PRESS RELEASE ISSUED BY MICROZONE

[ Johannesburg, 20 February 2008 ] – Integr8 IT, South Africa’s largest privately owned national BEE ICT network integration and infrastructure management specialist, has once again exceeded all requirements needed to become recognised as a preferred HP partner.

The national provider of ICT managed services is one of the select HP preferred partners (from approximately 6 800 resellers) and is authorised to resell and support HP products.
 

Robert Sussman, joint-MD of Integr8 IT.
According to HP, the status of Preferred Partner is only conferred upon resellers that have demonstrated a consistent and superior level of knowledge, commitment and expertise in the IT industry.

Robert Sussman, joint-MD of Integr8 IT, says the company’s affiliation to the HP Partner Programme is a very important element of the overall business strategy to add value to clients.

“The market requires that service providers, more specifically those that work with the latest in information and communication technology and digital lifestyle solutions, demonstrate a specific level of skill, knowledge, expertise and experience. Suffice to say that we do place a premium on technical skills sets of the highest order,” says Sussman.

Vileshen Moodley, Partner Business Manager, HP South Africa, said Integr8 IT’s role as a value-added reseller will benefit its client base and help entrench the value of HP product direction and development going forward.
