IT business: a matter for the boss in 2016

Big margins for the channel

January 07, 2016 | IT BUSINESS

Michael Bleicher, head of the refurbisher bb-net, promises a margin of up to 30 percent with remanufactured devices.

ITB: Which trends and developments do you think will shape the IT year 2016?

Through the progressive Digitalization of all areas of life and the increasing need for mobility, cloud solutions and the market for mobile devices will continue to grow. Smartphones and Tablets already took a firm place in the refurbisher market in 2015. Due to their flexibility, however, ultrabooks are also becoming more popular and will gain in importance from 2016 onwards. The growing selection of processed IT is becoming a real alternative to new goods for private and commercial consumers.

ITB: How will you and your company react specifically to this?

At bb-net, everything will remain the "old" in 2016 as well. While the Margin are minimal, we have a product for that Channel created with which up to 30 percent can be generated. Ultrabooks, tablets and smartphones, but also well-known products such as PCs, notebooks and displays will be increasingly processed in the coming year. I'm growing Server & Hosting- and the cloud market, I see opportunities for us and our customers to bring this hardware with "professional experience" back into use.
