By combining our decades of delivery experience expertise with our large pool of phenomenally talented, enthusiastic, fulfilled and driven technology professionals we work with business people to see their great ideas successfully delivered.

To improve our offerings to our clients, and to become more competitive in the market, the strategic decision was made to merge with Alacrity Technologies in 2017. The combined business now forms part of the Crossfin Technology Group, further establishing Saratoga as a leading solution provider in the financial technology sector.

With a combined workforce of over 120 consultants, our experts continue to provide professional technology and business solutions to our local and international clients, positioning Saratoga as a leader in solution delivery.

Along with Saratoga, the Crossfin Technology Group also owns stakes in several companies in the Fintech industry, including Innervation, WiGroup, Emerge Mobile (including iKhokha) and Blue Garnet.

Crossfin aims to influence technology across the value chain, from point of processing to point of fulfillment, either directly or through partnerships. With over 10,000 clients and operating in 7 African countries, the Group has a reputable established footprint from which to continue to grow and diversify its products and services.


One of our core company values is people matter, and that extends beyond our staff and clients to include the greater community. One of the organisations we’ve supported is the Khayelitsha Christian Academy, an informal, community run care centre which looks after the pre-school needs of Mandela Park children in Khayelitsha, who are unable to afford state education.

Giving back to the community has become a part of our company culture and to further support our community initiatives we started a CSR committee. The committee consists of staff who are passionate about supporting the community around us and will continue to organise our corporate social responsibility initiatives.

Previous initiatives have seen us host a Street Store in Cape Town, providing hundreds of homeless people with clothes, and organising donation drives for animal shelters and a donation drive for NOAH – a Woodstock based NGO providing care to the elderly.
