The following press release was issued by Endeavor company The Integr8 Group. Founded in 2001 by Lance Faranoff and Robert Sussman, Integr8 is the largest privately held ICT company on the African continent, providing a complete range of sophisticated IT outsourcing services.
The Integr8 Group, South Africa’s largest privately owned ICT managed services provider, is the number one Managed Service Provider (MSP) in South Africa for the second consecutive year, the third best in EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) and the only South African company amongst the top thirty five worldwide.
This is according to the latest MSPmentor 100 Report brought out by the global guide to managed services produced by Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. The annual report is a culmination of analysis and expert review by international industry specialists. It is based on calculated index measurement metrics that include overall managed services revenue, overall managed services revenue growth and number of devices managed, as well as global standards. This is the second year in a row Integr8 has been listed as the top MSP in SA and also the second year running it has achieved listing amongst the top fifty companies globally, with a ranking of 33rd.
Robert Sussman, joint CEO at Integr8, is immensely proud of the company’s proven position in the way it delivers its leading edge services. He believes this success is down to a combination of over a decade’s worth of experience in building the technology, educating the best minds in the industry and instilling a culture of relentless winners. The core aggregation of this comes together in the company’s client centric entrenched Nerve Centre® operation and leveraged platform.
“The Nerve Centre® has once again been recognized as a leading core offering where we differentiate ourselves by not only the innovative services provided, but the way in which these are provisioned. An independent rating from MSPmentor, solidifies our roadmap, whereby we are comfortable that we remain 18 to 24 months ahead of the closest global competitor,” says Sussman.
“We have the critical mass the publically traded companies maintain, yet we have coupled entrepreneurial innovation that is core to our value system as we are one hundred percent privately owned by people that work in the company. Our Nerve Centre® is a cohesive, tight unit and we are able to deliver a proactive, instantaneous service as a result of this operation and the established platform that we have developed. This incorporates our technology insight, infrastructure, expertise, intelligence and ability to pro-act on change, not react to it. This is what the market demands and this is the level of agility we have to continue to instill,” he adds.
The Fifth Annual MSPmentor 100 Report, incorporating a list of the world’s top 100 MSPs was unveiled in a live webcast on 15 February.
