we believe…

  • that integrity is the foundation of everything we do
  • that trust is earned
  • in focus and simplicity
  • in the power of true and authentic collaboration
  • that profit is a result, not the purpose of our business

Established in 2015, the goal of the founders was to create a business that would excite and astonish their clients. They wanted the name of the business to reflect what they sought to achieve and thus the name wauko was born – the phonetic spelling of “wow company”.

True wau! can only be achieved by targeting a level of service that will greatly impress our clients. With an attitude challenging conventional thinking, combined with our innovative solutions and state-of-the-art technology, we assist our clients in achieving extraordinary results. We believe in adding real value for our clients (determinable, distinguishable and sustainable) by continually evolving and being significantly better in everything we do.

wauko engages with its clients to gain a full understanding of their business, their cash flow cycle and their banking solutions. This approach allows us to shorten their cash flow cycle and make it more productive by implementing tailor-made policies and processes that align with the key business drivers. By focusing on the full business, as well as its processes, we maximise efficiencies, while minimising the risk factors for the organisation as a whole.
