Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are now in a position to get their SW-projects implemented in time, in quality and at low costs. pliXos just launched its new B2B marketplace for SW services at www.plixos.com/market - at no costs for users.
In particular SMEs benefit from the transparency concerning the global offering of SW service providers fitting their needs. In addition all phases of typical SW projects can be optimised by the pliXos Software as a Service (SaaS) tools. Projects are delivered in quality, budget and time. If you are a small or medium enterprise (SME) looking for an easy, fast and safe way to award your software development projects? There is a new solution. pliXos has just launched its new marketplace for SW services. A special focus is given to SMEs to benefit from a tool to search a global pool of SW service providers, to issue tenders for SW projects and finally award them to a specific one..
The design and conceptual phases were supported by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology. The marketplace was realized based on feedback by numerous customers as well as sourcing experts and it is expected that many potential buyers, especially in the SME domain as well as a huge amount of SW service providers will benefit. Besides the option to search for service providers, administration of favorite providers or issuing tenders or awarding of projects, customers can build upon numerous valuable features. Those include calculation of their individual outsourcing business case or the governance of their project success after award to a provider through the pliXos SaaS toolset..
Dr. Joerg Stimmer, Managing Director of pliXos explains: „We are convinced that our new marketplace will be well appreciated by users, especially SMEs. Large enterprises have already been experiencing the advantages of international sourcing; we think SMEs should do likewise. I am pleased that our offering will be one option to overcome the skills shortage in IT-expertise in Germany“..
For pliXos this is a further step to expand the online product portfolio, thereby ensuring the know-how-transfer in industrialized SW development to SMEs. Most features are available at no cost. Only selected additional functionality will be charged in form of Software as a Service - SaaS. Examples are calculating an individual and detailed business case or the governance of ongoing projects. Customers in demand for further support have the option to get this in form of the pliXos offering Sourcing Advisory as a Service – SAaaS®..
pliXos sees itself as a provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for the optimization of globally distributed software services. Significant cost and time advantages are implemented by using these solutions based on best-practices processes. Offers of pliXos are "tool-assisted" evaluation and analysis of global sourcing projects, the optimized control of such projects as well as consulting and the assumption of overall responsibility for individual projects. pliXos was founded in April 2009. Investors include the High-Tech Gruenderfonds, Bayern Kapital and private investors.
