    New Wave Companies 2015: Deem

    in Business

    Last year Procurement Insights launched “A Year in the Life of an eProcurement Start-up” program which saw us, over a twelve month period, track the progression of a start-up eProcurement software company through a series of blog posts and corresponding radio/TV interviews.


    Needless to say, we were able to provide an unprecedented look into the next generation of disruptive innovators in the world of procurement.


    As we did last year, a panel of three industry experts including myself, will select a winner from this year's New Wave 2015 candidates.


    Joining me today to talk about Deem is Founder and CEO Patrick Grady.

    New Wave Company Update: Freightos

    in Current Events

    In what was the ultimate movie cliffhanger, the main protagonists in the 1969 classic The Italian Job, found the bus they were traveling in precariously perched over the edge of a cliff.  Whether they survived or careened down the steep drop was left up to the movie goer to decide.


    Well I am happy to say that we did not come to the same impasse in selecting our co-winners in the 2014 Year in the Life of an eProcurement Start-up series.  I am of course talking about Scout and Freightos.


    As part of our extensive coverage of the companies during 2014 we will be airing, on a quarterly basis, interviews with members of their respective executive teams regarding the previous quarter in terms of successes, challenges and set-backs, as well as looking to the future.


    Joining me today is Freightos CEO Zvi Schreiber.
