Pactum, a Mountain View, CA-based AI-based system that helps global companies automatically offer personalized commercial negotiations on a massive scale, raised $20 million in funding.
The round was led by 3VC, with participation from new investors NordicNinja VC and Maersk Growth, and existing investors Atomico, Project A, Metaplanet, and Taavet+Sten.
The funds will be used to further expand in the U.S. and Europe, and accelerate investment in its capabilities across logistics, intelligent contract optimization, and retail item-level merchandising operations.
“The macro-environment continues to shift at a rapid pace. Enterprises face high inflation, non-stop supply disruptions, and complex inventory problems. Furthermore, as we enter a period of slowing growth, it is even more crucial that companies engage their partners and negotiate agreements that bring financial and operational benefits to both parties,” said Martin Rand, co-founder, and CEO of Pactum.
Pactum’s solution – which uses advanced mathematical models, cognitive science, and best-in-class negotiation techniques – leverages intelligent bots to digitally engage third parties and negotiate mutually-benefiting contracts, leading to better pricing, payment terms, and supply continuity.
