The main objective of the project was development and promotion of the Macedonian Automotive Cluster. The project stages included analysis of the Cluster’s goals and identifying stakeholder needs. The target stakeholders consist of the existing and potential business partners, cluster members, other companies operating in automotive suppliers industry, other relevant stakeholders and the general public. After identifying the target audience, main processes and functionalities, Gord Systems designed an information infrastructure which will promote and support the clusters aims and needs. This was the basis for designing the portal and integrated functionalities. The new solution was launched after detailed testing of all the modules and processes. The Cluster’s members were then trained by Gord Systems’ team for content and document management and portal administration.
The current system serves for:
- Presentation of the capacities of the domestic automotive suppliers industry, targeting potential
business partners abroad
- Establishing a communications platform for all interested parties (existing and potential cluster members, interested foreign companies etc.) in the automotive industry
- Creating awareness for the quality of services in the automotive suppliers industry in Macedonia
- Creating value added partnerships, common business opportunities.
