Benefits of GeM (Government-E-Marketplace) Registration

For updating of documents, records, and consultation on how to proceed with the business, sellers can get direct access to various Governmental departments. Also, through the GEM registration service, sellers can sell goods and provide services to the Governmental offices directly.
Easy marketing
Marketing on the Government online shop is easier than being a standalone business. It is also much hassle-free than advertising on popular media like Television networks or newspapers.
New product introduction
After the GEM registration service online is completed, marketers can continue to learn and grow from their past sales records. Accordingly, they can introduce new and updated products to their customers.
Dynamicity in pricing
In this Government E-marketplace, the sellers are already at a cut-throat competition. So, to beat the game, they can offer dynamic pricing according to the market conditions. In turn, the sellers will gain the majority of the consumer base.
Easy e-inventory and dashboard
In the GeM portal, all past transaction records are journalized. Also, a digitized trade sheet is maintained for monitoring the e-inventory.
Safe and secure
The Government E-marketplace is a safe and secure platform to carry on your business. Here, all information, along with documents, is e-verified by both buyers and sellers at different stages to facilitate safety.
No need for individual product registration
As the sellers are already listed in a Government platform as OEMs, their resellers or authorized channel partners, they do not have to register each and individual product.
Uniform and consistent procedures of purchase
Last but not least, the GEM registration service provides consistent and uniform purchase procedures.
