Intex, a consultancy specialising in management systems based on international standards, was named "Compliance Management Software Provider of the Year" at the 19th Kenya ICT Excellence Awards. Hosted by the Computer Society of Kenya, the award is an indicator that Intex has performed at the highest level in their category, and can be considered as the best in offering compliance consultancy services in Kenya and the region in general.
Joe Karanja, Intex Management Services’ Managing Consultant, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. Our driving force has been our passion for excellence. Our business is based on international best practice and world class systems and this means that excellence has to be a core value within our organisation. We go to great lengths to ensure that the customer need and pain is identified fully so that we can quickly and efficiently help them meet their requirements.
"There is an increasing awareness of compliance in Kenya and in the region of Africa as a whole, as our economies become more competitive and our industries more regulated. Customers and citizens are demanding better goods and services from organisations and government, and we aim to help organisations meet their compliance and quality requirements efficiently and effectively. In that respect, we are extremely pleased that our work has been recognised with this outstanding award."
