About Us

Our History

For more than 20 years Cogent was held and directed by Public Listed and Venture Capital organisations. In 2012 that all changed. For the first time, Cogent was privately owned, creating the opportunity to completely re-engineer ourselves. With the very best of our existing team and some exciting new additions; Cogent has transformed from being a supplier to an exceptional service partner.  From here, we aspire to be part of your thought leadership.

Our four Directors have an outstanding track record in the ICT industry and have brought a new approach, methodology and professionalism to the communicational space.

Cogent is focused on delivering managed services for ICT, communications, contact centres and data solutions. Our outcome-based Managed Services are elastic and scalable, adapting to our clients business requirements as and when required.
