Two Dublin companies have secured contracts on Ireland's trade mission to South Africa.

Dublin-based recruitment firm SAON has taken over one of South Africa's biggest websites and plans to re-launch it from new offices. SAON, which has 30 employees, already operates sites in Ireland, the US and Canada.

Meanwhile, Swords-based software firm In1 Solutions is to open offices in Port Elizabeth, having secured a deal which will see its products playing a role in solving accommodation problems during the World Cup in 2010.
