What is Backoffice?

Whether you are part of a ten-person start-up CRO or a multimillion-dollar CRO, it’s costly and difficult to find research customers. Backoffice is part of a new and unique marketing channel that helps you establish new customer relationships and expand existing ones. It is a simple web-based application that enables you to advertise your services and products on the desktop of thousands of researchers and communicate directly with potential customers.

Why Use Backoffice?

Backoffice makes it easy for you to find new customers. From one central hub you can create your service and product advertisements, communicate with potential customers, respond to quote requests and much more. Backoffice is a new and efficient way to reach the desktop of thousands of laboratory researchers, research managers and procurement specialists.
