Integr8 IT has been identified as an official technology partner and preferred IT supplier by food chain, Nandos.
Representatives from the Gauteng-based ICT company recently attended a Nandos Strategy Conference during which the company was awarded recognition as a Preferred Supplier for 2007 in the technology category.
It is outsourced to support the information and communications infrastructure linking a number of Nandos offices throughout the country.
Branches include Lorentzville, Rivonia, Savoy and Inanda in Johannesburg, as well as additional outlets in Pretoria, Eastern and Western Cape and Pretoria.
Since its appointment more than eight months ago, Integr8 IT has also introduced Nandos to its acclaimed Nerve CentreTM offering.
“This has enabled us to log calls for service from the many Nandos branches and significantly reduce the pressure on the client’s resources to manage and support their infrastructure,” says Robert Sussman, joint MD at Integr8 IT.
Whilst Integr8 IT’s role to date has been focused on stabilizing infrastructure and providing proactive support, there are already plans underway to provide connectivity towards the incorporation of additional infrastructure.
“We have been contracted to provide a proactive service model to the popular restaurant chain and this has worked well for both parties. Being accredited with recognition as a preferred supplier and official technology partner to Nandos is a major achievement,” says Sussman.
Antonio Silva, CIO at Nandos, says he is exceptionally pleased with the level of service received and professional approach by Integr8 IT personnel.
“We are proud to have Integr8 IT as a preferred supplier and IT partner to Nandos. It is an accomplishment and reflects very powerfully on the company’s capability, skills and knowledge in this area. We anticipate a mutually beneficial relationship going forward,” says Silva.
