Maritime e-Procurement company Kinnetik Solutions has announced that it will make its KinnetikBuyer available free of charge to shipping companies, for integration into their own procurement platforms and workflows.
Starting from January 2020, any shipping company in the world of any fleet size will be able to use the Cloud-based product to assist in managing their purchasing without incurring any licence fees or percentage charges.
The free licence for the application includes an unlimited number of transactions (RFQ, Quote, PO, POC), users, trading ships and supplier connections, the company says.
“Our corporate mission always revolved around transparency and simplicity; we founded this company with the purpose of bridging effectively the systemic gap between shipping companies and their suppliers around the world,” said Ché Geldard, founder and CEO of Kinnetik Solutions.
“We don’t believe in charging procurement departments for functionality that has already been paid, just out of routine, because this kind of thinking leads inevitably to stagnation. We push ourselves and our clients to demand new functionality and more innovation.”
“Simplicity, predictability and transparency are the principles we commit to. Kinnetik Solutions is setting today an ethical standard for the industry, one which defines that sustainable growth must come from justified client purchases.”
