In it for the long haul

Procurement is one of the most critical functions of any business. Any disruption to the smooth and continuous flow of goods, materials and services can bring a business to a standstill. Supplier Management isn’t just about finding the best price for a contract – it is about ensuring that a contract can be delivered in time and on budget.

It isn’t about ticking boxes.

TextScore: using Machine Learning techniques to analyse the words accompanying a company’s filed financials.


Risk Rating: places a client into one of ten risk categories where level 1 is the lowest risk and level 10 is the highest.

Stress testing: in just a few clicks you can see where your most critical suppliers are most financially vulnerable
