Offering the services you need.
On your doorstep and around the globe.
No two solutions the same.
International customers can benefit from the Bechtle Group's broad service offering, together with our partner manufacturers and our strong network of partners. We combine our on-site strengths with our international network. This includes the Global IT Alliance (GITA), Global Access, bios®, Export, Bechtle Managed Services, Onsite Services and selected partners as Softline in Moscow.
It’s a double edged sword—you’re expected to keep purchasing costs down, yet your in-house users expect a certain standard of quality. And that’s not the only challenge you find yourself facing as an IT or purchasing manager operating in an increasingly digital value chain. Make space for strategic tasks and become a value creator for your business—with Bechtle by your side throughout the entire procurement process.
bios® is a custom online procurement system designed to save time and money, streamline and accelerate procurement processes, optimise the use of framework agreements across your organisation, and automatically manage your IT assets. And it goes right through to your bottom line—over half of Bechtle’s customers across Europe use bios® to dramatically cut down on IT procurement and management costs.
And they’re getting much more than just hardware and software. Backed by our comprehensive consulting services for all your IT needs—from point products to end-to-end solutions—and combined with bespoke procurement concepts (dispersed or centralised procurement teams, framework agreements, tailored portfolios), bios® has all your bases covered.
As technology allows us to collaborate over even the greatest distances, it opens up a whole new world of international business opportunities. Bechtle has been expanding its business beyond Germany for the past 21 years. What started out as a foray into neighbouring countries evolved into a network of subsidiaries in 14 European countries and today includes partnerships on every continent. Developing global IT solutions has long become part of our daily business. This includes guiding customers through the complex challenges of European and global procurement, offering the necessary flexibility to deliver what they need.
Bechtle’s headquarters are located in Neckarsulm, Germany, right in the heart of Europe. That’s also where we operate our logistics centre, one of the largest and most advanced of its kind. From here, we ship off-the-shelf products as well as tailored solutions around the world, taking extreme care to operate in accordance with the local strategies of our suppliers. Certain products can’t be delivered to certain locations, which is why we rely on an experienced team of highly trained export specialists to ensure that products arrive at their intended destination as promised and in compliance with legal regulations. All goods are thoroughly documented and meet the applicable export requirements.

We treat all our customers alike, no matter which country they are based in, providing them with the same product range, clearly defined SLAs and, if required, a local account manager—all while ensuring simplified cross-European procurement. With Bios (Bechtle information and ordering system), customers have the opportunity to directly access stock in the 14 countries we are located, enabling them to update, among other things, delivery and invoice addresses, and easily search for country-specific products. Another option is structuring procurement workflows for countries where our customers are located, ensuring that central organisations have insight into and control over local ICT policies and expenditure. Having international locations presents a number of challenges and many of our customers need answers to questions like ‘Can you also deliver our standardised product portfolio in other countries?’ and ‘Can you offer us a complete global solution?’ The answer is yes, we do this like no one else can!
