“Global enterprises using new data sources, models and methodologies to increase resilience and productivity is a mega-trend that continues to accelerate,” said Ilya Levtov, Founder and CEO of Craft. “In today’s volatile and unpredictable macro-economic environment, the need for advanced visibility and proactive risk management across a wide range of dimensions has never been greater. The Supply Chain suite at large enterprises continues to undergo its largest wave of transformation since ERP, and the Craft team is proud to empower supply chain, procurement and risk managers every day with data, analytics and software to support their decisioning and workflows.”
Craft’s solution is differentiated due to its proprietary data platform which ingests data from internal customer systems and external sources and generates risk and opportunity insights for the customer in an easy-to-use, cloud-based portal.
