LINKAGE / CORPORATES / PRO PACKAGE

Pro Package

The Pro package, caters for corporates who typically link their development efforts to procurement outcomes. However, the platform also caters for those that do not link SMME development to Procurement.

SMMEs are developed against procurement opportunities and some SMMEs convert to supplier status based on their progress on development. SMMEs follow a development path guided by the system diagnostic tool and growth plans. Upon achieving milestones, they progress until they reach Platinum level.
