Advantages of FBK SaaS offer

Affordable

Our SaaS is accessible with a price that includes upgrades, maintenance and various support levels. No Frills, no surprise.

Quick to Deploy

With our SaaS solutions, all you need is a web browser and internet access, and you're ready to go. Whereas traditional software can take weeks or even months to deploy, our SaaS solutions simply requires an add-in to be installed, then you are able to access your new software immediately.

Zero Infrastructure

When delivering business applications via SaaS, we take care of all the complexity of the underlying IT infrastructure. Your Company does not need to worry about hardware maintenance or obsolescence, or which operating system version is needed to support your database. And this is true for all the technology stack that you daily use.

Seamless Upgrades

We will take care of the software updates and upgrades in order for you to be freed of installing or downloading patches. We can assure that at any time you will have the most up-to-date software.

Backups and Data Recovery all done for you

If you are familiar with traditional software, you certainly know that unless a costly automated solution has been implemented, the process of backing up your data on a reasonable plan can be arduous at the best of times. Our SaaS solutions avoid the need for this painstaking task, instigating automatic backups without user’s intervention and thus ensuring your data integrity.

Guaranteed Service Levels

With most traditional software programs, product performances are not guaranteed, but with SaaS they are. For instance, FBK guarantees that your applications will be available 99.5% of the time.

Long Term Customer Relationship

This is the fundamental point for Saas Supplier.

We need time to take into account both sales and marketing costs of acquiring a new customer and the money we have spent on the infrastructure, without making any profit in the first period of the relationship. So it's very important that our costumer will be satisfy with the service provided, and that will stay with us for many years to come. Short term is SaaS enemy!

Work Anywhere

With an internet connection, our SaaS solutions can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Users can access their data and work more efficiently from anywhere, making life easier for home-workers or for people working across multiple sites. And with the same security level.

High Adoption Rates

As SaaS solutions are delivered over the internet, there is no need of adding virtual learning involved with adopting new solutions, since employees are for sure used to work on the internet.

About Us

Everything you need to know about our Company

FBK is one of the principal software solution’s provider to Manufacturers, Suppliers, Vendors and Resellers for the Tender Management within the Life Sciences and Health Care industry. FBK is a privately held company with head offices in Milan/Italy, and beyond ISO 9001:2015 certification, in November 2018 FBK has achieved Service Organization Control (Soc) 2 Type II Report, specifically designed for service providers using the cloud to store customer data, referred to the five Trust Services Principles (TSP), Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy. The total business managed through FBK systems is currently over $6 bn.

The company was established in 1996 starting with the Meeting Manager product, successively followed by the introduction of the Tender Management solution, and has built an extensive expertise in providing and integrating Enterprise level software.

Partnering with many of the largest multinational companies has meant the developing of such an important know how through the years, in the direction to become the reference company for the Tender Management system.

FBK is actually providing its services in more than 30 countries worldwide.

In 2006 the company made a conscious decision to shift focus from the local to the global market establishing a new orientation that put Multinationals as reference customers. A research program of European requirements was started, building an essential knowledge base of the issues that Life Science companies face across Europe. Development focus moved to covering pan-European needs while at the same time the commercial activities focused on understanding and meeting Multinational customer needs. Since then FBK has proven the ability to integrate both from a Software, Compliance, Methodology and a Project Management standpoint with the market leaders in the Medical Device, Diagnostic and Pharmaceutical markets.

The year 2007, with the first of several international Tender Management projects, has marked a significant change in our customer strategies, and has consolidated and marketed different countries business onto a single Tender Management platform. This was possible only through a Tool that could guarantee legal compliance, best practices and methodologies appointed at a National level.

In 2008 FBK sought and obtained ISO 9001 certification. DNV-GL (www.dnv.com) was chosen as one of the world’s leading certification Bodies, as a guarantee for our customers.

In 2010 FBK has started several partnerships with other international companies having a keen interest in adding FBK solutions to their internal systems, and the subsequent period was defined by the expansion and consolidation of FBK products over a wider market footprint, with a more varied and complete coverage of business sectors.

In 2015 FBK introduced to the market its SaaS platform (fbsys.com), which can significantly speed up the deployment of Multi-Country solutions, and has started being active in extra-EMEA contexts.

In 2016 FBK launched the new release of CM|XS Mobile component, that helps Customers dramatically increase the integration between the BackOffice activities and Sales Force.

In 2017 FBK released the 1.0 version of CM|XS DataMart. This module provides new Analytic instruments and tools, and adds strong value to CM (Contract Manager), allowing users to achieve millions of data rows in real time through an integrated and transparent system, avoiding the support of external information.

In 2018 FBK launched CM|XS Reporting module as part of Contract Manager modular suite, a cloud solution designed to address the needs for any kind of reports, accessible from all last-generation browser supporting html 5, provides data-export in various formats and in any context, with multi selection filters available. CM|XS Reporting delivers tons of data with a single click on your keypad, thanks to the use of Exasol, the world‘s fastest in-memory database.

During the first half of 2018 FBK has further strengthened its position within the EMEA countries, in particular concerning East and Middle East areas. FBK plans to add new countries in its portfolio by the end of the year 2018.

During the month of November 2018 FBK has changed the historical label Contract Manager with the new brand CM|XS Suite, the next-generation platform for Tender Management featuring dozens of OUT OF THE BOX functionalities, able to respond to any kind of requirements, for any type of customer, in any moment.

Contract Manager eXtensibility System


As full acknowledgement of its top level of quality, in November 2018 FBK achieved Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II Report. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 is specifically designed for service providers using the cloud to store customer data, referred to the five Trust Services Principles (TSP), Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy. SOC 2 provides an independent assurance that FBK cloud platform fbsys.com is safe and secure, and the entire FBK organization carries out the whole process of designing, modifying and supporting activities in a proven and safe manner. Another significant milestone for our Company.

The new year, 2019, confirms in particular the positive trend of our SaaS solutions from the market, a major breakthrough that brings real advantages to the Customer thanks to many critical success factors as the combination of quality and affordability plus the versatility of application and use, avoiding any infrastructure or hardware maintenance.

During the month of May FBK has released the new exciting module Bands and Tiers Threshold Management in response to specific market demands such as UK and Canada, that features the fundamental opportunity to define the pricing by lot and by bands within the bids framework, gaining absolute and efficient ways to manage the pricing management throughout the purchasing process.

With this innovative tool FBK once again shows strong capacity and intense effort in implementing new solutions for its Customers.

Between May and June several country installations have been launched or upgraded, specifically in the United States and Canada, as well as in the UK and the European Nordic countries.

In the meantime new projects are in progress, scheduled for the delivering in the second half of the year.

On July 15th FBK moved its Head Quarter to the new location of Viale del Ghisallo 20 nearby the well-known green area of San Siro, doubling the size of the office space with wise arrangements and availability, to properly welcome new specialists that will join FBK in a short time and in the next future.

A significant breakthrough happened on July 24th 2019, when the company changed the corporate name into FBK. This innovation has been primarily taken to meet the common mode of calling us FBK, especially from our international customers, that have always found this designation more easier and immediate. Also not less important, with the new corporate name FBK initiates an exponential growth phase, that will see a constant growing of internal resources over the medium term, and the launch of new applications that will be presented within the current year.
