Standard Bank


Please take note that Marius Snyman executed a brilliant ACE LB implementation at Standard Bank HQ today. He was extremely supportive and willing to walk the extra mile, which also enticed me to learn more within the ACE LB implementation process. This was an engagement with the ACE LB implementation for the BR2:SUP Sybase (SIT) project.

It’s great working with such a professional individual! Well done, Marius!
