Every year the daily newspaper Die Presse, PwC Austria and the KSV1870 credit protection association select the most successful companies in Austria. The renowned ALC prizes are awarded in the categories nationally active small companies (turnover up to 10 million euros), nationally active large companies (turnover over 10 million euros) and internationally active companies. The decisive factors are turnover and earnings growth over the past three financial years. Liquidity and the equity ratio also play an important role.
In 2018, the Bechtle IT system house Austria achieved a turnover of around 103 million euros - an increase of 36 percent compared to 2017. 2018 thus marked the most successful financial year since the start and market entry in Austria eleven years ago.
"In view of the high complexity of IT systems and the increased demands placed on IT as a result of digitization, the use of managed services has become massively more important," explains Robert Absenger, Managing Director of Bechtle IT Systemhaus Austria. "We have successfully positioned ourselves in this area and realised interesting orders such as an international client project for Wienerberger AG". Large corporations such as PORR also rely on the Bechtle IT system house for their IT infrastructure. "In addition, we work together with clients from the public sector, for example as partners in federal procurement.
Another clear success factor: a strong team that is represented at a total of six locations throughout Austria and is therefore close to the customer. "We have developed into an attractive employer, which is a decisive competitive advantage," says Bechtle Managing Director Robert Absenger. "In addition, Bechtle AG stands behind us as a corporate and competence network with over 11,000 employees. Here we can draw on the best know-how pools and excellent manufacturer relationships."
