The Integr8 Group, South Africa’s largest privately owned managed ICT services provider, has been ranked as fifth best managed services provider (MSP) worldwide and number one managed service provider in South Africa and Africa by publishers of the MSPmentor 100 report.

This distinguished list and research report covered MSPs from North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia, and officially positions Integr8 as the second fastest growing managed service company internationally.

It also means that Integr8 is the only South African company to make it among the top fifty MSPs globally and one of only two to make it onto the top 100 worldwide list.

The fourth-annual MSPmentor 100 survey, in which Integr8 is ranked, is based on calculated index measurement metrics factor and global standards.

Jan Roux, Managing Director, 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.

Only two South African companies were ranked in the Top 100 Worldwide list.

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.

“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.”
