Our e-sourcing and business applications are used by more than 100,000 users in over 70 countries around the world. Being predominantly business tools, people tend to access them from desktop computers and laptops and so we’ve always focused on creating a feature-rich experience, fine-tuned for all of the major desktop browsers.

 

However, people are becoming increasingly mobile, not just in their personal lives but also in their business interactions. And with latest research indicating there are over 1.2 billion mobile web users worldwide, it is impossible to ignore the mobile phone as a method of interacting with websites.

Introducing a clean, responsive, mobile-friendly CF Suite.

Our applications have always been functional on mobile devices, but with the latest update we have completely overhauled the interface with a mobile-first design approach. The first phase of this momentous task is to tackle the participant portal area – probably the most essential to be accessible from a mobile device.

Suppliers can now do all of this easily from their smartphone and tablets:

  • Register interest
  • Update and maintain company and contact information
  • Respond to tenders
  • Bid in e-auctions
  • Respond to contract approval requests
  • Complete questionnaires and review performance
  • Send emails and chat messages

(Basically, anything they could do before – we have just made the process much easier for mobile users!)

The new interface platform will be rolled out to all participant screens by early 2016, and by then we will already be working on the new interface for all areas of CF Suite.
