Terms Used Worldwide For A Security Integrator

I was wondering, especially for those of you outside North America, what the most common term(s) used to describe an integrator.

In the US, I believe the best (or at least most optimistic) term is integrator; as in, a company that actually integrates systems together to help solve a customer's business problems. Systems integrator, security integrator, whatever adjective you want there.

In other places, though, I often see reseller, at least when it comes to selling security hardware and software. I feel the connotation is a bit less of a collaborator or problem solver and more "just a store." But perhaps that's just my American bias.

Do you use integrator (or its translated equivalent) in your country? Or might that term be confused with manufacturers that create integrations?

Thanks!
