Paid (11-50 Employees, 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
Make buying easy
Paid’s mission is to make it easy for big companies to buy from small businesses.
We are building the next-generation procurement automation platform which turns the procurement functions into a profit centre. Our platform revolutionises the purchasing process by living at the intersection between buyers and suppliers:
We help large enterprises to find value by accessing the innovation of smaller suppliers in a seamless way – increasing efficiency and reducing cost.
At the same time, we enable smaller suppliers to interact with their customers with an enterprise grade platform, streamlining the process from order to faster payment.
Cost savings for buyers, faster payments for suppliers – we make the process magic for both sides!
