“Proven makes managing our vendors easy and has saved lots of time and spreadsheet headaches! With the platform, we're able to organize and share valuable discounts and perks with our Portfolio Companies - highlighting deals from both companies within the Sierra Ventures portfolio as well as a curated list of preferred vendors that we trust. I highly recommend checking them out!"
Investors around the world need help when it comes to choosing the right vendors, partners, and suppliers to work with in your country or region. Proven helps by allowing you to create a custom marketplace of trusted vendors that can help your FDI Investors on their journey. From local banks, accountants, lawyers to recruiters, you know who to trust in on the ground, but your investors might not. Most investors will simply go online, do a search for service providers and bypass investment promotion agencies completely.
Proven allows you to recommend the highest quality vendors and connect them to FDI Investors easily and quickly, and then get feedback on the performance of these vendors, suppliers, and partners. No more guessing on how they performed. As an investment agency, you control which suppliers appear on the platform, and you control the conversations. Vendor selection and recommendation can be difficult, and is fraught with reputational risk, as there is no fair way to recommend vendors, and it is hard to be transparent. With Proven, you can give your investors an online dashboard of recommended vendors, and they can choose themselves.
Proven is being used by some of the most sophisticated FDI and Export Promotion agencies in the world, who use this digital-first platform to recommend, track and get feedback on vendors, suppliers, and partners. Vendor management software like Proven is an important tool for any modern FDI and export promotion agency. If you're interested in giving your investors a fair and fast way to understand how strong your partner ecosystem is, in a digital online platform, then Proven is the way to go.
