Procurement supplier Tejari integrates online with Dubai SME
Procurement company Tejari, announced signing of a MoU with Dubai SME, the agency of the Department of Economic Development in Dubai mandated to develop the small and medium enterprise sector to deploy a dedicated eProcurement platform for SME members.
The collaboration aims to automate member requests, enable supplier categorisation and reporting capabilities through the BravoAdvantage Supplier Value Management capability. The platform will fully integrate with the eSupply and will act as a gateway for membership payment.
Marwan Al Naqi, Chairman at Tejari commented on the partnership saying. “The UAE is generally considered, and in particular the city of Dubai, one of the first to adopt the latest technology to build a better, improved life and development model. The vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai and the directives of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai is clear in Dubai’s transformation into a smart city to provide a new way of life based on creativity and innovation. There is an agreement that small and medium sized projects are now in many countries of the world, the most accurate measurement of the economy’s success.”
The announcement follows the successful automation of Dubai SME’s registration, pre-qualification and approval processes with the Government Procurement Programme. The programme, founded in 2011 was designed to enable SMEs to access contracting opportunities with government departments in the UAE. With the deployment of the new application all transactions among Dubai Government Departments will be consolidated on one unique platform ensuring all departments assign the agreed 5% of their purchasing spend to SME members.
Tejari operates as an integral part of the BravoSolution network with an exclusive focus on the Middle East and North Africa.
