About us

 
Personal Touch Computing was established in 1992. Its main focus was on-site delivery of desktop training to corporate clients. In 1996 Added Advantage was established, to provide small group training to the SME client base of Global Z-Data and Moores Rowland. In 2000 Personal Touch Computing and Added Advantage merged in order to deliver end-user training and a more seamless service to their customers.

Added Advantage has been growing from strength to strength as a preferred service provider for many organisations.
