Intervate, a T-Systems company specialising in digital transformation solutions centred around user productivity, user experience, business process automation and enterprise content management solutions, has unveiled its new brand identity.
The new brand aims to reaffirm Intervate’s philosophy of ‘anything’s possible’ while aligning the brand more closely with that of parent company, T-Systems South Africa.
Craig Mitchelmore, head of Intervate (North), says: “We have been successfully delivering cutting edge solutions for over seventeen years, and in that time we have established ourselves as the leading South African Microsoft partner for information, worker and collaboration solutions. Becoming a part of the global T-Systems organisation has created opportunities for us to expand our horizons, tap into new growth opportunities and develop new competencies and solution offerings that are assisting organisations to engage their digital transformation strategies. Our new brand stands to reaffirm our commitment to innovation, while underscoring our cohesive ties with T-Systems.”
Intervate’s brand relaunch follows hot on the heels of T-Systems’ announcement to partner closely with Microsoft, to assist organisations in taking full advantage of Microsoft’s Azure Cloud computing service. Microsoft recently announced plans to deploy local Azure datacentres in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
“The combined relationships that both Intervate and T-Systems have with Microsoft will enable us to leverage Azure as our hyperscale public cloud platform of choice. This will strengthen and extend our Microsoft offering while T-Systems’ customers can tap into Intervate’s user centric, innovation driven portfolio of offerings. The synergies are extensive and create a perfect triangulation,” adds Mitchelmore.
“The market is changing rapidly and we need to assist our customers to engage the digital era effectively,” says Mpumi Nhlapo, Head of Marketing and Communications at T-Systems South Africa. “We have been working towards aligning the T-Systems and Intervate teams more closely to bridge our core value propositions and build synergies between the two organisations, delivering greater value to our customers.”
One such example is the recently announced Design Thinking Labs, a consulting service that marries creative technology concepts together with design thinking principles, and applies them to solve business problems. The new offering will not only help Intervate to co-create solutions to resolve burning business problems with their customers, but will also be used to drive a new form of engagement with customers within T-Systems as well.
Nhlapo adds: “Furthermore, customers are looking for unique and consumer-led solutions. The Intervate brand coupled with a reaffirmed collaboration with the broader T-Systems, is aimed at strengthening our ability to deliver exactly that, while remaining a step ahead of the curve.”
Intervate will retain its autonomy as a separate business within T-Systems and the team will continue, as a group of agile, innovative creative strategists, to introduce innovative solutions for enterprises to be able to engage their customers as well as their internal communities in rapidly evolving digital world.
