About Us

Tired of tools that don’t do what you need?

We were too. There needed to be a better choice so we made one.


That’s why we created Contraqer—a tool for procurement professionals designed and built by procurement professionals. We felt procurement was opaque enough without the ill-fitting software “tools” that were available to us as small and medium sized businesses. We didn’t have millions of dollars for existing ERP software, let alone the years they take for deployment, configuration, and user adoption.



Buy better with a workflow that’s faster and simpler, with less paperwork and more choice.


See more when all your information is in one place, across your inventory, your organization, and your vendors.


Plan ahead for the things you need – and identify the best value for your business – with an optimized workflow and data-driven insight.



Discover greater opportunities and leverage strength in numbers when you work within buyer communities.


We built Contraqer because we directly experienced years of frustration trying to manage procurement and contracting.

We knew that it shouldn’t have to be as complicated and chaotic as it typically is, and none of the tools we used ever gave us what we needed to do our jobs. So we made Contraqer—a clear and easy path to friction-free procurement for all.
