Bechtle Future Proofs Workplace with Citrix

Sponsored by Businesswire

When it comes to the future of technology, Bechtle doesn’t just think
about it. As Germany’s largest IT systems integrator and a leading IT
e-commerce provider in Europe, the company helps organizations around
the world prepare for and capitalize on it. Ditto for the future of
work. On May 21, Bechtle will discuss how it is using digital
workspace solutions
from Citrix
Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ:CTXS) to create a modern work experience that
engages employees and fuels their productivity and success. The company
will participate in a Fireside Chat at Citrix
, the premier digital work conference set to take place at
the Georgia World Congress May 21-23.

“At Bechtle, everyone is part of a strong and connected team and a key
driver of our success,” said Marco Stalder, Team Leader, Citrix
Workspace Services. “As a modern employer in the forward-facing IT
industry, we strive to create a world-class user experience that gives
our employees the freedom and choice to work when, where and how they
want to move our business forward. And Citrix® Workspace™ allows us to
do this.”

Delivering the Future of Work Today

The nature of work has fundamentally changed. And so too have employee
expectations. Work today isn’t a place. It’s a dynamic activity. And
people expect it to be as simple and efficient as their personal lives.

“As an IT company, we try to make things as easy as possible for the
user and deliver a very good user experience because people really need
to enjoy working with the solutions they use to get work done,” Stalder

But he admits this wasn’t always the case. “In the past, user experience
was limited because it was not one of the key priorities in making

Putting Users First

With Citrix Workspace, Bechtle has been able to change this dynamic,
giving employees access to the apps they prefer to use in one unified
experience while also providing IT a single control plane through which
they can onboard and manage application performance without getting in
the way – a critical capability in Stalder’s mind. “Security is
critical, but it must be invisible to the user,” he said.

And the feedback Stalder has received from employees since implementing
the solution has validated the company’s approach. “People tell me what
a pleasure it is to work with the Bechtle Corporate Workspace solution,”
he said. “One person who travels a lot noted that working at 10,000
meters is now as easy as working in the office.”

Bechtle joins a rapidly growing number of organizations around the world
who use Citrix Workspace to power a simple, intelligent and reliable way
to work that engages employees and improves business productivity. Click here
