Calida AG

“Currently, Calida Group members Calida, Lafuma, and Aubade all operate their own, discrete Exchange infrastructures. Introducing Office 365 under a shared tenant will allow us to dramatically improve productivity and collaboration between these companies for the future without adding complexity. In our cross-company departments, we are already sharing files and information using SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. With the introduction of a unified Exchange Online infrastructure, our employees will be able to collaborate even more easily and benefit from increased transparency.”

Markus Kasper, Head of IT Infrastructure, Calida AG

Comsoft direct is a trusted partner to whom we will also turn in the future in areas beyond the scope of licensing.“

Crowne Plaza Genf

"We came to Comsoft direct after realising that our licenses were not being properly managed. What we appreciated most is that they listened to us, analysed our needs and offered us the best solution for our IT environment. They even helped us with arguments to present the project’s benefits to senior management. We’ve been working with Comsoft direct for several years now (since 2010), not because we have to, but because we want to."

- Maurice Brunner, IT Manager, Crowne Plaza Genf

"We first learned of Comsoft direct at a licensing roadshow. We were given very thorough, expert consultation on the renewal process of our Microsoft Open Value contracts, which were about to expire. We're now planning to renew all our existing contracts through Comsoft direct. This way, we get first-class licensing consultation and management from a single source."

- Marcel Trüb, Chief Information Officer, Erdgas Ostschweiz AG
"Comsoft direct provided us with great consulting services for Office 365 as well as the charity sector, identifying great savings potential for us. We’ve been working with Comsoft direct since 2006 and plan sooner or later to purchase all of our licenses through a single partner."

- Manfred Berger, Team Leader Informatik, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation

"The Comsoft direct team was able to quickly take over our project to consolidate Microsoft licenses for the entire University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO). As the university’s colleges are quite diverse, this required a lot of careful thought and persuasive skill. Comsoft direct was able to master the complexity of the project, and we now have an efficient Microsoft environment that complies with all licensing requirements. My thanks go to the entire team."

-Hervé Le Pezennec, Leader IT-Systems, HES-SO (Fachhochschule Westschweiz)

Jungfraubahn Group
„We are very grateful for Comsoft’s trusting cooperation and multi-layered support, primarily in the area of software,of course, but also in facilitating new technological ideas."

"After being approached by Microsoft for an audit, we turned to our license specialist Comsoft direct for help. Their baseline SAM gave us a quick, comprehensive overview of our licensing situation and server infrastructure, enabling us to begin planning further license purchases. Comsoft direct took all the work for this project off our hands, which we’re very thankful for."

- Walter Wohlgemuth, CIO JURA Materials, JURA Management AG

The initial projects of the new Comsoft direct Competence Center have been completed: "An Office 365 Hybrid Setup enables growth to both flexibly and simply take hold. No longer having to worry about resources and correct sizing before the integration of a new business unit allows us to efficiently and purposefully begin implementation. 
Having been thoroughly convinced by the integration of Office 365 through the Bechtle/Comsoft Office 365 Competence Center, we look forward to further collaboration in the development of our Cloud strategies."

Markus Strickler, Teamleader Core Infrastructure, Sonova Holding AG

All of our licenses are now easier to manage, and we have access to licensing experts to help us consolidate them."
