Centric offers global reach, and we believe this will serve us and our customers as we grow here in South Africa and around the world.

Tommy Butcher, COO of Centric, announced a new partnership with DigitalFlyer, an online marketing platform based in South Africa. Described as a “business directory on steroids”, DigitalFlyer makes it easy for customers to find the services they’re looking for and for businesses to be found effortlessly.
DigitalFlyer calls itself the “Business Directory 3.0”. The platform allows customers to find and purchase products, services and event tickets. Users can also contact suppliers directly through the platform, make appointments and contact companies through social networks such as Twitter, WhatsApp and Telegram.
DigitalFlyer offers a web version and an app available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store. The company operates in South Africa and plans to expand into other markets around the world in the near future.
Dewald Rosema, CEO of DigitalFlyer, explained the platform’s value to small business owners.
“The typical plumber, for example, doesn’t have the time, technical skills, or budget to build, maintain, and host a custom website,” Rosema said. “We provide all of this plus a back-office for the business owner. We do all of this for just R1,199 which equates to around $75. Now businesses can choose to pay the subscription fee with Centric Swap,” he said.
The Rosema referenced back-office allows business owners to track views, customer requests/messages, appointments made and reviews. Businesses can also post new products for sale, FAQs, social media links, and more.
DigitalFlyer now accepts Centered Swap (CNS) company payments for their annual dues. CNS payments are also available for each of the 600+ growing vendors on the platform.
“We were thrilled to discover Centric for the first time, and even more thrilled to partner with the Centric Foundation,” said Dewald. “Centric offers global reach, and we believe this will serve us and our customers well as we expand here in South Africa and across the world.”
Centric COO Tommy Butcher said, “On behalf of the Centric community, we welcome DigitalFlyer, and all of their vendors and customers. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.
