about velo

Velo is the first supply-side large deal management solution. By combining proven deal negotiation process methodology with innovative software, Velo enables companies to quickly maximize their value, optimize their leverage, and negotiate to win.

In manufacturing, businesses almost always find that their top few customers generate most of their revenue. Because of this, negotiations with those crucial customers are high risk, high pressure, big-bet scenarios. To further intensify the negotiation pressure, your customer's procurement teams are getting more sophisticated and investing in procure-to-pay software platforms so they can optimize their position and take your money. It's time to fight back and protect your wallet.
