Shahab Azayez Al Awadhi, CEO of MSC, said, 'The portal’s services revolutionised our deal-making process, which were typically old styled involving lot of paper work and were time consuming.'
MSC’s biggest transactions through Tejari have been with Dubai Health Authority, Dubai Municipality and Centre of Ambulance Services, which were conducted between the second half of 2008 and first half of 2009. The leading distributors conduct three to five auctions or tenders through the portal every day.
Suhail Al Banna, CEO Tejari said: “We conducted a study to obtain real-life examples of positive trading experiences with other businesses registered on the Tejari portal and to co-promote our business partners’ activities.
