Online Procurement Services (OPS)
OPS facilitates the procurement and payment of goods and services in the company or projects regions
In 2015 QMI forged a Joint Venture with IONYX to create Online Procurement Services. Online Procurement Services is a company established to provide an eProcurement System designed to maximise efficiencies and facilitate procurement and payment of a range of goods and services to improve sourcing and procurement processes for companies and projects.
Online Procurement Services supplies an online eProcurement system (OPS), servicing the tactical and strategic spend requirement of an organisation/project. The offering assists with tactical spend of an organisation becoming more streamlined and automated, offering a single point of release to the market place. The system is designed to manage a complete procure to pay process.
OPS provides the means to efficiently manage supplier relationships and facilitate the introduction of suppliers into the organisation’s supply chain. This leads to increasing responsiveness in the supply chain, which translates to the project being able to demonstrate transparency and engagement of local suppliers.
OPS facilitates registered users to look for buyers or sellers of goods and services. Buyers will use the system to invite bids against specific EOI’s, RFQ’s and RFT’s.
OPS has many years experience with public portals and EOI process operating as Industry Capability Network (ICN), a group company of OPS under QMI Solutions.
The experience of connecting local businesses to major projects and expertise in the public EOI space, has been further expanded by purpose built portals for companies like Rio Tinto and Origin Energy who are currently using the OPS platform to register and verify suppliers, display EOI opportunities, manage responses from suppliers and send evaluation feedback and results to all participants.
The procurement function within OPS, delivers an end-to-end integrated procurement service that provides our clients with the products and services that they require to function efficiently.
We have a team of specialist staff with a wide range of experience in Mining, Oil & Gas, Technology and Procurement. This helps us to identify products, services and capabilities to assist our clients in the acquisition of goods and/or services to minimise imports and retain opportunities for local industry.
The OPS system is designed and purpose built, and is cloud based for ease of access and scalability offering flexibility and robust functionality.
