Challenge: The Digital Revolution
The ever-faster technical development brought about by the digital revolution leaves even the most ambitious private user and the most successful entrepreneur to a state in which one loses overview of the current state of technology.
Topics such as the Internet of Things, virtual reality, cyber security, cloud solutions and enterprise data protection are a reality and must be taken into account when developing new products and processes.
But no matter where and how fast the digital revolution evolves – with techbold, you have a companion at your fingertips to implement your individual IT and computer projects. We are your partner on your way to a successful digital future. Our service portfolio ranges from networked home appliances, through all VR applications to the outsourcing of the entire IT infrastructure for companies.
The idea behind techbold
Techbold was founded 1.5 years ago by Damian Izdebski and Fabian Zeeb with the following idea:
Democratization of IT services
Large companies have both human and financial resources to keep their IT infrastructure on a modern and secure footing. SMEs with fewer than 100 employees are, however, often faced with major challenges.
As a digital companion, our goal is to make IT services of the highest quality available to the target group of small and medium-sized enterprises.
Closure of the market gap after DiTech bankruptcy
After the bankruptcy of the computer dealer DiTech a big gap arose on the Austrian market. Techbold has set itself the task of closing a part of this market gap, especially in two areas:
Operation of a computer center for hardware repairs and upgrades
Development and assembly of individual computers for gaming, virtual reality, and other professional applications
Trading in standard hardware and devices with low margins is not a priority, but it is operated to a small extent in order to achieve corresponding purchasing volumes from suppliers for components and spare parts and thus to lower the purchasing prices.
techbold´s achievements so far
Setting up a business center in Vienna
500 m2 office space, designed for a team of about 40 employees
A 350 m2 service center for sales, repairs and the assembly of computer systems, designed for approx. 15 employees
Programming of an on-line shop and an online configurator for individual PC systems
Cumulative turnover of almost 5 million euros
3,100 customers in the computer and service center
60 customers in the business customer segment, 50 of them with ongoing IT maintenance contracts

30-strong team of IT experts and computer pioneers
