How it works:

Suppliers

Creating your business listing on the ProcureCo Directory is a great way to increase visibility for your business to public sector buyers. The ProcureCo Directory has been designed by experienced procurement professionals from our steering group to perfectly capture important details about your business, allowing buyers to quickly find businesses who are best positioned to work with them.

Directory features and benefits

Powerful, custom business profile listing

Your listing includes a fully customizable profile section. Here you can provide detailed information about your business, including how and why you are best positioned to work within the public sector.

Using prefigured questionnaires designed by procurement teams themselves to build your ProcureCo Directory membership ensures that procurement professionals can see all relevant credentials at a glance.

Maximise visibility as a featured supplier

Featured suppliers benefit from increased visibility to public sector buyers. As a featured supplier, businesses are entitled to additional benefits, such as one-to-one meetings with procurement professionals, along with access to seminars and workshops to enhance your skills and understanding of best practice and the bid process.

For suppliers serious about building a credible route to market within public sector procurement, membership of the directory as a featured supplier is a huge asset.

Communicate and collaborate with public sector professionals

Your listing enables direct communication with public sector buyers and other suppliers through their medium of choice.

Profile viewers can call, email, visit your website or message internally to find out more about your offering and discuss forthcoming tender opportunities. This allows for greater collaboration between suppliers, maximising chances of success in bids, along with improving overall network and positioning within the public sector market.

Location profiling

Allowing potential buyers to search by location helps procurement teams to find the right suppliers, faster. The directory allows businesses to highlight their own location, and outline those boroughs that they service. You may also profile more than one location, increasing your visibility to potential buyers.

Highlight key skills with multi-media listings

Bring your profile to life and make it stand out with custom images and video uploads. By showcasing key skills, case studies or capabilities, your business can stand out to public sector procurement professionals, increasing your chances of securing new business.

Form cross-category alliances

The category function on the directory not only allows procurement teams to view your listing, but also highlights your services to other suppliers offering complementary skills and services. Increase the opportunities to tender and widen your network by collaborating with other suppliers across first, second and third tier enterprises.

Social proof

User reviews on your profile allow you to build a credible social proof of key capabilities and services levels, demonstrating your expertise to procurement professionals.
