If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. Sluamor will allow you and your company to create every conceivable kind of collaborative structure that is legally permissible.

For many companies, hiring extra staff or obtaining extra capital may not be possible to launch a new product idea or target a new market. Use Sluamor if you need help to find other companies to make your next project succeed (e.g., specialised staff, technology, or local knowledge). Start by sharing your business idea as a Consortium pitch.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) typically collaborate to win lucractive contracts in the public sector. Even large companies may need support at times. Creating a consortium offers a path to growth for such companies, where they leverage the relative strengths of the constituent members to win contracts that they would not have had a chance with on their own.
Determine the level of interest others may have in forming a consortium with you, so that your firms can meet your sales objectives together.
Search for live Consortium business opportunities, or setup to get alerts of any new Consortium pitches to suit you and your business. Submit your company proposal when ready.
Sluamor is a self-service, which can be used anywhere and at anytime, via phone, tablet or laptop devices. There are no strings attached. It instills the flexible, proprietary framework we've developed using our collective team experiences, along with modern-day artificial intelligence techniques, to make it simple and easy for you to save time and money when you need to access to more buyers and suppliers, close to wherever you are based, or elsewhere across the world.
The integrity of our platform is taken seriously. So, we verify all our subscribers who present us with pitches and proposals for publication, to ensure that they are authorised representatives of legitimate companies. The vetting starts with us using company registration information available from all across the world to ensure that the expressed companies are legally registered entities in their relevant regions. Thereafter, we follow up with one or more calls to any listed company numbers.
We believe it important to safeguard the privacy of our subscribers, unless they otherwise choose to share their identities (e.g., when submitting a proposal). We want our customers to feel comfortable about sharing their ideas without worrying about fraud or fear of harassment. Therefore, we aim to keep approved company profiles and pitches anonymous (i.e., without any obvious links to individuals or companies). Our customers are in control at all times, and decide who they want to interact with on their terms.
When you setup a pitch, anyone can have access to the relevant information by default. However, there will be cases where you'll know exactly which companies you'd like to view your pitch. You can easily restrict access to only those companies you want to have access. All you need to do, when you're starting from scratch, is to add and select the relevant business contacts. And, where applicants have been previously shortlisted, the system will do it all for you.
The use of standardised processes plays a major part in helping companies to adopt good practices when establishing third-party commercial agreements. Sluamor also incorporates other ways to assist our customers in reducing possible integrity and legal risks. For example, we mandate the provision of clear evaluation criteria, prevent submission of late proposals, and restrict access to proposals prior to submission deadlines.
We strongly believe all competitions should be carried out using fair and non-discriminatory rules. As such, all individuals who record their interest in a pitch, are provided equal access to the pitched requests for proposals and expressions of interests, shared evaluation criteria, and recorded clarifications. In addition, we ensure the distribution of evaluation results to all bidders in one step, using a standard format.
Sluamor is a two-sided self-service platform that helps procurement, business development, and sales professionals to connect with wider variety of buyers or suppliers for simpler, smarter ways of orchestrating invaluable B2B commercial agreements.
Sluamor also helps busy professionals to access cutting-edge market intelligence, tutorials, and templates that will help them better embed procurement and sales best practices.
