ALSO's ecosystem has been developed over the last ten years based on our Supply business, the distribution of hardware, software and services.
With a constantly optimized portfolio, our state-of-the-art webshop, warehouses all over Europe and a highly efficient logistics system, we are connecting the vendors and buyers of the ICT industry . They can call on a broad spectrum of services in the logistics or finance sector.
After starting out as a wholesaler of equipment for the ICT sector, ALSO has developed over the past ten years into a technology provider with products and services for IT solutions, the cloud, the IoT, and other digital platforms.
We offer the vendors access to more than 110 000 resellers, who can call up a wide range of other customized services in the logistics, finance, and IT services sectors, as well as traditional wholesale services. From developing complex IT landscapes, to providing and updating hardware and software, to taking back, reprocessing, and remarketing IT hardware, ALSO offers all services from a single source in keeping with a circular economy.
At the heart of our supply business is the ALSO E-Commerce webshop. It serves as an effective and efficient 24/7 purchasing platform for our resellers, whom we enable to distribute products to the end customers.
In our webshop we are striving to establish a fully automated sales and marketing process. Its comprehensive search engine shows all product details, pricing and availability in real-time. Customers have a complete overview of their open and closed orders, invoices and the delivery status of current orders. A multitude of tools ranging from collecting and consolidating orders during the day, a ‘re-order’ functionality, qualitative configurators to find the right supplies, licenses and vendor-specific products to receiving instant specific project prices from key vendors, are all intended on making shopping as fast, secure and convenient as possible. Even online webinars and trainings are available via the shop. Analytics dashboards give ALSO the insight to constantly increase the relevance of the portfolio and optimize customer experience.
You are a channel partner and want to grow your business with us?
Many IT companies are small and medium sizes businesses like value add resellers (VARs), system houses, or smaller regional and local resellers. These buyers are not necessarily served directly by the vendors of IT products. These manufacturers use ALSO as their multiplier and amplifier as well as their sensor in the market. We offer them aspects such as temporary storage, fine logistics, financing, sales and marketing. Outsourcing these services reduces complexity and costs for the vendors and at the same time easy access to the various channels and regions. Smaller vendors, who do not have own country organizations, use ALSO to obtain access to new markets.
