Atio to shut down

South African ICT service provider ATIO is under business rescue and is in the process of applying to be liquidated.

ATIO was founded in 1986 and is a privately-held provider of information and communications technology services in South Africa.

Wow. That's sad news. I know a few people who started off their careers there.

Real big business in the 1980's. Knew lots of people that worked there. just another example of how a country can in a short 25 years or so, destroy IP and skills for short term expediency.

Very sad to read this.

They would not have been visible in the public really, very niche service they provided also in the telecoms space.

Tell me which ICT entities in SA are actually recruiting? Many are retrenching.

First working experience with Atio was in the Call Center back 2005, they had really good ICT services and then years later 2011 in Telecommunications they always hired the best in the industry. Really sad them shutting down.
