Linking contract opportunities to local business providers is the service from FIDC’s web-based SAROS.

Originally created to put the oil industry in touch with our Islands’ excellent enterprise community, the scope soon extended, making the platform a useful tool for all those with contracts to fulfil.

Over the last year or so, the ‘members’ of SAROs struggled with its technical shortcomings, and FIDC commissioned a rebuild and upgrade to make it work and look better for users. That’s now done.

The SAROS full revamp will make it fit for the future – and give a better user experience for its members. The well-known local IT specialist Brian Jamieson did the tech rebuild and designer Tony Ellis polished up the graphics.
