Contrary to the experiences and outcomes of many a start-up company within the information and communications technology (ICT) industry, the Endeavor-supported Integr8 Group has grown exponentially since its inception in 2001. The company, founded by Endeavor Entrepreneurs Robert Sussman (pictured) and Lance Fanaroff, has defied the odds and emerged as South Africa’s largest privately owned managed ICT service provider — a strong example of Africa’s ICT and telecommunication capability.
The 550+ employee company serves a growing regional, national and international client base that requires bleeding-edge information communication and telecommunications technology to keep up with the demands of the modern market.
Integr8’s business model is based on the provision of both on-and off-site/remote service delivery. Customers are connected to a central high-tech, fully equipped digital hub called the Integr8 Nerve Centre®, through which they are guaranteed always-available service and support.
Executive management has focused on the quality and quantity of the company’s intellectual property, exposure to next-generation technology, systems and solutions in order to develop and roll-out its service portfolio.
Ongoing training and consistent exposure to international vendor offerings has helped to ensure that the company has the expertise, resources and knowledge to meet requirements.
Integr8 is the preferred service provider to a range of businesses across a variety of sectors and industries. These clients are spread across the company’s South and Southern African network, as well as regional branch network throughout Africa.
The company’s South African coverage is driven from its operations located in Gauteng, Cape Town, Durban, Bloemfontein, East London, George, Nelspruit, Polokwane and Port Elizabeth.
This extensive operation also supports nine key regions in Africa, including Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Integr8’s Endeavor Entrepreneurs believe that a major opportunity lies in addressing requirements within developing business markets, those that stand to benefit from access to previously attainable services.
There is now opportunity for any-sized business to leverage off unified communications, cloud-based services and growth within telecommunications.
Control and application of resources is critical to operations. This is the frontier in which this Endeavour member operates and this is where it aims to make its competitive advantage count.
