The Integr8 Group, South Africa’s largest privately owned ICT managed services provider, has been ranked as the number one managed service provider (MSP) on the continent, and the fifth best worldwide, by publishers of the Global MSPmentor 100 report.
This distinguished list and research report covered MSPs from North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia. Over and above Integr8’s winning placement, the report officially positions the company as the second fastest growing managed service company internationally.
It also means that Integr8 is the only South African company to ever make it among the top fifty MSPs globally.
The MSPmentor 100 survey is an annual report drafted and published by Nine Lives Media.
The fourth-annual MSPmentor 100 survey, in which Integr8 is ranked, is based on calculated index measurement metrics factor and global standards.
Jan Roux, MD of Integr8, says that everyone at the company is very proud of the achievement and it represents the culmination of years of hard work, dedication and intense focus on managed service delivery and innovation.
“We are thrilled about the position the company has attained amongst so many leading companies and businesses, not only locally, but rather globally.
"To be ranked amongst the top five global MSPs throughout the world is an exceptional achievement, and to be considered as the very best on the continent is a rare accolade and one that we aim to hold onto for as long as possible,” says Roux.
“It is the first time a South African company has made it onto the top fifty list, let alone to be ranked among the top five worldwide. So we are immensely proud of the contribution made by each and every member of the Integr8 team,” he adds.
Since Integr8’s inception in 2001, one of the main strategies developed by executive management was to always remain focused on core operation, competencies and strengths.
In 2001, Integr8 founded the only Nerve Centre based on African soil, providing a digital hub to manage and regulate many of the country’s leading organisations.
This has allowed for true scale that seamlessly crosses geographical boarders, introducing global organisations to the brightest minds in the industries, via a single point of contact for managed services and tier three 24/7/365 support.
“We pledged never to move away from our core competency and focus, which is managed services. Our portfolio remains managed services as well as private and public cloud based services,” Roux continues.
“This is only the beginning. Integr8 is on its way to being the very best of the best internationally.”
