Greening the Supply chain
SRM works with RFQ Strategies and offers the evaluation of the products and services procured for their life cycle costs, environmental and carbon footprint. As well using the RFQ Strategies on line program for requesting proposals, the companies staff involved with the proposal are provided a secure website that allows them to use the integrated design and procurement platform with all the power of the internet and emails.
The program allows for the vendors to submit their proposals on line and eliminate waste and the fossil fuel delivery of proposals. The program eliminates excessive printing and paper as the vendors and purchasing staff use the internet and only print what is needed. The system allows for all the uploading and downloading of all the normal contract documents, drawings and specifications and all the communication during the tendering and proposal preparation process. It provides for normal bidding to a fixed time and also reverse auctions if applicable to the proposal. It save time and provides many analysis tools to evaluate and score the proposals received in an organized way across all areas of responsibility.
