We. Meplato.

We target to develop a set of modern and intuitive e-procurement applications to connect buyers and suppliers in the best commercial and technical way. Especially in times of rising complexity and increasing requirements this aspect is of great importance.

Based on long year track records of many international large-scale enterprise projects we identified two central challenges in purchasing: Supplier integration and content preparation, based on specific KPI’s and the company’s strategy. Whether the own corporate catalog cloud, the connection of web shops and market places or the integration of requests and procurement service provider.

We own the tools to support both, the company’s procurement strategy and the suppliers intended integration approach in procurement systems.
