Neckarsulm, 15. July 2019 – Inspire, Microsoft’s global partner conference in Las Vegas, was a double-barrelled success for Bechtle. The award for Microsoft 365 + Surface Partner of the Year (worldwide) is a testament to Bechtle’s outstanding performance in marketing and implementing hardware, software and cloud solutions across the entire Microsoft portfolio. The manufacturer also named Bechtle Surface Partner of the Year (EMEA) for the second year in a row.
With over 80 Surface Master Sellers in its ranks, no other company has more advisers carrying the top certification for Microsoft’s Surface portfolio. Along with Bechtle’s extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the Microsoft ecosystem, this enables the company to optimally showcase how Microsoft’s software and cloud solutions work together on Surface hardware. “Many of our mutual customers are active all over Europe, if not the world. That’s why all our Surface-related activity—promotional campaigns, events and individual services—are all designed to transcend national borders from the ground up. The dual awards presented to us by Microsoft, and not least the implementation of one of the world’s largest projects involving Microsoft 365 and Surface hardware, underscore the dedication and competence of our employees”, says Michael Guschlbauer, COO IT Systems Integration & Managed Services, Bechtle AG.
Jörg Kreykamp, Director Commercial Surface Germany, Microsoft: “This year, together with Bechtle, we have advanced another step, driving our Surface business not just in Germany, but also generating considerable growth in Europe. Across Germany and Europe there was a particular focus on certifying additional resources in response to the high demand for Microsoft solutions.”
