Bechtle Global IT Alliance.

With Bechtle offices already serving customers in 14 European countries, we decided to reach beyond continental borders. Since 2014, we’ve forged an IT alliance with ten solid partners on all continents, ensuring the same Bechtle quality around the world. Each partner in the Global IT Alliance (GITA) was carefully selected to meet our high service, process and portfolio standards. Our shared goal: Provide customers with a full range of global services no matter where they’re located.

Six strong partners. 

Since opening the doors of our first international subsidiary in 1996, Bechtle today operates in 14 European countries. In the meantime, we’ve added another aspect to our strategy by creating an alliance of – currently six – strong partners around the world. The purpose of the alliance is to meet the increasing demand by global businesses for comprehensive customer support around the world. In short, we’ve embarked on a promising journey.

 

Delivering consistent quality.

Global companies don’t want to waste their time looking for individual IT providers for each of their international offices. We meet several times leading up to our cooperation agreements, allowing us to review our potential partner’s portfolio, online shop and service quality in depth. We plan to continue pursuing partnerships within and beyond Europe.
