Turning Every Challenge Into An Opportunity
Turning Every Challenge Into An Opportunity
LeanLinking was born when co-founder Lars Kuch Pedersen — then Procurement Director at Wolseley, the world’s largest plumbing distributor — became frustrated with the very limited access procurement had to basic data about the relationship with suppliers and how each supplier performed.

Faced with this challenge and unable to find existing providers with the right solution, Lars set out to create LeanLinking Relations. It’s the only tool on the market that effectively manages supplier relationships, governance, and performance on the operational, tactical, and strategic levels.

The goal is to strengthen partnerships by enabling access to complete and relevant information at the right time, all the time, to seamlessly orchestrate value-filled collaborations.

In the wake of user success with LeanLinking RELATIONS, Lars observed that supplier data were not actively being used in re-negotiations with suppliers. He realized that while information is power, without context, users can have all the information in their hands yet be lost if they do not know what to do with them.

This sparked the idea which would become LeanLinking DEALS — a solution that utilizes all supplier data to guide users through a best practice negotiation process by providing them with automated insights and arguments to achieve the best possible negotiation results. It’s the only solution on the market that delivers knowledge and insights at the right time, contextualized for the specific negotiation you’re working on.

The aim is to ensure that your team is fully prepared with the right facts, the right stakeholders, and an effective negotiation strategy, so you can do more negotiations at a higher level of quality using less time per negotiation.

Today, LeanLinking has two distinct solutions that work autonomously or in tandem, developed, designed, and overseen by procurement and negotiation executives, programmers, and business developers who strive to constantly improve and innovate to help you turn every challenge into an opportunity.
