Procurement has always been fertile ground for tech entrepreneurs. We have pulled together some of the most compelling – and potentially disruptive – procurement solutions for a Special Startup Series. We will ask each entrepreneur questions about what gap in the market their solution addresses, how they differentiate their technology and what their tools look like in action.

In this podcast, we interview Tarmo Saidla, Co-Founder and CEO of ProcurementFlow, a collaboration and work management platform founded in 2019.

Discussion highlights include:

  • The challenge of combining consistent purchase approvals and oversight with buyer convenience and speed
  • While a lot has changed in procurement, the need for a centralized team and streamlined processes has not abated
  • How, much like with Excel, companies are unlikely to ever get distributed buyers to stop relying on email for requests and approvals
