pliXos raises seed capital for global sourcing service

Seed funding

High-Tech Gründerfonds and Bayern Kapital have provided seed financing for pliXos GmbH, which is developing a system for managing the global sourcing of IT projects. The platform allows for quality assurance and the control of third-party software and IT services.

pliXos provides the system on a software-as-a-service basis, reducing capital investment and operating costs. A further advantage of the pliXos platform is the top down approach, which allows the control of service provision from the point of view of the chief information officer. Software-as-a-Service provides for the flexible use of the system beyond the boundaries of the organisation.

Rosi Keimerl, Senior Holding Manager at Bayern Kapital, said, “With its Global Sourcing Platform, pliXos enables every company to participate in the benefits of global sourcing without a need for long-term and complex learning cycles, or purchasing very expensive consulting services.”
