Shanduka Blackpages is an initiative of Shanduka Black Umbrellas (SBU). Shanduka defines “change” and the tools to transformation are what Shanduka Black Umbrellas brings to black entrepreneurs in South Africa.
The enterprise and supplier development portal
Shanduka Blackpages is a powerful, online national directory connecting big business to smaller black enterprises to transform procurement in South Africa. Powered by the Supply Chain Network and Absa, Shanduka Blackpages is the most efficient procurement interface on the market.
It is a platform to achieve transformation as it links big business to smaller black enterprises. Procurement professionals now have a tool, aided by ease of navigation, through which they can quickly search, filter and locate approved suppliers listed on the Shanduka Blackpages database.
Procurement professionals have peace of mind knowing that the companies listed will be able to deliver the goods and services profiled on the site, and they will be able to select the most appropriate suppliers from the national database for their specific requirements.
Smart filters, easy navigation, saved search reports and advertised tenders will also ensure that smaller black enterprises will have a national presence and access to larger corporations. Being listed on the Shanduka Blackpages supplier database, will ensure that suppliers and procurement professionals will be linked by industry, with targeted outcomes so that the best fit is achieved.
Standardised templates for tender submissions will take the headache out of the submission process, and will save on time and money as a result. Tender opportunities are also linked to industry-specific opportunities, facilitating an otherwise cumbersome process.
This all important online supplier and procurement directory is a must-have for every South African business. Become part of this network today.
The Shanduka Blackpages membership goes a long way because it gives us exposure, because as a business you might not be able to afford the advertising in magazines or other procurement portals – basically it exposes us to the buyers of our services.
