We've found the suppliers that are most successful on OMX are the ones that actively leverage the platform to win business from large procurement programs. Here are some tips on how to maximize your use of the platform and earn business from these programs:
Keep an Updated Company Profile
Routinely update your company profile to appear higher in search results. Make sure your profile has all of your company information including: capabilities, location, size, and certifications so that you don't miss out. Fill in the details, contact and products & services sections of your profile to get best results.
Insider tip: Update your profile based on the contracts you are interested in working on to gain traction.
Actively use OMX to reach out to Prime contractors and Tier 1s that you are interested in working with. Messages in OMX go to users specifically responsible for managing a procurement project or business development at the Prime company. You can share documents and it will be backed up for causality.
