One of the curved arrows represents the supplier cluster and the other the GMR enterprise.
The curved arrows encircle each other symbolizing collaborative relationship between
the stake holders. This relationship is further augmented by SM`ART, which
is portrayed by to & fro arrows on either side.
SM`ART stands for Supply Management Adaptive & Responsive Tool,
a web based electronic tool which enables us to connect with our suppliers/ service
providers and vice versa. SM`ART facilitates various activities of Supply
Management viz., New Vendor Registration, e-RFx, e-Bidding, Reverse Auction, e-Purchase
Order, Advance Shipping Notice, Payment Information, Feedback Surveys etc.
The Supplier Portal is part of SM`ART (Supply Management Adaptive & Responsive
Tool) system of GMR Group. It is an important e-enabled internet hosted interface
for you as a potential business partner (supplier, contractor or service provider)
with GMR group. The Supplier Portal is a gateway to explore a host of opportunities
that we can together explore and accomplish mutual goals. We use this portal as
a platform to interact with you and conduct our business processes with you. All
the information is managed in a centralized database and is available to all of
our purchasing personnel across the geographies and across the sectors. In the future,
only suppliers and contractors that have registered and filed up-to-date information
will be invited to bid on an on-going basis.
