The process of industrial services procurement has remained unchanged over decades, for operations, project, and maintenance managers as well as vendors, in manufacturing and allied industries. The traditional process is also familiar to them, and thus remains the primary mode of operation, despite large-scale digitization across other parts of the industry. However, familiarity with a process does not guarantee efficiency or even results.
This is what the founders of Venwiz realized while working in the manufacturing industry. They witnessed the challenges faced by manufacturers and vendors firsthand. Thus prompting the question:

To give you a better understanding of how Venwiz is changing the landscape of industrial service procurement for you, let us walk you through a simple comparison of the traditional process that most managers and vendors are familiar with, versus the Venwiz experience.
Note: Industrial Services encompass a broad range of activities that a shop floor manager needs to source from vendors to ensure continuous and smooth operations at a manufacturing plant.
Traditional Industrial Service Procurement in India:
Traditionally, industrial service procurement goes through the stages of offline discovery of service vendors, informal scoping, and job collaboration which is not only expensive and laborious but also time-consuming for managers.
Whenever a service requirement is identified, a manager initially relies on their personal network or networks of other managers to source/discover the right vendors to collaborate with. Alternatively, they search online and try to contact vendors via listings and directories. This process could take anywhere from a few weeks to months, to get to the stage of shortlisting. The number of service vendors that can be evaluated by a manager, is also limited by these networks, lists, and directories and remains unorganized.
Most of the time when evaluating a limited pool of vendors over a long period, a manager who is deprived of a larger choice will ultimately be limited with price discovery as well. There is also a huge dependency on the availability of those particular vendors to do the job, at the required time.
Additionally, as service procurement is not uniformly standardized it cannot be procured right off the shelf.
Purchasing or procuring customized services requires a deep evaluation of the appropriate service vendor. Everything from their capabilities to scope of work and experience of past clients would need to be verified, thus making it both a qualitative as well as a quantitative evaluation, something that is not readily available even after you can discover vendors within the network.
The Venwiz Solution:
At Venwiz, we are addressing these challenges at their core. Our solution is a simple, yet powerful AI-driven platform that will help our users discover service vendors who are relevant only to their requirements, saving stakeholders time and effort, especially helping them reach the shortlisting stage within a few minutes (a process that would otherwise take months).

This profile will also help managers, giving them the ability to quickly assess whether the vendor is the right match for the job.We have also considered the barrier of improving how vendors & manufacturers communicate;
