The big picture.

Creating a world of opportunities with a clear focus on our customers.

How do you operate successfully in a highly specialized market like the public sector? One way is through a network of specialists. Bechtle has been an experienced IT partner in the public sector for years. The tenders we’ve won – for example, a multi-year framework for the supply of IT products for Transport Systems Catapult, as well as two public-sector tenders with the European Commission, the largest in our company’s history – are solid proof of our expertise and successful business model. Bechtle’s Public Sector Division is a master in coordinating central support services for our decentralized offices. The tender team organises and recruits all the required resources of the Group, while specialised managers ensure that the entire Group’s skills are appropriately utilised. They align Bechtle’s resources to meet the specific needs of respective target groups, offer consultation services to sales organisations, and support specific Bechtle Group communities.

With this structure in place, Bechtle is able to meet the special requirements of public-sector customers, i.e. from European Institutions, Central and Local Government, Municipal Government & Schools, Research & Education, Healthcare, Church & Charities, Energy & Organisations. Bechtle is in demand internationally as well. The success we’ve achieved on the European stage since founding the Public Sector Division demonstrates that our business model is effective not just on a regional or national scale; we’ve got what it takes to master large international projects. Bechtle’s Europe-wide presence offers the perfect conditions for fulfilling international EU tenders: with established, reliable and effective logistics and service processes, we’re active in nearly all Western European countries and boast a tightly knit network of partners.
