  • 00:10:00 In this section, the founders of a B2B SaaS tool speak about the outdated procurement tools and processes that cost businesses globally two trillion dollars annually. They believe the two main reasons behind the struggle to negotiate deals are the lack of procurement resources and the slow, frustrating process. To fix this, they created a tool that uses machine learning to analyze company data and provide recommendations to streamline procurement decisions. Unlike competitors who focus on commodities, their tool targets services, which are more subjective and complex. Their system captures savings, and they charge a small percentage of the delivered savings. The founders have acquired over 350 leads in their sales pipeline and have conducted numerous interviews with procurement leaders.
