Turrito Networks, a converged communication provider under the MICROmega Group of companies, has been named as the Famous Brands IT Supplier of the Year, for its simplified network, strategic five year technology roadmap and their approach as a trusted convergence partner.

Over the last 18 months, Turrito Networks’ solution has resulted in Famous Brands achieving a 99.96% uninterrupted network (less than 6 hours total downtime out of 12,960 hours). This in comparison to previous years, where availability to a distribution centre could dropped for days at a time. Network downtime hampers the ability of Famous Brands’ distribution centres to process and distribute orders to the more than 1,880 franchises around the country.

“Congratulations to the entire Turrito Networks team on being chosen ahead of half a dozen IT vendors, to become our IT Supplier of the Year. I certainly sleep better knowing that our network is managed by their team,” said Chris Botha, Group IT Executive for Famous Brands.

Says Louis Jardim, Commercial Director for Turrito Networks, “Our success can only be measured by the results we deliver to our customers. This recognition by Famous Brands, an iconic South African company, is a testimony to our commitment to delivering a strategic, long term partnership with our customers, and tackling their IT challenges.”
