South Africa-based managed ICT services provider Integr8 has once again been ranked as one of SA’s top performing companies, and will therefore feature in 2013 Top Performing Companies, the definitive guide to the country’s most successful businesses.

Integr8 announced in October 2013 that it had received confirmation of its inclusion in the Guide, developed by Topco Africa Research Campus in conjunction with UCT Research Professor Morne Oosthuizen.

Based on the results of a survey conducted in 2012, covering 3 741 companies, Integr8 will be listed amongst the top businesses in South Africa’s ICT sector. In November 2012 Integr8 achieved a milestone in its development and position in the market when its managed services division Integr8IT, was acquired by Business Connexion (BCX) for an estimated R126-million.

Integr8 was established in 2001 by entrepreneur duo Robert Sussman and Lance Fanaroff and is a provider of annuity-based infrastructure management and managed services to mid-market corporates throughout South Africa and Africa.

The company owns and operates the only African-based Nerve Centre, a digital hub of people, technology and process that regulates, monitors and maintains the technology infrastructure for corporations.

Intergr8’s key IP has been built into this Nerve Centre, which underpins all service management. This includes “self-healing” routines and the intelligent management and real-time remediation of distributed infrastructure.

Sussman is very pleased with the confirmation of the company’s listing in the 2013 Top Performing Companies guide and believes it heralds a new chapter in Integr8’s own development and its continued service to a growing marketplace.

“Africa continues to demonstrate tenacity and a will to innovate. We are proud of our contribution to the sector to date and this acknowledgement by industry reinforces our drive to lead from the front in the integration of technology across various industries, both local and international,” he says.
