Founders of Rulo Consulting

Louis Oosthuizen

After matriculating at Hoërskool Piet Potgieter in Mokopane (Potgietersrus), Louis studied at Pretoria Technikon for his National Diploma in Accounting. 

While completing his studies he joined WC Botha & Kie accountants as an article clerk.  He gained valuable accounting knowledge and experience that formed the cornerstone of his future.  It was during this time Louis was introduced to Pastel Version 1.  He found his passion in Pastel and later started his first steps as a Pastel Consultant and moved to Ed Unique after 6 years in an accounting practice.  At Ed Unique for the following 2 years, he acquired experience and skills in the use of accounting principles on Pastel, that has now become a World Renowned name in Accounting Software.

During 2001 Louis started his own business as a specialized Pastel Consultant.  Keeping his certification current, he provided business solutions to many clients over the next 14 years.  Across many business types, schools specifically found a focus in his expertise.

Endeavouring to broaden service and quality to clients, he founded Rulo Consulting with Rudi Pheiffer.

Rudi Pheiffer

After matriculating at Hoërskool Wolmaransstad in Wolmaransstad, Rudi studied at the University of the Free State for his B.Compt accounting degree.

At the same time he started his accounting articles at Coopers & Lybrand, which later became PriceWaterhouseCoopers Inc.  It was during this time that Rudi found an interest in the computerized accounting environment through his introduction to Pastel V3.  After completing his articles, Rudi spent the next 4 years as a Certified Pastel Consultant, providing services to the very clients he assisted in drafting financial statements.

It was at this point that Rudi left Bloemfontein to join Sage Pastel Accounting as a support agent.  Moving through many opportunities in Sage Pastel, including training and account management, he finished off his career as the National Channel Manager for Sage Pastel Accounting in South Africa.

He then returned to the Pastel market as a consultant at a Pastel Reseller for the next 3 years, developing his skills in the ERP market.
