University Librarian, University of Fort Hare

I have known WWIS from the time when the company started in 2006. Since then, WWIS have been providing excellent service for our Library at the University of Fort Hare, suplying both our print and electronic resources.

This is a company that keeps abreast with the developments in the field of information provisioning, that is so rapidly developing and changing. Their understanding of both National and International imperatives is very impressive. The company always endeavors to have academic and research institutions cost-effective access to critical scholarly information. Their negotiations skills with databases owners who sometimes are very intransigent, is very impressive.

The company provides “just in time” kind of services. They are extremely reliable and dependable.

They interact with customers at human leve, truly embodying the “Batho Pele” priciples – that is people first before profits.

I can confidently recommend WWIS as a solid reliable supplier.

Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) has had a long-standing relationship with WorldWide Information Services (WWIS). WorldWide Information Services (WWIS) was formerly known as Mast Publications. On the 1st January 2006, the current management team bought out Mast from the AdvTech Group. The name of the company was then changed to WWIS to better reflect the strategic direction of the company.

WWIS has proven to be very reliable in providing a caring yet professional service. WWIS continuously accommodate HSRC in a way that the service received fits into our workflow and processes.

The e-resources department is especially appreciative of the fact that WWIS provides a quick turn-around time and they are good in solving technical issues related to access to electronic resources.

HSRC looks forward to many more years of excellent service from WWIS. I therefore will not hesitate to recommend WWIS for the services you anticipate to involve them in.
