From bedroom to boardroom

Specialising in the support of local SME IT systems, Netsurit has grown exponentially in the last seven years. Now it`s taking some of its service offerings and expertise overseas.

Orrin Klopper is the co-founder and entrepreneur behind Netsurit, a company that specialises in the maintenance and servicing of small and medium enterprise (SME) networks. This highly charged, fast-talking and shrewd businessman exudes a will for action. One could scarcely imagine Klopper being in another line of work; Netsurit seems to be an extension of his personality. But, as a businessman, he`s astute enough to realise that entrepreneurs may be good at developing business ideas, but it`s an entirely different ballgame running the business.

Netsurit opened its doors in the late 1990s and today has 110 dedicated, technically skilled employees serving 160 clients in South Africa. The company has doubled its earnings year-on-year, reporting R40 million in annual turnover during the last financial year. Today, the company is recognised by the industry as one of the country`s top outsourcing businesses for SMEs and is one of Microsoft`s Gold Certified Partners. The most recent acknowledgement of its success was when Netsurit was recognised as one of the top companies at the 2007 Microsoft Partner Program Awards, at Microsoft`s Worldwide Partner Conference held in July. The company, one of four South African companies, was awarded the Partner of the Year accolade in Competing to Win: Linux/LAMP, following the award for best World Sales and Marketing Partner for 2006.
