About

Logo_dotActive

dotActive provides access to wellness products and service providers whose individual solutions have limited reach or business value. Through crafting solutions that draw on the strengths of our partners, dotActive is able to provide tailored offerings that talk to your company’s specific objectives, and vision, without imposing a rigid product suite that traditionally has limited impact and poor adoption rates.

Supported by our sister company dotConsult, we are able to provide innovative wellness-focused IT solutions that exploit the reach of multiple platforms, including web, mobile, and enterprise platforms. dotConsult also provides consulting and support services to enable disruptive or evolutionary digital transformation journeys depending on the needs of the client.

See our Products and Services page for more info.

Partnerships with leading niche service providers in the healthcare sector allow us to shape our solutions specific to each client’s needs. We do not do a one-size-fits-all approach because wellness is interpreted differently in different sectors and demographic groups. Contact us for a free exploratory discussion on how we can make your next wellness event fun and engaging, while also delivering tangible value for your EAP or member engagement strategy.

Research Partner

Watch this space for an announcement of an exciting partnership with one of the most respected names in disrupting the flawed paradigms of dietary advice that has been perpetuated for the last few decades. With volumes of proven case studies and peer reviewed research, we will provide guidance to our subscribers on how to reverse potentially life threatening chronic ailments. dotActive is committed to furthering this research in a meaningful way, and commits to providing funding to research organisations that support our goal of enabling practical solutions to the health problems that plague the societies in which we live. A percentage of all proceeds from lifestyle products and services offered by dotActive will be contributed in perpetuity to these organisations because change is not cheap. Nor is poor health!

Connecting the Dots

A partner company of dotActive, dotConsult provides key strategic input towards the enablement of the capabilities needed to deliver on the dotActive promise. With extensive experience in digital strategies and transformation initiatives, dotConsult has a broad reach into the IT and Healthcare industries that allows dotActive to tailor a solution that resonates with your corporate identity, rather than a simple rebranded white-label product that disrupts your user journey. Between dotConsult and dotActive, we can integrate our solution offering into any existing standards-based platform to ensure a seamless user experience, thereby maximising potential for adoption.

The Team

dotActive is not just another loyalty program marketplace. The longer-term strategy is to establish it as a credible source of information, with supporting products and services that define the way in which a healthy lifestyle is perceived and experienced by average people. This emphasis on lifestyle is not the typical clichéd approach that most providers lay claim to. Instead, lifestyle in this context refers to a holistic approach that offers services beyond dietary and exercise guidelines.

With this in mind, it was clear from the outset that disrupting a stagnant but bullish market would require visionaries in their field. A collaboration between four key individuals that each have a unique passion for taking such an offering to market resulted in the formation of dotActive, and the development of its unique interpretation of wellness. 

Below is a brief bio of the core team that chose to enable the dream of wellness that is within reach of the average person, rather than being the exclusive domain of the super fit.  

CEO - Zaid Ismail

With more than 11 years’ experience in the South African healthcare industry at market leaders like Discovery Health and Medscheme, Zaid has been instrumental in leading solutions architecture and digital transformation strategies in very complex environments. Having spent almost 20 years in IT and a further 7 years in business, Zaid has the experience and insights to craft innovative solutions that deliver real business value.

His experience as a senior management consultant in the private and public sectors covering industries as varied as finance, justice, petrochemicals, and aeronautics, he has the breadth of experience that gives him unique insights into opportunities that promise to disrupt stagnant markets.

An avid writer, his research and understanding into the human psyche and how the cycle of gratitude influences our choices in life provides insights into the product design philosophies that promise to set dotActive apart from its competitors and ensure sustainability in a volatile industry.

Zaid’s efforts in kick-starting the digital transformation journeys of two leading medical aid brands in South Africa demonstrates his thought leadership and innovative mindset in an industry resistant to change..

COO - Amelia Karg

During her travels and extended stays abroad, Amelia realised the importance of what we put on, and in our bodies in our pursuit of good health. Inspired by her experiences of high end brands in the USA and UK, Amelia founded the Hemptons natural food supplements product range in 2004. A pioneer in her field in South Africa, she brought the first hemp-based natural body care range to the South African market. Amelia subsequently developed, in conjunction with food scientists and nutritionists, an all-plant based sport nutrition range which focuses on providing real food and bio-available nutrition to sport-stressed bodies.

Amelia continues to work with partners in China, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa to develop advanced nutritional products for the sports and wellness market and will be making these available to the subscribers of dotActive.

CMO - Yushaa Matthews

Yushaa’s professional network that extends throughout Africa, and his reach in South Africa makes him a key ally in opening doors to partners and clients that subscribe to the dotActive philosophy. With more than 20 years of experience in the ICT sector, he has filled senior roles in respected multinationals like IBM, Lenovo, Oracle South Africa, and Samsung Electronics to name a few. His professional network extends well into Africa and beyond.

As a passionate entrepreneur, Yushaa serves on the board of several companies. Being a family man with two daughters and a wife, he has a strong focus on empowerment of women, and regularly offers his services as a motivational speaker focusing on mentorship, leadership development, and skills transfer.
