Success Stories

Our Story

Our vision is to create global equity, value, and control in enterprise software. Fuelled by challenging experiences growing up in South Africa, our founder Doug Gibson has drawn on the inspiration of the Invictus poem and its connection to Nelson Mandela to imbue our business with the belief that every organisation and every individual has the potential to become the “master of their fate”.

“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.”
– William Ernest Henley

Client savings:

$825 MILLION

What we do:

Invictus Partners releases the shackles of enterprise software agreements to help our clients optimise cost, realise value and maintain compliance.

Our mission:

To create $2 billion of enterprise software savings globally by 2024.

So far, we’ve hit $825 million.

Why we do it:

Shifting the balance of power.

With Invictus Partners, you’ll get a perspective you probably won’t hear from software vendors and their network of partners. We understand how it feels to get screwed by a software vendor and it doesn’t feel good. That’s why we’re arming our clients with intricate knowledge about their actual software usage versus contractual entitlements, and the tools and processes to help them remain optimised and compliant, so they can negotiate with their software vendors confidently.

After years of working at big vendors, our team had witnessed many organisations spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on unnecessary licence and support costs, and even millions on failing compliance audits. We’re committed to building lasting partnerships with our clients and ensuring they feel empowered in their software vendor relationships, they never get screwed again.
