NEW: Realise your IT projects with ITscope

There is good news for all system integrators who regularly realise IT projects at special manufacturer conditions for big customers: This type of projects — e.g. for communities, hospitals, public corporations or “campus” target groups — can now also be effected through ITscope. Orders at project prices can be placed via the web interface as well as from within ERP systems via the ITscope API.

In doing so, we have extended out platform by another important procurement use case for system vendors. The benefit is: Project demand is ordered electronically via ITscope and project prices are imported directly into your own ERP system via our API. The latter is usually not possible when purchasing at distributor online shops, thus interrupting data flow and making manual transfer necessary. Moreover, orders need to be placed one by one in several distributor shops. ITscope lets you purchase your project articles from several suppliers all in one place.

Enable your project lists, steady, go.

In order to handle projects at special manufacturer conditions in ITscope, you simply have to send an informal activation request for project lists to the distributor. After entering your FTP login data with the respective supplier, you will be able to see your project prices for each projected article in ITscope.

“It is a great simplification for us to see the project lists from the distribution directly in ITscope. This helps us to get an instant overview by project article, which supplier has how many projected items left and who gives the best price for it.

Michael Ruttmann from NCS Netzwerke Computer Service

You can order project articles from your project lists in ITscope the same way you do for articles at list prices or individual conditions: add to cart, send order, done.

ALSO and Tech Data have already been integrated

The first suppliers to integrate project lists in ITscope have been ALSO and Tech Data. Both distributors have been selling through ITscope for around 10 years already and now enable handling of projects directly through ITscope. Since both companies are connected via EDI, customers may enjoy various additional features like electronic document exchange, dropshipment, or electronic dispatch of ESD licenses. More suppliers to implement project business in ITscope will be activated successively.

More info

For further information on how to set up project lists, please consult our help page. For any other questions that you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact us at support [at] itscope.com.

Order documents now available for download in ITscope

Many of our customers have asked for it, now we have implemented them: Order documents like purchase orders, order responses, invoices, and deliver notes can now be downloaded for each order as PDF and XML files. This features is available as of now via web interface and API.

Documents related to your orders in ITscope can be viewed and saved in the transactions history of the respective order and may be downloaded seperately or bundled as a zip file, allowing for clean documentation and insight into important order details at any time. Thanks to the XML download in openTRANS, all documents can also be imported into your ERP system.

A fresh breeze for purchasing managers: five new distributors listed in ITscope

15 Years ITscope, 15 Years of Channel

ITscope2006
left to right.: Benjamin Mund, Stefan Reger and Alexander Münkel 2006

15 years ITscope… that’s a long time. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the past 1.5 decades: on our own development, but also on the challenges and innovations the Channel has seen. We would like to thank you — our customers, partners and companions — for 15 exciting years, review the most important milestones of the industry, reflect on changes at ITscope — and give you an overview of the future of our platform.

It all began in the ‘millenium summer’ of 2003: we, i.e. Alexander Münkel, Benjamin Mund and Stefan Reger, gathered at the open air bath of Bruchsal, Germany, to write the business plan for a company that should influence the ICT industry sustainably: ITscope was born, and we started operations beginning of November in Karlsdorf-Neuthard, Germany.

StefanReger
Stefan Reger, co-founder of ITscope

We had collected some experience in hardware commerce with our TFT shop Panelty.de before and realised there is a problem that was longing for a technical solution:

“Price lists used to have the most chaotic formats at that time. Some suppliers even sent them by fax. Benjamin Mund and I had been in the middle of our Information Technology studies and were convinced: we can make this simpler!”

 

 

Only few of you will remember our first tool: yes, there has been a V1.0 of the ITscope MarketViewer, and it launched in 2005. 😉 We even sent out CDs with a 200MB database containing 200,000 products from 119 suppliers. This is how it looked like:

MV
The ITscope MarketViewer was partly sent out on CD back in the ISDN times of 2005

A smart marketing move? Or sudden death for ITscope?

ChannelPartnerTitelseie
Source: ChannelPartner 45/2005

It was end of 2005 when our small business experienced unexpected acceleration: our product caught the attention of Alexander Roth form ChannelPartner. We exchanged a few words on the phone only and had never expected neither the headline nor the hype that was following promptly after his article ‘Distis ausspioniert’ [editor’s note: German for ‘Distributors spied on’] about the MarketViewer was published:

One week later, we had 250 new signups and a few warning letters in our mailbox. 😱

AlexanderMünkel
Alexander Münkel, co-founder of ITscope

“Two distributors were instantly removed from the MarketViewer. We have clarified that we have always handled individual prices as strictly confidential and that they can only be seen by the respective reseller. That helped easing the flurry relatively quick. Some even congratulated us for a ‘perfect market entry’  — and we were able to push our vision further.”

“Geiz ist geil” threatened the Channel

The price transparency movement — simply consider the “Geiz ist geil” campaign [editor’s note: German for “Stinginess is sexy”] from 2002 — was the latest B2C trend, making it even harder for ICT resellers to survive on ebbing margins.

BenjaminMund
Benjamin Mund, co-founder of ITscope

It became virtually impossible to compensate service by hardware profit. This is why at ITscope, we pursued two objectives from the very beginning:

first, better margins for our resellers thanks to better purchasing conditions and second, more time for customer care thanks to automation.

From 2007, we therefore built export and API features, e.g. for automatic product creation in ERP systems, and integrated content data from CNET as well as Icecat. First official interfaces to channel ERP systems like Mention and c-entron were available from 2008. Today, more than 15 ERP systems are connected out-of-the-box.

MarketViewer 3 — and other dead ends

Why do we fall? — So we learn how to lift ourselves up again. 😉

It was a great time, back then in 2009. Especially the CeBIT part. We introduced its.shop and MarketViewer 3, too. Unfortunately, both products were based on platforms that were not technologically sustainable. This is why we had to say goodbye to both MarketViewer 3 and its.shop in the end.

Leap into the cloud, EDI for the Channel

ITscope.com Beta: screenshot from 2012

2011 standen wir dann am Scheideweg: Weiterwursteln oder neue Wege beschreiten? Wir machten einen klaren Schnitt und trennten uns von unserem langjährigen Investor, der DCI AG. Das kostete Kraft, doch wir konnten auf ein Netzwerk aus juristischer und wirtschaftlicher Beratung zurückgreifen, das uns durch diese schwierige Zeit begleitet hat. Heute sind wir stolz darauf, wieder ein gründerfinanziertes und inhabergeführtes Unternehmen zu sein!

2011 was a crossroad year for us: continue the same way, or risk to discover new trails? Eventually, we made a clear cut and at the same time separated from our longtime investor DCI AG. This sapped much of our energy, but thankfully, we had legal and advisory backup in our network, who had helped us through these rough times. Today, we are proud to be a founder-funded, owner-managed company.

On the technology side, we ventured a comeback based on a new-from-scratch, entirely browser-based solution: away from the client, and right into the cloud. In Vaadin, we found a Java framework that united lightweight web applications and a powerful ReST API, and provided us with a solid basis for further development. Since then, we have extended our platform step by step in iterative development processes.

Standing still was no option: we began to realise automatic order processes — so-called EDI integrations — in 2013. Today, 40 distributors, among which are ALSO, api, Ingram Micro, KOMSA and Tech Data, are connected to ITscope by EDI. This provides significant benefits for all entities involved in the order process: less cost, faster handling, better deliverability. It is our aim to further extend this feature continuously.

New: digital solutions to unite sales and procurement processes

One thing is for sure: There is still massive potential for system integrators in relation to sales. In 2016, we made a first step with interactive live online quotes. No more tedious document ping-pong — the future is digital, direct and without media interruptions. We are now opening up a new chapter with our B2B Suite and, analogous to producement,  transfer our customers’ sales process into the cloud. We have re-imagined sales in collaboration with some of you — our customers: sales without shop systems or conventional quotes.

Custom tailored B2B Shops let system vendors digitise their sales.

In a nutshell, B2B Shops gives all system integrators the opportunity to provide their own customers with individually tailored shopping environments that route customer orders to the distribution automatically. First customers are already using our new solution.

André Nösse from Nösse Datentechnik explains:

“We have tried to find a new, innovative way to make IT purchasing of one of our major clients better and faster. Soon we realised that the features we use in ITscope are exactly those that we would like to give to our customers.”

We are very proud of this solution indeed: system integrators are able to invite their clients into a closed shopping area that is easy to integrate into their clients’ procurement systems and lets them purchase upon click.

“It is incredibly easy to set up a customer shop with ITscope. In a few minutes only, everything is ready to sell, from product range and selection of suppliers, over margin rules to individual logo and design of our customer. Our sales staff doesn’t even have to ask someone from IT for help.”

 

Sneak peek into the future…

ITscope team in October 2018: The company is scouting for new colleagues to support its future growth

We will continue to work hard so that digitalisation will work for YOU, too: with easy to implement, efficient and practicable solutions for your everyday challenges. This is why we would like to make our new sales solution available to everybody as soon as possible.

We are moreover dedicated to push forward features for our international clients. This is why we have already integrated more than 40 suppliers from all across Europe. Full procurement in several foreign currencies is on top of our roadmap for 2019.

v.l.n.r.: Natalie Stößer, Taha Aktas, Alexander Münkel

Much more is to come, and we are full of ideas. 😊 This is why we continuously look for new fellows, especially in the domains of Java development, sales and marketing.

In parallel, we also support young talents and offer trainings. This is why we are overly excited that 23-year-old Taha Aktas, one of our talents, has just been awarded Best Informatics Trainee of Baden-Württemberg.

Taha, we are proud of you! 🎉

Quo Vadis, Channel? — Voices & comments from the industry

In being an anchor point for the ICT industry, we are regularly in mutual exchange with companies from the Channel. For our 15th birthday, we asked a few longtime customers and partners: What will be next? What is it that will be shaping the channel? — Here are their answers:

“While companies in the enterprise sector will continue another while to run their own data centers, the trend among SMEs is straight towards the cloud. In the fields of servers, we will moreover continue to be engaged in the ‘big data’ topic. As our clients produce more and more data that is to be processed, their infrastructure needs to grow simultaneously.”

— Firat Güney, CEO of Happyware Server Europe GmbH

“The ICT industry has significantly changed during the past 15 years. Seen as ‘machine movers’ in the past, system vendors have transformed into holistic service providers who offer 360° services to their customers. There have also been shifts on the client side: companies nowadays regard IT as strategic competitive advantage, rather than a cost block. Moreover, security thinking has remarkably improved with regards to data management. It will be crucial for the success of the industry to say goodbye to isolated systems and move on to comprehensive, integrating strategies.

— Andreas Schober, CEO of aconitas GmbH

“The Consolidation process among system houses will move on. Smaller system vendors will yet continue to be successful if they specialise and build on monthly gross yield. Automated accounting of cloud and managed services with Systemhaus.One is already important today and will gain even more importance in the future.”

— Thomas Neumeier, CEO of neumeierAG

“One of the milestones in the past 15 years has surely been the shift towards drop shipment. Today, all procedures are much more process-oriented, so stocking up like in former years has become irrelevant. Also, the paradigm of integration has very much established, both on the business and the technology level. Especially ITscope has helped us here. Thanks to their integration into our ERP system, our sales and purchasing teams can collaborate in the best way possible, accelerating our business processes significantly.”

— André Nösse, CEO of Nösse Datentechnik GmbH & Co. KG
