People are saying that German SMEs are running out of gas, and their lack of progress is endangering other branches of industry, for example production. But let’s be honest – Is this really the truth?

All sights are locked on growth. While the diggers have long since gone from the headquarters in Neckarsulm and the Gaildorf site, in other places, it’s all kicking off. Building work is currently taking place across eight Bechtle branches in Germany and Switzerland—from small alterations to entire new buildings on greenfield sites. One thing is certain, idle time is not an option.

Freiburg is one of those places people always say is beautiful and where the sun always shines. In fact, it’s pretty easy to wax lyrical about Germany’s southernmost city and no other place comes close to Freiburg’s magnificent landscape and picturesque old town with its labyrinthine alleyways and happy, bicycling residents. What can we say? It’s true. Freiburg really is beautiful.

Back in March 2020, as the COVID-19 lockdown was announced, many administrations and businesses were suddenly faced with the challenge of equipping their employees for working from home. Within a short time, the market had been stripped of IT equipment and many people learned to appreciate the value of used hardware. From a sustainability point of view, the spotlight has been increasingly turned on remarketing products, a topic we recently discussed with Alexander Thiele, Managing Director of Bechtle Remarketing GmbH in Wesel.

Vienna? Of course! Salzburg? Beautiful. But have you ever been to Graz? For many international travellers, Graz still seems to be an under-the-radar stop on the tourist trail. Austria’s second biggest city combines avant-garde and the traditions, futuristic buildings and traditional costumes with ease.

The Global IT Alliance (GITA) had him firmly under its spell and now he’s back. Eight years after GITA’s conception, co-founder Emery Geosits is now its executive director.

We know, Frankfurt doesn’t have the best reputation. The city located on the banks of the River Main is seen as boring and ugly, the inhabitants small-minded and the night life practically non-existent.

The introduction of Microsoft Surface Laptops into the school opens the door for tailored lessons that can respond to the children’s individual needs.

Hurray for our female colleagues! March 8 is a special day and since 2019 even a public holiday in the state of Berlin - International Women's Day. It was celebrated for the first time more than 100 years ago and was born in the struggle for equality, emancipation and the right to vote for women. Around the world it is celebrated in very different ways, our female colleagues tell us how:
