The supplier portal provides entrepreneurs with interaction with government customers, as well as helps to find business partners through a single purchase showcase.
For seven months of this year, 970 B2B deals were concluded on the Moscow supplier portal. Their potential volume amounted to more than 165 million rubles. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov.
“Commercial customers have the right not to indicate the initial purchase price if they do not know its real cost, and the maximum amount of a placed order is limited to a million rubles. Loyal conditions allow representatives of small and medium-sized businesses to participate in purchases. This is more than 90 percent of active portal users. The average contract price based on the procurement procedures in January-July amounted to about 170 thousand rubles, ”he said.
The supplier portal provides entrepreneurs with interaction not only with government customers, but also helps to search for business partners through a single purchase showcase. Access to the B2B format allows small businesses to work with large market players.
“Technological solutions on the portal allow you to quickly connect external B2B platforms, which helps to further increase the volume of transactions between companies. The existing portal tools are widely used and are also scalable for new user requests. For example, the mailing list subscription service takes into account new connections and invites suppliers to B2B purchases, taking into account the company’s profile, “said the Minister of the Moscow Government, head Information Technology Department Eduard Lysenko…
Users have access to all the functionality of the platform, including access to the largest marketplaces. A single purchase showcase and a targeted mailing system with notifications of published auctions allow suppliers to participate in public procurement and conduct B2B transactions as soon as possible.
“Commercial organizations were able to post their purchases on the supplier portal in July 2019. Since then, about 1.5 thousand B2B transactions with a potential volume of more than 200 million rubles have been made with the help of the resource, ”said the head
He also added that the most popular goods and services this year were computer, optical and electronic equipment, information technology goods, communications, office equipment, electronics, as well as furniture and plastic and rubber products. Since the beginning of the year, more than 350 thousand standard trade items have been added to the product catalog.
The Supplier Portal was created in 2013 to automate low volume procurement procedures. The Internet resource helps to increase the competition of potential suppliers, makes it possible to objectively assess the existing market for offers and analyze information on the fulfillment of obligations. Every day more than a thousand contracts are concluded on the portal, and the catalog of unique goods, works and services contains over 700 thousand items. More than 184 thousand suppliers work with the resource.
