As a magazine for engineers, we are as passionate about innovative solutions as our readers. Especially if they are wallet-friendly as well. At usedSoft, we got Microsoft licences not only for a very small price but also fast and trouble-free.

Midi Europe - ISUZU, Cerea, Italia

Alessandro Bazzani, Director de TI

“Mi primer contacto con usedSoft tuvo lugar hace algunos años, cuando el mercado del software usado aún era joven. Aquella fue una experiencia muy positiva y me alegro de poder continuar ahora esa relación. En la actualidad soy Director de TI de Midi Europe, una empresa importadora de vehículos industriales ISUZU a Europa. El desarrollo de la empresa y la necesidad de adquirir software actualizado plantearon como requisito la realización de amplias inversiones. Tras un análisis de carácter técnico y legal, decidimos renovar nuestro software de oficina con ayuda de usedSoft. De ese modo pudimos ahorrar entre un 40 y un 50 % en gastos de compra sin tener que obtener por ello productos de menor calidad. La posibilidad de comprar licencias individuales en lugar de los paquetes con volumen fijo ofrecidos por otros comerciantes ha hecho posible que podamos organizar a medida nuestro inventario de productos de cliente-servidor.”

Bruhin Klass AG, CH-Zug

Roland Bruhin, Lawyer

“The software market has long been dominated by monopolies. The fact that the used software business undertaken by UsedSoft has created more competition can only be welcomed. As independent legal practitioners, we know what the underlying law is. There can be no objection to the resale of software that has been originally sold by the author. The trade in software already in circulation is legal according to Article 12 of the Swiss Copyright Act – no matter what the software manufacturer has to say about it. The cantonal court in Zug has already made this clear.”

Cosmética de Hildegard Braukmann

Rudolf Kotulla, Director de TI

Como empresa de cosmética, ofrecemos a nuestros clientes productos en cuya calidad puedan confiar. También esperamos eso cuando adquirimos un producto en calidad de cliente. En el caso de usedSoft no nos sentimos defraudados: con la compra de licencias de software usado hemos obtenido la misma calidad que con las de nueva adquisición pero, sin embargo, con unas condiciones claramente más ventajosas. El asesoramiento y la realización por parte de usedSoft fueron rápidos y sin problemas. Una inversión provechosa que podemos recomendar.

Clinica Bad Oexen

La Clínica Bad Oexen es una clínica especializada en la rehabilitación oncológica. En el proceso de modernización y ampliación de nuestras estructuras para los clientes, hemos decidido, por primera vez, adquirir el software necesario en el mercado de segunda mano. Las ventajas económicas nos han convencido. Tras haberlo estudiado detalladamente, la decisión del proveedor recayó en usedSoft. El asesoramiento fue competente, la entrega rápida y la emisión de la factura transparente. ¡Estamos muy satisfechos y no lamentamos nuestra decisión!

Schierle Stahlrohre KG, D-Neuss

Erwin & Melanie Schierle

„Our decision to opt for usedSoft licences was certainly based on business management reasons. As a medium-sized company we are confronted with a more and more increasing competition day by day. In this regard, there is no excuse for the major software developers to avoid such competition by forming monopolistic cartels. It's high time for a liberalisation of the software market. We caused our lawyers to thoroughly check the lawfulness of usedSoft's business model. There was a clear result: The trade with used software is lawful. Any contradictory allegations made by Microsoft and Co. are nothing but pure intimidations which we will not accept as German medium-sized business entrepreneurs. Apart from that, we do not see any reason to pay more for software than absolutely necessary."

Terminal 2 Betriebsgesellschaft

Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Uwe Winkler, Information Technology Instructor

„We wanted to increase the number of licences for software that we were already using and were looking for possible suppliers. For our request to usedSoft we simply filled in the appropriate data in the internet form on their homepage and received an offer by email within just a few days. And it was an offer that was noticeably lower than the price we would have had to pay for new licences. Next time we expand our computer systems, we will definitely ask for a comparative offer from usedSoft.“

ANYBET GmbH, D-Hamburg

Michael Kuhnke, Managing Director

„On the used software market, there are – like in any other branches – reliable and less reliable suppliers. Unfortunately, I had to make some bad experiences with competitors of usedSoft in the past: they promised a lot, but they could neither supply completely nor in time. usedSoft has proven that used software does not exclude a 100 % reliability at all: the perfect customer dialogue, the continuously reliable supply and, of course, savings of 50 % have completely convinced us! The next order has already been placed."

Law Firm Brinkmann & Partner, D-Berlin

Hartwig Albers, Attorney at Law

„As one of the largest liquidating law offices within Germany we are of course focussing our particular interest on the sale of used software licences in particular, in connection with the company usedSoft - and this subject will become even more important to us in future. The reason why we have recently bought used licences for our law firm from this company ourselves was mainly based on the enormous savings potential of about 40 % from which we could benefit this way. Moreover, we were more than satisfied by the reliable and skilled business conduct of the company usedSoft convincing us that we have found a suitable partner regarding software for us.“

Business Angel Venture GmbH, D-Cologne

Martin Heinemann, Managing Director

„In general, the trade with 'used’ software is not only an exciting business model, but also an offer which may provide financial benefits for companies: We, for example, could save almost 40 percent when our purchase was made although we needed a relatively up-dated software.

All our questions, including questions regarding any legal aspects, were answered to our best satisfaction. We feel that usedSoft takes competent care of us in each respect. Therefore, we would like to recommend useSoft to others, and when effecting our next purchase, we will certainly purchase 'used’ licences again, as software - in comparison to most other goods - is not affected by any wear...“

WIDI – Wirtschaftsdienste Hellersen GmbH, D-Lüdenscheid

Johannes Wittenbrink, Managing Director

"„We, the team of Wirtschaftsdienste Hellersen GmbH, feel that it is our task to make a contribution to the reduction of health care costs. We reach this goal by offering not only full textile supply to hospitals and old people's homes, but also by providing numerous specific services at fair prices in addition.

Therefore, cost awareness has always been an important subject to us. For this reason, the idea to buy used software at a price of up to 50 percent less than the new price has immediately enthused us! And with usedSoft we have found a supplier being reliable in every respect and able to deliver within the agreed time.

"In particular, clinics, hospitals and old people's homes are presently standing under a tremendous pressure to reduce costs: We are glad that we are able - last but not least due to used software as well - to offer our services at favourable prices. So that health remains affordable.“

Henry Taubald, Chief Operations Officer

„Anyone who wants to be successful in trade needs a keen sense of where purchases can be realized economically. Therefore, a true businessman can scarcely overlook the unique savings potential that the second-hand software market, and in particular usedSoft, offers. Especially now that the German courts, from a legal point of view, have established a broad and solid basis for trading second-hand software licenses. As a satisfied usedSoft customer for many years, I will continue to buy second-hand software in future, whenever possible.“

WEIT Führung GmbH, D-Chemnitz

Heiko Weit, Geschäftsführer

„The excellent quality of consulting services and the considerable price advantages offered by the software second-hand market was a highly welcome surprise. Due to the excellent consulting services provided by usedSoft based on which we could avoid a not only expensive but also unnecessary overlicensing, we were able to benefit from considerable savings. The final price amounting to almost 70 % below our planned budget was really impressive. Due to such savings, we are now able to speed up other IT-investments.

Due to the solution provided by usedSoft which perfectly matches with the needs of our company we are now able to support our own customers in an even more efficient way to increase the labour productivity of their companies by at least 20 % within a period of 12 months.“

Walther Technik GmbH & Co. KG

At our company, we place just as much value on innovation as we do on cost awareness. That's why usedSoft was our first choice when it came to procuring software: With usedSoft, we were able to obtain current technology at unbeatably economical prices. In light of the legal circumstances now being clear-cut, we had no reservations about purchasing used software.
The entire experience was uncomplicated and effortless. We are thoroughly satisfied with usedSoft!

EHI Retail Institute

Michael Gerling, CEO

“The EHI Retail Institute has more than 500 members from all sectors of trade. Procurement is a central issue for all of these businesses. Thus, it is no coincidence that trading companies were among the first ever customers of second-hand software dealers. Back then, several of our members called our attention to the tremendous savings potential of up to 50%. Since we consider integrity and reliability absolutely essential, we have been working with usedSoft from the beginning – and we never ever had any regrets about this cooperation, neither with regard to purchase transactions nor sales transactions. Now, you will find various EHI members among the customers of usedSoft – and the trend is clearly upward.“

Hansestadt Stralsund

Gabriele Leesch, IT Department Director

As a municipal authority, it is our duty to save costs whenever it is sensible and feasible to do so. One example here would be when purchasing software. The used software market not only offers enormous saving potential, it also provides the same quality as newly purchased products. After all, software does not wear out. That is why we chose usedSoft, which was well under the new software price. The process was uncomplicated and expedient. Therefore, we can sincerely recommend the used software market and usedSoft to other government authorities as well.

Wolfgang Will, Head of Shared Service

„For quite some time we have been observing the development of the used software market with great interest. The savings potentials offered by the second-hand market are most interesting for government agencies and local authorities. In any case, we as town are obligated to comply with the principle of cost-effectiveness under public procurement law and to opt for the most favorable supplier. And, after all, we can invest every Euro which we do not spend for software equipment into other projects - and, as a rule, it is rather needed for such other projects. In this regard, the purchase of usedSoft licences did not differ from buying new licences at all: it was uncomplicated and delivery was made very quickly.“

Deutsche Akademie für Fernsehen

Michael Brandner, Member of the Board – Performing Arts

As the executive board we represent the interests of our members. This also means reflecting upon our expenses with greater care and being cost-conscious. Just for that reason I find the business idea of usedSoft exceedingly clever: Why must we pay more for something that is available just as well at a reduced rate? We could also ask: Why retain something after it is no longer needed?

usedSoft had first applied this principle of “sustainability” to the software branch. That a small German company gave this impetus and thereby revolutionized the market is really an extraordinary accomplishment. It shows that creativity and courage pay off in the truest sense – and in particular not just in the film and media sector.

Public Services of Witten

Andreas Schade, Head of the EDP and Adminstration Department

„We opted for the used software market for two reasons: on the one hand, we wanted to save costs, of course, on the other hand, we were not satisfied with the consulting services provided by the major software suppliers at all. Finally, one of our business partners made us aware of usedSoft which convinced us not only due to its impressive customer list.

usedSoft is clearly a convincing alternative to us in comparison to initial purchase: a quick and unproblematic winding-up, tried-and-tested programs proven to be reliable, and savings of almost 40 % compared to the initial purchase. Last but not least, being comfortable to know that we were provided with a lawful licensing. The crowning achievement was that we were even able to refinance a part of our investment by selling old licences which were no longer needed to usedSoft.“

SRH Gesundheitszentrum Bad Wimpfen GmbH, D-Bad Wimpfen

Hendrik Hamm, System technology

„We had to increase our stock of Office 2003 Professional licences by a significant number of licences. It was therefore clear to us from the very beginning which kind of software we needed. Thus, we could focus our interest on chosing the most favourable supplier when buying it. This was definitely usedSoft: In contrast to buying new licences, we could make a saving of 50 percent. The cost advantage relating to "used" licences is more than obvious. In addition, usedSoft's offer was not only unrivaledly favourable, but usedSoft was the only used software supplier being able to immediately supply such licences.

Due to usedSoft's competent service, we feel being in good hands with usedSoft. usedSoft's order processing is transparent and reliable.“
