CM|XS Suite

The future of Tendering Management is here.

In continuity with its route towards the innovation of the company’s products, FBK is proud to present the new brand and logo CM|XS Suite for its Tender Management solutions, that will be operational since the month of November 2018.

Contract Manager eXtensibility System

Since FBK started to operate effectively in the market much water has passed under the bridge and many things have happened, starting with the constant evolution of Tender&Offer scenario, which has moved over the years from local to a global approach, enabling customers and professionals to consistently monitor the dynamic purchasing trend of the payers.

This evolution mentioned above also coincided with a re-statement of the internal Tenders & Offers processes, where, beyond the standard tender office activity other company areas are involved, as the sales department, pricing controllers and other strategic resources. FBK has closely followed these changes and partially encouraged them, as projecting new components able to bring greater added value within the end-to-end process.

When further necessities came forward along the tender journey, as of this moment we decided to make our platform forceful in order to face new market challenges, and to properly respond to those issues we have invented CM|XS (Contract Manager eXtensibility System) a powerful platform that includes many different features perfectly adjustable for various operators and users, where each of them, as part of the same process within a next-generation partnership, shall find any ad-hoc solution to their specific needs and requirements.
