Our journey to digital transformation: SMART. 

Secure, Mobile, Agile, Readily Connected, Team-centric.

What companies want is clear: to tackle digital transformation as quickly and efficiently as possible. But questions of admin, security, and scalability can throw many a spanner in the works of a modern workplace. With the Bechtle SMART Workplace Managed Cloud Service offerings for Microsoft 365, we tackle all the challenges for you and clear your path to a future-ready business.

Additional work demands more time. Bechtle handles time-intensive management of your desktops, mobile devices, smartphone, and Microsoft Cloud application and service subscriptions. Your IT department can then fully concentrate on its strategic tasks and business goals.

Unyielding budgets become plannable investments. Keep your financial flexibility. Pay only for the applications and services you need. If the number of employees changes, the services change to match, so it’s virtually impossible to have too many or too few licences.

Simple administration despite high security requirements.

Increased security requirements, a shortage of skilled workers and a constantly rising administrative burden - the challenges facing companies today can be overwhelming. Find out how a SMART Workplace from Bechtle can support you.
