Services (Pty) Ltd

One Task at a Time, getting it done

About Us

Ensign Services evolved from Debra’s original company established in 2005 and incorporated the business management services that were successful in that company with Debra’s passion for family history and genealogical data preservation and research. Ensign Services began trading in September 2016.

Our focus is on providing solutions of varying natures to customers ranging from individuals to organizations.  

Whether the solution required is an individual, manpower, software, process or hardware nature, we are able to take our customers needs and find a customizable and cost-effective solution.   

We have successfully implemented many Pastel Payroll and Accounting projects.  Some of these have involved the initial setup of the company, and where applicable thereafter the migration of data.

We are supporters of online service offerings to make both the client and the service providers access to data more effective. We support SageOne and Sage Payroll online offerings as well as Xero and Quickbooks online.
