The GSMA today announced the launch of the GSMA Marketplace, an online commerce platform for the mobile industry to address all inefficiencies in online procurement processes and to bring ease to buying and selling online.

Every year, thousands of mobile industry buyers and sellers converge at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to enhance partnership. Now the GSMA Marketplace targets to bring trading to a digital level, enabling a broader range of buyers and sellers in the telecommunications industry to do business more easily with each other.

The GSMA Marketplace hopes to make procurement simpler and more efficient for both buyers and sellers where merchants wouldn’t have to bear high costs to showcase products and users can have access to all valuable information of products and services.

On the GSMA Marketplace, sellers can establish their own personalised online storefronts and promote their products and services to the global community of active qualified telecom buyers. They will be able to upload their products, and service catalogues, respond to instant Request for Proposals (RFPs), queries. i.e they become more visible and accessible. Sellers will be charged an annual subscription of $1,500 USD.

The Marketplace also includes a research tools called ‘Research centre’ where buyers, sellers, potential partners and competitors can analyse the market.

John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA Ltd said, “Our members asked us to set up the GSMA Marketplace and as an industry association we are in a unique position to attract buyers and sellers in telecoms from all over the world. We are focused on establishing it as the premier online destination to do business in the future.”

The GSMA also invites its members to join the Marketplace as buyers for free.

Over 1,300 organisations signed up to GSMA Marketplace at the launch.
