Asteco launches digital vendor management portal
Asteco Property Management have launched their proprietary Vendor Portal.
“Our Vendor Portal allows companies to register the services that they offer to Asteco” said John Stevens, managing director of Asteco. “For companies, it will ensure that the goods and services they have on offer are visible to all our Property Managers whom are working to service almost 500 managed properties across the UAE.”
With their details registered on the Vendor Portal these companies will be available for consideration for future RFPs and proposals required by building Owners, based on the areas they operate and services that they offer.
For Asteco it means that the entire process, from selection of suppliers through to award of contracts, is streamlined through a qualitative assessment of the Vendors submitted supporting documents and references, whilst also allowing there to be an increase in transparency across all our offices of the capability, professional qualifications, experience and prices secured for these services.
Developed by an internal team of programmers, the Vendor Portal compliments the Proprietary software platforms Asteco has already developed which includes, Property Management, HR and ERP platforms.
“Whilst we have looked at purchasing software platforms from specialist providers, on many occasions we have found it more efficient to develop our own software rather than customising an existing platform,” said Stevens. “The Vendor Portal is a prime example of this, it has been built from the ground up based on the requirements of our users and we expect this to be a very beneficial tool for Asteco, clients, contractors and consultants.”
