Success stories
What our customers say about us

“Keelvar makes processes that are complex, simple, so you can easily follow them, and you can easily go through the checkpoints, so you’re sure you’re not going to make a mistake. It’s like having a second pair of eyes checking everything you’re doing, but in a smart way that unlocks more value for strategic events.”

Radu Panciuc, Contracts & Innovation Manager - Samsung

“We’ve got this awesome Optimizer that we use to run large scale, complex sourcing events. But then we’ve also got the autonomous sourcing piece of it now, which is built onto the Optimizer, so you don’t even have to train the teams to use it. You now have a bot do all the work of building and creating the events for you.”

Sam de Frates, Vice President, Commercial – Europe, CIS & Turkey, Mars

“We figured out a better way to do these larger events. And because the bids weren’t so painful, we were able to go more frequently. So we started to do many more events throughout the course of the year.”

Basil Weaver, Director of Supply Chain Solutions and Analytics, CJ Logistics America
