The Portal Nimbi is a virtual space for the commercialization of products and services that form the interface between Vale and its suppliers, increasing the integration of purchasing processes, from quotation to payment. 

With Portal Nimbi, we seek to be an even faster and more efficient company and we hope to bring more visibility at all stages of the supply processes for our suppliers. This tool was developed with transparency and user-friendliness in mind.

The Portal brings a number of benefits:

Single, integrated platform
Centralization of different processes of the purchase flow in the same environment

Reduction of tax discrepancies
Integration with the tax optimization tool

Multi-device
Possibility of being accessed from mobile technologies such as tablets and smartphones

Simpler and more user-friendly navigation 
Follows the concept used in social networks 

Support service 
Support service in the use of the platform for internal users and exclusive service channels for suppliers 

Risk reduction 
Risk reduction of late payment, due to the electronic invoice validation process being carried out prior to the creation of the collection

If your company has not yet registered with Vale, access pre-registration, and after completing the pre-registration with Vale, if your company is selected, you will receive an e-mail from the sender no-reply@midassolutions.com.br to complete Vale's registration process on the Global Supplier Registration Portal (GSRP), and will also receive an invitation to register on the Nimbi Platform. 

If your company is already registered with Vale and the Nimbi Platform, to check your status on Nimbi, access the platform with your registered e-mail and password, click on the “Certifica” module, “Meus Clientes” (“My Clients”), select “Vale S.A.” and check the status that is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. Your company's status must be “Conectado” (“Connected”) so that it is able to transact with Vale through the Nimbi Platform. If your company is not in the “Conectado” (“Connected”) status, click on the “Editar Cadastro” (“Edit Registration”) button at the top of the screen and fill in all the mandatory fields, highlighted with an asterisk on all the side tabs. It will also be required to accept the “Termo de Adesão ao Emarketplace” (“Term of Adhesion to the Emarketplace”), in "Termo de Adesão” (“Term of Adhesion”). Then click on "Enviar para Avaliação” (“Submit for Evaluation”). Attention: Only administrator users have access to the “Editar Cadastro” (“Edit Registration”) option, if this option is not enabled in your profile, contact the account administrator to guide you in the regularization of registration on the Nimbi Platform. 

Click on the “Negocia” module and on “RFX Recebidas” (“RFX Received”). Click on the desired quotation request and, after reading all the information contained in the process, go to the bottom of the page to “Aceitar” (“Accept”) or “Declinar” (“Decline”) your participation. Attention: When you decline a quotation, you will not be able to participate in it again. After accepting the request for quotation, it is necessary to fill in the mandatory fields to send your response to Vale, including the specific information of the items (to do this, click on the description of each item). If necessary, you can save your proposal through the “Salvar” (“Save”) option, but remember that after filling it out, you must click on “Enviar” (“Send”) to send your proposal to Vale. Pay attention to the submission deadline established by the applicant, which is available in the “Cronograma” (“Schedule”). 
Click on the “Purchase” module and “Pedidos Recebidos” (“Received Orders”).  Click on the desired purchase order and, after reading all the information in the document, go to the bottom of the page to Accept or Return the purchase order. Attention: orders can only be accepted or returned in full. 

The supplier must issue the invoice with the information according to the purchase order and send the XML file of the Invoice validated by Sefaz to the e-mail nfe@vale.com. After sending the Invoice, it will go through the validation process at Vale and will have its status reflected on the Nimbi Platform. You can follow the validation of your invoice through the Portal through the “Paga” menu, in the “Notas Fiscais” (“Invoices”) tab.
