About Procurean?#Procurement #Sourcing #ERP #SupplyChainIntegration
Businesses today are often forced into exploitative geographic monopolies, due to their financial and infrastructural limits imposed on them on behalf of their size. Procurean will create a blockchain-driven procurement network for businesses to securely buy and sell with trusted partners worldwide, while sharing technology and transactional costs in a way that will enable businesses of all sizes to equally trade, compete and share information.
Ensure businesses trade with trustShow more
Vetting and investigating potential business partners comes with significant costs and exposes all parties to numerous risks.
Procurean will enable businesses to judge potential partners based on past-experience from each previous transaction on the network while ensuring data is distributed along the network with blockchain hardened storage.
Provide powerful insights and technologyShow more
Businesses face significant trade barriers and are often locked into poor relationships due to the lack of information, experience, and technology.
Procurean will help empower business by dramatically reducing transaction costs and risk associated with international trade and provide technological infrastructure to drive new value to their processes.
Establish a global interconnected marketShow more
Businesses lack an accessible single global market, where buyers and sellers converge and can always find each other to exchange goods and services.
Procurean connects businesses around the world in a way that ensures buyers can always find new sellers, and sellers can discover new buyers no matter their capabilities or location.
Self-regulating trust mechanism
Trust rank is the most important deciding factor and leverage that businesses have to ensure trustful and fair behavior on the network.
Retrieved from smart data sources, and data gathered by credit rating agencies, it reflects a businesses' liquidity, solvency, operating efficiency, and profitability.
Multi-dimensional (financial and reputational) evaluation resulting connected to every transaction and participant on the network.
Collected from evaluations of participants done on the network through the use of smart instruments in various buyer-seller interactions.
Network-wide implementation of blockchain infrastructure
Procurean network provides technological infrastructure and Procurean dApp provides easy access to all functionalities of the Procurean network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
How it works?
Procurean streamlines and digitalizes procurement while ensuring safe and transparent transactions by using pre-built smart contracts on the Procurean network.
Procurean ensures a converging IT environment where forecasting, internal demand identification, approving and actual procurement is digitalized and standardized.
Demand fulfillment is done through inquiries, where buyers specify items, delivery and payment details, then choose the smart instrument that best fits their procurement needs.
Sellers and buyers are connected with network-wide discovery that matches partners by comparing the inquired items with the network item catalog and individual seller capacities.
Matched participants are invited to bid in an auction administered by a smart-contract, with complete transparency and trust in the decision-making mechanisms.
After an auction has ended and the winning bidder is chosen, Procurean provides required documentation and ensures document exchange between transacting parties.
The process is concluded when inquired goods are delivered and paid for. Participants exchange an evaluation post delivery and payment, which is added to their cumulative trust rank in the network.
Secure by design and reinforced with blockchain technology
Procurean network is built on top of a decentralized network of nodes that use blockchain to provide support for decentralized process execution and data immutability.
Dedicated pre-built smart contracts that control individual business transactions to ensure complete transparency and trust.
A decentralized off-chain network is used to ensure a functioning real-world environment and transaction processing.
Public blockchain is used to ensure data immutability and transparent history of every transaction and evaluation.
PAN is used to place bids in the smart instruments scenarios driven by smart contracts.
PAN is used by business to protect their trust rank when they feel they’ve been given a wrongful evaluation.
PAN is used to lock tokens in a smart contract to provide escrow and further enhance confidence in business transactions.
PAN is used to request guarantees from other, more established partners on the network
