- Partner sales of the award-winning ERP platform from the cloud increasingly gaining momentum
Marburg, 24 September 2019 – weclapp SE, a subsidiary of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN: DE0005167902), had invited its sales partners to an information event in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, on 23 September 2019. Ertan Özdil, CEO of weclapp SE, gave an outlook on the future product, marketing and sales strategy. At the same time, the event also served to exchange and evaluate the experience gained since the start of the cooperation in March 2019. At the kick-off meeting, there were about 30 responsible persons from newly acquired partner companies, but this “1st weclapp Partners’ Day” brought together more than 60 representatives from IT system houses, IT consulting firms and IT service providers. Most of them already use weclapp in-house and now suggest weclapp to their customers as a cloud-based ERP platform and support them in implementation and operation. With more than 15%, IT service providers represent one of the larger customer groups of the weclapp ERP system.
Matthias Grdan, founder and managing director of Mate IT, Villingen-Schwenningen, has been using weclapp in his own company since 2016. For him, one thing is certain: “One of the great advantages of weclapp is the simple operation of a comprehensive and powerful ERP system. For our customers, regardless of whether they are active in e-bikes or thermal power stations or open a special workshop as a start-up company, it is clear that weclapp is the system of choice.” And Nils Kathagen from Systemhaus Ruhrgebiet, Witten, adds: “The presentations and Ertan Özdil’s vision were very motivating. Several of our customers are already testing weclapp now, but from the fourth quarter we will be increasingly addressing companies about weclapp and expect additional growth potential for our company.
“We will increasingly press ahead with market penetration in Germany. As expected, cooperation with our sales partners is now proving to be the right second sales channel in addition to the continued success of online marketing,” says Ertan Özdil, who is pleased to report that “with weclapp, our sales partners are offering a technologically advanced product at a reasonable price, and together we have noticed that medium-sized companies are increasingly taking advantage of this offer. We will increasingly use both sales models internationally in the future”.
