In 2003, COREX was a distributor of Gaming Products – from Components to Peripherals and everything in-between. Through the years, COREX built a strong following within the Channel which solidified our position as a Market Leader in Gaming Components and Peripherals.
In 2012, COREX identified the market is in a state of evolution and possibly even a Technological Revolution. This evolution has allowed for the expansion of well positioned Manufactures, Value Added Distributors and Value Added Resellers. There are definite pressures in the B2C market space which has been driven by commoditisation that has created low barriers of entry. These pressures have had a positive affect by increasing the penetration of Technology to the African Continent. The increased adoption of Technology from Home Users, Enterprises and Government has developed a society that understands the need to embrace technology as a necessary part of general day to day activities.
Today, with this insight into the current market, COREX is positioned and respected to produce our Vision - To build a Company that can deliver Products, Services and Socio-economic focused Solutions to our Country and our Continent that will provide a better place to live, to work and to prosper, for all.
Vision and Mission
Our vision has and will continue to be to reinvent South Africa’s distribution business model and initiate a paradigm shift that will be built on new cloud-based business platforms and processes, developing long-term profitable relationships with empowered, upskilled partners. We endeavour to apply the latest technology, solutions, and operations to make a better contribution to the African people.
Aligning our Vision, COREX has developed our Mission – To embrace technological innovation with our primary objective in advancing GDP, life expectancy, literacy and levels of employment for all countries on the African continent
To execute the COREX Mission, we have developed three Business Divisions that work synonymously with each other to conceptualise, analyse and design our Core Solutions. The Gaming and Peripherals Division makes up the consumer facing side of the business while Security and Networking along with Infrastructure and Solutions make up the business facing side of our business.
Utilising these Divisions COREX can offer the following Core Solutions:
e-Healthcare: Healthcare systems around the globe are experiencing tremendous pressure to improve services while containing costs. There is a trend towards real-time, paperless and film-free patient monitoring, nursing care and medical record tracking. The complexity and diversity of clinical environments requires advanced yet flexible technology, the ability to quickly adapt and customize, and a high level of integration and networking to deliver an error free Healthcare system.
e-Government: Consists of the digital interactions between a citizen and their government (C2G), between governments and government agencies (G2G), between government and citizens (G2C), between government and employees (G2E), and between government and businesses/commerce (G2B). Through the utilization of Information Technology, Information and Communication Technologies, and other web-based telecommunication technologies to improve and/or enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery in the public sector.
e-Learning: Is broadly synonymous with instructional technology, information and communication technology (ICT) in education, EdTech, learning technology, multimedia learning, technology-enhanced learning (TEL), computer-based instruction (CBI), computer managed instruction, computer-based training (CBT), computer-assisted instruction or computer-aided instruction (CAI), internet-based training (IBT), flexible learning, web-based training (WBT), online education, virtual education, virtual learning environments (VLE) (which are also called learning platforms), m-learning, and digital education.
Public Safety Networks: Public safety is vital to social stability, economic growth and people’s well-being for each and every country in the world. With the rapid urban development of cities in most nations, the crime rates and other public safety events (such as natural disasters, accidents, public health crisis, and social instability) keep increasing, and the public safety agencies are seriously challenged to meet their mandates to protect lives, properties and infrastructures.
Smart Factory: Intelligent machinery, future looking systems and remote control platforms are deployed in an unmanned manufacturing factory. The future scenario of the “smart factory” represents the zenith industrial automation and labour. The factory can be modified and expanded at will, combines all components from different manufacturers and enables them to take on context related tasks autonomously. Integrated user interfaces will still be required at most for basic functionalities. The complex control operations will run wirelessly and ad hoc via mobile terminals such as PDAs or smartphones.
Smart Transportation: Smart Transportation Systems (STS) are advanced applications and hardware which, without embodying intelligence as such, aim to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management and enable various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.
Smart Grid: A smart grid is a modernized electrical grid that uses analogue or digital information and communications technology to gather and act on information, such as information about the behaviours of suppliers and consumers, in an automated fashion to improve the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity. Electronic power conditioning and control of the production and distribution of electricity are important aspects of the smart grid.
Smart Retail: Smart Retail refers to solutions that consolidate and automate most aspects of any retail environment streamlining inventory management, providing real-time information monitoring, extending manageability on the go and client centric retail management solutions.
Smart City: A smart city (also smarter city) uses digital technologies to enhance performance and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. Key 'smart' sectors include transport, energy, retail, healthcare, energy and services. A smart city should be able to respond faster to city and global challenges than one with a simple 'transactional' relationship with its citizens.
Smart Home: The smart home of the future is on that is automated. Home automation is the residential extension of building automation. It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security.
Data Centre: A data centre is a dedicated space where companies can keep and operate most of the ICT infrastructure that supports their business. This would be the servers and storage equipment that run application software and process and store data and content. For some companies this might be a simple cage or rack of equipment, for others it could be a room housing a few or many cabinets, depending on the scale of their operation.
Digital Signage: Digital Signs are used in way finding, place making, exhibitions, public installations, marketing and indoor/outdoor advertising. Digital signs use technologies such as LCD, LED and Projection to display content such as digital images, video, streaming media, and information and can be found in public spaces, transportation systems, museums, stadiums, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, government institutions, the banking sector and corporate buildings etc.
National Broadband: A National Broadband Network (NBN) is a national wholesale-only, open-access data network, a number of which are under development. he network is based on the premise that fixed line and wireless broadband connections are sold to retail service providers (RSP), who then sell Internet access and other services to consumers, with certain portions of the network being public, open and free or with a nominal fee in urban centres.
Retail & Hospitality: Reflects the feeling of familiarity and security that customers experience when they enter a hotel, pub, restaurant or other establishment and know what level of service and quality they expect. Utilising well defined Software and Hardware, the customer is always classified as the
Security & Surveillance: Provides sophisticated yet powerful video-centric solution by understanding the unique needs and challenges of the industry. There is no one-size-fits-all solutions but rather uniquely tailor made solution to best accommodate the needs of the environment.
Intelligent Rail Communication & Signalling: iRail otherwise termed Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) is a railway signalling system that makes use of the telecommunications between the train and track equipment for the traffic management and infrastructure control. By means of the CBTC systems, the exact position of a train is known more accurately than with the traditional signalling systems. This results in a more efficient and safer way to manage the railway traffic. Metros (and other railway systems) are able to improve headways while maintaining or even improving safety. The same goes for cargo rail systems where efficiency, tracking and safety are much improved.
Unified Communication & Collaboration: Is the integration of real-time, enterprise, communication services such as instant messaging (chat), presence information, voice (including IP telephony), mobility features (including extension mobility and single number reach), audio, web & video conferencing, fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), desktop sharing, data sharing (including web connected electronic interactive whiteboards), call control and speech recognition with non-real-time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voicemail, e-mail, SMS and fax). UC&C is not necessarily a single product, but a set of products that provides a consistent unified user-interface and user-experience across multiple devices and media-types.
Hosted Services: Hosted Services in its most basic form is the leasing of hosted solutions (hardware or software) to single users, small to medium businesses or enterprise customers. The services offered can be broken down into many different categories but the four main overarching services would be: Dedicated Hosting, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Web Hosting.
