WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM SOFTWARE BROKER
When we founded this company, we didn’t think there had to be more purveyors of used software. But different ones! Ones who could handle a software transaction transparently, with seamless legal documentation, and the necessary level of trustworthiness. Enter software broker: We guarantee a wide variety of essential criteria for transferring standard software use rights. For instance, you can rely on us for:
Savings up to 50–70% compared to buying new software licences
Hand-in-glove cooperation with all levels of your organization
Absolute confidentiality regarding our mutual involvement in any transaction
Disclosure of all necessary legal documentation of transactions
If required, you can involve your own lawyers and auditors in every step of the way to ensure that your compliance and auditing requirements are fulfilled
This is our understanding of transparency, professionalism, customer satisfaction, and legal security.
BUYING AND SELLING USED SOFTWARE IS A MATTER OF TRUST
Thanks to years of experience in the used software market, we know that working with new partners requires a lot of trust. Our customers, small companies as well as large corporations, including several DAX members, especially value our commitment to finding solutions. One example for this is our flexible contract structure for buying software licences you no longer need. You can have their value paid out in cash or converted to partner credit, which you can use for goods or services from a partner of your choosing.
