With Calculum, you can compare your company with your competitors and analyze each of your suppliers - whether they’re small, privately-owned, or based in emerging markets - for direct and indirect spend.
Get insights into your buyer leverage with each supplier, their credit rating and financial strength, their financing costs, their Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG), and their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) assessment.
Calculum’s ADA Platform will tell you what payment terms are offered to your competitors by suppliers. Customized scripts with all the right arguments for each supplier empower Procurement and Sourcing Executives to win every negotiation with suppliers based on the key reasonings. The result - on average, over 8% in working capital benefits and free cash flow.
But we don’t stop there. We follow through and help you set up optimization programs such as harmonizing your terms across your organization or setting up a Supply Chain Finance program. In addition, we help you with supplier communication and create your own plan on the ADA platform for executing and tracking results within your organization.
Calculum provides you with a secure, science-driven, cloud-based supply chain intelligence platform. We call her ADA.
ADA uses rule-based logic to collate, process, analyze, predict, and visualize financial supply chain data from multiple internal and external sources. Over 25 different factors are used to optimize and negotiate your payment terms based on data insights from your competitors.
The analysis of payment terms is based on years of development, including research conducted by the team and academics from the leading University of St.Gallen in Switzerland.

Instead of predicting payment terms by comparing the same companies, Calculum applies an attribute and pattern-based approach, allowing you to compare similar, alternative suppliers.
All companies are anonymized and analyzed based on their key attributes and trading patterns. This allows you to compare similar companies with the same features, creating millions of different combinations. By using only attributes and patterns rather than company names, Calculum also ensures data privacy.
