Every year Microsoft honors the most successful participants in the Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher Program with an award as Top Sales Partner in the respective region. After 2016, bb-net was able to secure the award and thus the top position in the German market for a second time this year.
At the end of May 2018, the global head of the MAR program, Santiago Lorenzo, was a guest in Munich to exchange ideas with the German processors and to present Microsoft's plans for the future of the program. In this context, he personally presented the award to bb-net sales manager Marco Kuhn.
"We are very pleased to have made it to first place again this year and to receive the corresponding honor from Microsoft," explains Marco Kuhn. “The partnership with Microsoft continues to make a decisive contribution to our success, because we can offer our customers legally compliant software with no doubts about its authenticity. That is why it is our incentive to maintain our leading position in the future.”
To enable professional refurbishers like bb-net to sell the revised notebooks and PCs with new original Microsoft software and a new license, Microsoft launched the Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher - or MAR for short - program in 2007. Worldwide, only about 75 companies currently meet the software manufacturer's strict requirements in the areas of quality, competence and data security. bb-net has been an official MAR partner since 2011 and has been able to continuously increase its sales of pre-installed devices over the years.
During a staff meeting, the management of bb-net media GmbH thanked their entire workforce with a medal and a voucher. “This performance is not based on a single person, but on the cooperation of all areas of the company. It is important to us to share this success with all employees so that we can continue to achieve top performance in the future, ”says Michael Bleicher, founder and managing director of bb-net. “When you consider that only 75 companies worldwide are allowed to participate in the program, it is an honor to be part of it at all. If you are also the most successful participant in your region, that naturally makes you very proud. "
