We at pliXos – operating the B2B Marketplace for software service providers and customers – believe that it is very important for customers and service providers to be on the same page and have trust and common respect for each other.
Our B2B Marketplace extends our offering of SaaS tools covering the whole sourcing lifecycle “forward” by giving customers transparency on the global list of preselected providers, free of charge. The providers - which also can enter their profiles free of charge - are screened and they are listed according to their skills and the requirements requested by the respective customer during the search.
The pliXos benefit of the B2B Marketplace is the simple and easy entrance of both, customers and providers to the pliXos concept. This is empowered by the full integration and the cross selling potential to our other SaaS products. Our Marketplace is easy to access and the simple registration only requiring a few details. Once registered, a customer has the options to go through the list of service providers without the need to contact any service provider unless he wants to, e.g. for a dedicated project or tender. A unique and easy opportunity to test offshore/nearshore services.
Once registered, the service providers are able to fill in all the company details and skills as well as other details which will be visible to the customers. A unique opportunity to present oneself to new clients.
In addition to the B2B Marketplace which is free of charge to both, customers and providers, we offer consultancy plus acting as prime contractor for customers (running full projects with our provider base).
