We are driving change. And these are our latest updates on that change.
DeepStream’s partnership with IONITY has gone from strength to strength, and as a case study it is particularly interesting due to the variety of use cases that have been run through the platform. The growth of IONITY users on the platform is a testament to the collaborative relationship between both companies. To delve deeper into this, we sat down with two of IONITY’s core users; Panagiotis Apostolopoulos, Head of Procurement, and Liliia Hrytsak, Procurement Support Specialist, to discuss their experience working with DeepStream.
This month we have welcomed Emma Cohen, a former trader and ESG research professional, as a Chief of Staff and Operations who has already started encapsulating new directions that drive our team forward. But, rather than keep her all to ourselves, we thought it was well and truly time for everyone else to meet her.
Britishvolt has been one of our most interesting use cases to date. It has been an incredible experience helping them build their company and factories for Lithium ion batteries across the UK. Britishvolt’s commitment to building a sustainable future is one that we share, and are delighted to be facilitating that through our platform.
In other industries, the phasing out of email as the main method of communication has initiated more creative reimaginings of systems and processes, increasing efficiency and simplifying workflows. There’s no reason that this shouldn’t apply to the RFx (‘Request For anything’ (RFP/RFI/RFQs etc.) process too.
Product champions all. Ultimately, we wouldn’t be here without it, there would be nothing to sell, to build upon or to offer if DeepStream the platform didn’t exist. How it is developed, the functionality it offers and the experience it delivers is therefore a crucial part of the future of DeepStream the business.
DeepStream has been committed to a product-driven strategy (rather than sales-driven) from the very beginning. The aim is, and has always been, to be the best product application on the market solving B2B communication problems. With our recent Series-A funding we will continue to stay true to this company philosophy - with our superior technology winning us business, rather than relying on sales and marketing efforts. With this funding, we will focus on further developing a number of DeepStream features, as well as boosting our product and development teams.
To state the obvious; big companies have more money, more people, more resources and bigger networks. However, as The Notorious B.I.G said, “mo money, mo problems”.
The release statement for Cop26 Transportation Day has left many disappointed and dissatisfied with the pledges made, reports The Guardian. The argument supporting this is that the statement has not made any strides or commitments beyond the pledge made in July with the addition of new designs for electric charging points.
An announcement this morning from COP26 is that UK firms will be forced to show how they will hit net zero. We’re here to support companies globally in achieving the same goal.
DeepStream offers all partners a 3-month trial, which gives them the right to walk away before they commit to any further usage. This is a unique model that is driven by a number of factors, and we sat down with our Sales & Business Development team to discuss the thinking behind it, and why it is so important in how we engage with new partners.
Your first time. Like any first, it can seem intimidating - you’ve never done it before, you don’t know what the result will be and you’re worried you’ll spoil it. However, unlike many of your other firsts (yes, including that one), even after sending your first RFx (or any subsequent) you can go back and revise it. It’s like re-writing history, editing out all those cringe worthy memories and perfecting it according to the exact requirements needed.
“The human brain is better than the AI that most companies are using, and users do know best in terms of what they want the outcome to be. Therefore, in relation to DeepStream, it is excellent that the product is human focused, but introducing AI into the loop of the human process can augment the experience”.
The reason it’s important to emphasize this is that adopting and implementing new technology can feel intimidating, and as a result can make people think that it should only be used for more intimidating RFx. We’re here to blow that myth out of the water by explaining why DeepStream is not intimidating, and talking about some of the use cases we’ve seen on the platform - from long and complex, to short and speedy.
Diversity and Inclusivity is a phrase that is very familiar to the majority of us, and if it isn’t already, it should be. Promoting diversity and inclusion is something that shouldn’t just be addressed in the workplace, as its benefits are far more far reaching, however, it is a good place to start.
In this post, we will discuss the importance and route to acquiring a diverse and resilient supply chain and exploring ways that you may be able to apply these principles within your current procurement process or sourcing strategy.
At DeepStream, we have close relationships with all our Partners, but none more so than with our channel partners, with whom we collaborate to drive the best results for themselves - and ultimately for their clients. To delve into this relationship a little more, we sat down with Tarja Strahlman, OREN Commercial Lead to talk about OREN Marketplace (a Shell and IBM venture) and DeepStream: where we started, how we fit into each other’s journeys and where we are heading.
The road to sustainability isn’t easy, and that’s because it's not one that the world as a whole has ever committed to traveling before. This commitment has come at a time when the majority of companies around the globe have started to digitalise, making the marriage between sustainability and tech perfectly timed, and one that everyone is invited to attend.
Manual ways of working that take up time and block collaborative practices, are becoming increasingly redundant as the world becomes more adept at working online, with the support of efficient and transparent procurement software solutions.
User-hostile software ultimately results in users going back to their old ways of doing things, and software collecting “virtual dust” in the corner.
The future of the automotive industry is electric. The traditional fossil fuel-based vehicle market has been declining for decades and will continue to do so as more people turn to sustainable transportation methods. What does this mean for supply chains? This blog post explores how electrical vehicles are driving change, and how to mitigate the disruption to your supply chain whilst maintaining sustainable processes.
In this blog post, we will explore the F&B supply chain and how companies can implement sustainable processes throughout the value chain, while still meeting their company's needs.
What if you could embed transparency and sustainability into the sourcing process, integrating it into our day-to-day lives seamlessly? How much time would you save? How much easier would making a sustainability commitment be? How much more will your customers and investors value your product? Procurement software might be the answer to how you can make smarter, more transparent and more efficient decisions better.
In the past, people have thought that software Suites were the solution. The truth is that there are over 200 different products within these Suites, and the average company only uses 10% of them. Companies signed up to these Suites, are required to invest in training for their employees to use redundant applications on top of paying for unused software, leading to frustration, deviating to emails, and hefty bills. Fortunately, there's another way: best-of-breed.
Xos Truck’s onboarding has been swift, and the team is already seeing the time-saving benefits and streamlining effect in their workflow, after using the platform for just two months!
“The data is clear: the global shift to remote work has led to a significant rise in digital communications and it’s causing employees to feel fatigued and burned out”

Whilst driving a sustainable and environmentally friendly future is increasingly at the top of corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments, these commitments rarely extend to company's sourcing.
