Who we are
Our mission at SKARDE® is to offer a state-of-the-art product that provides businesses with «real time» cost transparency and automated expert insights with a unique SaaS-like business development platform. The SKARDE® product has worldwide relevance and is aimed towards companies with revenues from 50 million EUR and all the way up to the largest enterprises. With so many businesses that may benefit from our help, our market size is almost unlimited, and our growth potential enormous – which is why we are looking to expand our motivated team in Copenhagen.
Each day we see organizations struggle with low-quality cost data and therefore navigate blindly. As a result, SKARDE® has developed a new and unique SaaS-like business development platform that helps businesses and public organizations to reach higher level of competitiveness through cost transparency and identification of cost optimization opportunities. The core of the platform is the business transactions (external spend) between companies - a monumental source to competitiveness, as external spend typically represents 50-70% of company revenue. SKARDE®’s value proposition, in short, is enablement of additional 3-8% cost reductions as well as freeing up business intelligence resources.
SKARDE® was founded by the end of 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark and employs a broad team of ambitious people within software development, sales, product, and financing. The company has a professional board of directors and is following an ambitious growth strategy. SKARDE® is a spin-off business from one of the most successful and fastest-growing Procurement & Supply Chain management consultancies in Scandinavia, Prokura A/S.
