Here is what JSRS Suppliers say

“JSRS is a wonderful platform to network, connect, collaborate and win contracts from any company across the Sultanate of Oman. It also promotes ICV (In-Country Value), preferring and benefiting the local Omani companies over foreign companies. It is mandatory that every company in Oman be registered on JSRS to make the best use of being online, gaining high visibility and a chance to showcase your products. I wish JSRS and its team the best of luck moving forward in finding and highlighting companies that offer high-quality services in our country.”
