What Our Customers Have To Say

Amazing. The DotActiv team know exactly what to do. It didn’t take long at all for you to align to our strategy and visually execute it onto our planograms. You have exceptional energy and your attention to detail is refreshing.

Michael de Beer

National Category Buyer for Hot Beverages at Pick n Pay

In the time that DotActiv’s Meagan Paynee has worked on the Ultra Liquors account, I have been consistently impressed by both her attitude towards her work and her performance. She is very well organised and takes initiative that goes beyond the expected parameters of her job. I am very grateful for her contributions.

Rieke de Jager

National Wine Buyer at Ultra Liquors

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sanmari Roberts. She has such an amazing ‘can do’ attitude and nothing is too much, even with all my last-minute changes! I appreciate having this support as we have a lot of work ahead on Candy over the next few months.

Kerry Murch

Senior Category Development Manager at Premier FMCG

Having worked in FMCG for over five years, I never worked directly on creating planograms. Palesa Mnguni, Meagan Paynee and Marizelle Oosthuizen from DotActiv made the process easy to understand. They have guided me and have helped the business to have better conversations with our customers. I’d recommend DotActiv services to anyone!

Louise Grove

Thank you DotActiv for your excellent support and patience! The training provided has been invaluable, and without the follow up services of Anneri Greyling, we would still be inputting incompatible data and not utilise and benefit from the program to our best ability, so a special thank you is in order.
