Cathexis Technologies successfully concluded its national CathexisVision Roadshow. With events held in Durban, Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg and Cape Town, the objective was to take the Cathexis story to all current and prospective partners, customers, key decision-makers, installers, integrators, consultants and end-users across the country. This would provide delegates with the opportunity to test-drive the latest technology, while gaining insight into the future of security trends.
