“We have made a strong commitment to better serving our customers here, and to supporting the entire IT channel in Germany,” said Mark Banfield, Autotask Managing Director, International.  “Translating Autotask for the German market is just the first step.  We will shortly have an office in Frankfurt, and we have full sales and support resources available through our own staff and through our distribution partners.”

“We are very happy that we have discovered Autotask. It is the perfect solution for optimising and expanding our business, and for keeping track of the time spent solving customers’ issues.  In just one month we increased our billable time by more than 20%, and that was all with the English version.” said Maximilian Pfister, General Manager of niteflite networxx, GmbH, in Feldafing, Germany.  “Having Autotask available in German just opens up the market and makes it much easier for solution providers to manage their businesses and improve their services and transparency for their clients.”
