Our company has been a participant in the Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher - MAR for short - program since 2011. This was launched in 2007 by the software manufacturer to enable professional processors to sell the revised computers and notebooks with a new license and pre-installed Microsoft original software.
We launched the tecXL brand almost at the same time as we were admitted to the MAR program. Since then, almost every notebook, computer and workstation has been equipped with a ready-to-start Windows operating system and all associated drivers. Bb-net has been able to continuously improve its position over the past few years and finally achieved the best sales figures in Germany in the 2015/2016 financial year.
Due to the strict requirements for companies to participate, there are only about 90 Microsoft Authorized Refurbishers worldwide. Apart from a minimum requirement for the number of licenses implemented, factors such as the safe handling of software licenses, technical know-how, high quality processing and documented data deletion are required.
Once a year Microsoft organizes the so-called MAR Summit, a meeting with worldwide partners at which news and changes for the coming year are presented. At this year's event in New York City, bb-net was honored for the first time with the award for the Germany region when the best-selling partner was recognized.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, customers, team members and friends who made this achievement possible together with us.
