Our culture

Keelvar: Integrity & Honesty
Integrity & Honesty

We engage closely with Enterprise clients in Roadmap development and planning. We believe in finding win-win outcomes with suppliers and that sustainable savings foster collaborative mechanisms for finding efficiencies.

We believe that users of existing procurement software solutions have been getting a raw deal both on the buy and supply side. Many solutions are based on out-dated technology stacks with user interfaces that are complex and unintuitive.

Customers realize more value when tools simplify complexity. We don’t aim to support every conceivably complex scenario because it would come at the cost of having a tool that was too difficult for most users to adopt. We want to bring the benefits of optimization to a much wider audience with a more competitively priced solution.

Pursuit of Excellence

The Keelvar team consists of graduates with backgrounds in Computer Science, Mathematics and Engineering. We share a passion for using the latest advances in Computational Mechanism Design, Optimization and Artificial Intelligence to tackle issues that previously seemed insurmountable.

We are also ‘design led’ and are motivated to create a solution our users can use without needing consultants to ‘explain it’ or engineers to ‘configure it’.
