This investment by Beroe will accelerate the integration of Forestreet’s best-of-breed supplier discovery tools.

With the availability of real-time access to trusted market insights and supplier discovery, this will ensure CPOs and their teams have the most recent and curated information when facing new demands to proactively mitigate risk and build resilient supply chains.

“Combining advanced AI algorithm-driven solutions for supplier discovery with our domain expertise, category insights, pricing intelligence and benchmarks gives Beroe LiVE.Ai a compelling market advantage.

“Investing in its future development ensures that we will continue to empower procurement teams with the essential intelligence to achieve savings objectives, navigate inflation challenges and sidestep supply chain disruptions.”

Strong suite of tools

Through its comprehensive suite of tools, Forestreet is the ideal tool for uncovering market insights and understanding companies within a market.

With procurement professionals navigating an increasingly complex procurement landscape, people are required not only to access category-level intelligence but also to be able to delve deeper into supplier insights.

The combination of category and supplier intelligence will equip businesses to build resilient supply chains to manage sustainable success in an evolving market.

“Our clients tell us that our technology is unique, so working with an established market leader like Beroe, with its 18 years of success in supporting procurement domain decision-making, will allow us to provide that capability at scale,” says Alex Miller, CEO and Co-Founder of Forestreet.
