Our history


Ivaan recognises the potential of applying the latest technology to manage utilities simply, but smartly. The idea to form a company to revolutionise the way utilities are managed is born.

Ivaan launches Jager Technologies CC; initially specialising in setting up electronic communication with various hardware components, using custom software.

Bertus de Jager invests in the company and takes it to new heights as CEO. Successfully expands into new markets including custom web-based solutions.

The company starts development of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) and Manual Meter Reading (MMR) software. After achieving success in the private sector, Jager Technologies becomes a major player in the metering industry with an appointment from a locally based power distributor to exclusively read all their AMR bulk meters. Building on this success, a further appointment follows to read all their manual meters too.

Further grand scale expansion with satellite offices in the Free State area where exclusive appointment to read manual meters follow. Local success leads to contracts gained outside the borders of South Africa with an exclusive appointment to read all bulk meters in a northern African region.

Shareholder Marius van Straaten joins the company full time as CIO. The company becomes a major competitor in the industry by developing and registering their STS prepaid system. With in depth expertise and experience in AMR, the company develops one of the first smart prepaid systems in South Africa.

Ivaan de Jager takes over as CEO of Jager Technologies as the company ventures into renewables. The company’s first finely engineered solar system is installed and further expansion into funding of utilities and solar projects is initiated.

In keeping with its astonishing growth, the company is rebranded and launched as Jager. Offices open in Johannesburg, KZN, Namibia and Mossel Bay.

Jager Cape Town opens its doors.
