Logicalis UK, the international IT solutions and managed services provider, has announced the official go live of its partnership with Logicalis SA. The move is part of a wider services strategy focusing on supporting the needs of its UK customers by providing a more innovative managed service offering and building out its UK transformational services.
Plans were announced in April to transition the delivery of Logicalis UK’s operational support services to its sister company in Cape Town.

Logicalis SA has been established as a Centre of Excellence in Managed Services.
Established in March 2017, Logicalis South Africa one of six Strategic Centres of Excellence globally, expanding the Logicalis global footprint thereby extending the reach and capabilities available to other regions. Customers are able to leverage the power of Logicalis Group as a whole and benefit from improved customer service, greater flexibility and access to a larger variety of resources and deeper expertise.
Bob Swallow, Managing Director, Logicalis UK, commented: "Increasing our presence in South Africa is part of our global customer centric business strategy. This partnership has allowed us to invest even further in the UK transformational services portfolio. We are committed to enabling and supporting our customers in their digital transformation and our Centres of Excellence approach is a key part of the foundation that will enable us to best achieve this in the future."
Frikkie Grobler, CEO, Logicalis SA, added: "The Logicalis South African team is fully aligned to Logicalis Group’s goal to be the first choice partner for customers on their journey towards digital transformation.
