About Us



Ignite is an internet and communication technology provider built to serve SMEs in South Africa. Our purpose? To enable unlimited opportunities for business growth; to be the spark that ignites SMEs' potential.


We recognise that the SME sector in South Africa is a significant contributor to job creation, our economy and to our future. And it's only going to become more vital to our country's progress. We want to be a part of the SME journey by providing our clients with an ecosystem of digital tools that makes running a business easier. Simple, reliable and flexible, our products and services are structured to help you not only reach your business potential, but to exceed it. Because your success is our success.


The Ignite ecosystem is made up of four parts essential for SME growth:

  • Communication. Whether it's emailing your clients, collaborating with teams across locations or promoting your company, effective communication is key to your success.
  • Connectivity. A connection to the internet needs to be strong, reliable and of good quality. That's where Ignite comes in.
  • Cloud. Cloud services have simplified the management and control of IT environments, making it easy for you to have the right infrastructure for the applications you use to communicate, share content and do business.
  • Business Applications. A business is only as good as its people. From recruitment to payroll and accounting, Ignite is here to help you manage the people and numbers behind the work.

We understand that SMEs need to be agile in their approach when operating in a fluctuating economy. Our automated products do not require long-term commitments and can be combined to best suit your business needs. Our plug 'n play solutions are self-service orientated with competitive prices that put you in control. And our 24/7 support means there is always someone available to help you at a moment's notice.

We take our promise of 'Simplicity, Flexibility and Reliability' seriously so you can focus on Your Business. Unlimited.

A brief history of Ignite

Ignite is the result of three companies that merged in April 2016 to provide SME clients with an offering greater than the sum of its parts. IS Ignite, MWEB Business and the IS SME Business Unit joined forces to bring over 40 years' of experience to our SME clients united under the Ignite brand. We did so to offer a world-class client experience and increased efficiencies that allow our clients to focus on their competencies.
