A little History

Back in 1990, the late Theo Schoeman was searching for workshop software that would be suitable for the engine rebuilding workshop he was managing at the time. He scrutinised all available workshop management software that was available at the time but soon realised that non could do what he was hoping for. He then teamed up with Leon Teubes, a very competent Clarion programmer and engineer. With Theo’s background in engineering and workshop management, and Leon, being a very experienced programmer, they soon formed a formidable team.

The first AutoPlan workshop management program was implemented in early 1992.

Soon other Automotive Engineers, the likes of Allan Brink – MD of Allan Y Brink, the late Spencer Murray – MD of the Valfrira group of companies, Daan Visagie – MD of Pelma Holdings and others invested in the software. We acknowledge their valuable input over the years that contributed greatly to the superb system the AutoPlan workshop management system has become.

In 1999 Bosau Information Systems (Pty) Ltd was formed with Theo Schoeman as Managing Director and Henri Enslin and Anzet Schoeman as Directors. In 2011, Theo’s daughter, Helena van der Merwe (nee Schoeman), started working at the company, and Theo involved her in every aspect of the business. After Theo passed in 2016, Helena took over the business and works tirelessly towards keeping and improving the company’s mission and value to the industry.

Over the years the AutoPlan system has grown into software that covers every need of the repair industry – from Automotive Engineering workshops, Repair and Service shops, Garages, Specialist Parts Sales, Refurbishment of heavy-duty vehicles and manufacturing of armoured and specialist vehicles.

AutoPlan is a truly unique system design and is developed with a focus on maximising value for its users. Unlike other software products that attempt to cover multiple industries with one application, we have always been committed to the automotive repair, refurbishment, and manufacturing industries, simply because we fully understand their processes and software requirements.

Our Vision

At Bosau Information Systems, our vision is to become a recognised brand and leader in the workshop management software market. We wish to provide intelligent affordable, reliable and accurate software for the high-paced workshop industry.
