Reconditioning of used business hardware at the highest level - that is the claim of the reconditioner and special distributor bb-net media GmbH from Schweinfurt in Lower Franconia.
At this year's CeBIT, the final details of the ITscope partnership were discussed and since March 12, 2015, “tecXL - brand technology like new” can be found on the IT channel platform ITscope.com.
ITscope.com is now the standard tool for price and product research in the B5.000B ICT market for over 2 specialist dealers and industry participants and lists a large number of the most important German and European players in the market with over 200 suppliers. Suppliers of used and new goods are becoming increasingly important on the platform.
ITscope.com sees a real opportunity for the channel for professionally reconditioned devices. With bb-net media and its quality brand tecXL, a long-term strategic partner has now been found who meets the quality requirements of the price comparison portal.
Thanks to intensive project work between the two companies, it is now possible to transfer reconditioned goods to the comparison portal via an interface with all article masters, data sheets as well as EAN codes and real-time stocks. Other resellers of tecXL devices now also have the option of placing their offers on the platform.
But not only the listing of premium business devices from manufacturers Lenovo, Dell, HP and Fujitsu in the second life cycle on ITscope.com is new, but also the innovative offer module from ITscope.com. It now offers customers and providers even more options to reduce media disruptions and accelerate processes.
"With the new offer function, dealers can make offers including price calculation available to the end customer online directly from the ITscope catalog and thus the entire process of preparing offers from negotiating the conditions to ordering the required products, including optimized distribution among several suppliers, without media discontinuity transact. An API provides the product, offer and order data collected for merchandise management systems ”- says Benjamin Mund, Managing Director at ITscope.
Retail is finally getting what it should be: Completely digital and therefore faster and more efficient for registered retailers, without neglecting the personal component, ie the direct exchange with the end customer.
With ITscope, a strong added value arises for the specialist retailer through the bundling of several advantages: high-quality hardware, with which a margin of up to 30% is possible, and an innovative offer module that is extremely easy to use. According to Michael Bleicher, managing director of bb-net media GmbH, the sales department is already enjoying increasing inquiries via the portal and the partnership with the ITscope team.
