  • Adding Major Customers

    Revenue is up 30% over 2008, and the company continues to operate on a cash-flow positive basis. Since its founding in 2000, every customer that has been up for renewal has extended their commitment to the SmartSearch Catalog solution, creating a multi-million dollar backlog of guaranteed future revenue.
  • New Features and Capabilities
    Among the new features and capabilities delivered in the first half of 2009 include Punchout Price Audit, improved Supplier Self Service Catalog Upload and Management, SAP Item Master Audit, Custom eForms for Ordering Services, and a Supplier Information Portal.
  • Over $1B in Online Orders

“Demand for Vinimaya’s solution is strong globally despite a challenging economy,” said Gary Hare, CEO of Vinimaya.  “The feedback from clients is that they want more, so we continue to re-invest and expand our offerings to meet  their e-procurement needs”.

Vinimaya’s, SaaS delivered, patent-pending SmartSearch CatalogTM solves the most challenging issues facing the e-procurement market today; user and supplier adoption. It’s the only solution in the market that gives users the ability to search and shop multiple supply sources concurrently: web sites, industry marketplaces, supplier networks and catalog databases, from a single user interface; while providing the Buying organization the control over user access and pricing they demand. Supplier enablement is made easier and less expensive thanks to the non-invasiveness of Vinimaya’s technology. When complemented by Vinimaya’s B2B TransactionsTM Internet EDI solution, Vinimaya clients create their own “virtual Internet supplier networks”.
