Agility and deep partnership

In order to keep a competitive edge in this type of a challenging environment, we need to be agile and develop our solutions constantly to meet our customers’ advanced technical solution needs. Procurement leaders are already looking into solutions that utilize AI to leverage big data for streamlining processes and improving decision-making. This is shaping our priorities and for the following few years ahead they are quite clear:  How these emerging technologies can make procurement more intelligent.

We think that the best solutions in e-procurement and contract management can only be built on a deep understanding of the procurement professionals daily life and through dedication on helping them create greater business impact. By working closely with our clients and sharing their realities, we ensure solutions that have the potential to change the way procurement teams drive new revenue, identify savings, improve compliance and mitigate risk.

Cloudia’s certificates

Reliable Partner (Luotettava kumppani) service is provided by Suomen Tilaajavastuu Ltd (STV) . The logo may be used by affiliated companies. Reliable Partner logo provides a reliable and honest picture of the company’s business.  It means that the company has properly taken care of all the statutory fees and tax obligations. Business partners can get the company report on Tilaajavastuu web sites. Cloudia has been involved in the Reliable Partner Program for several years.

Growth Certificate (Kasvaja sertifikaatti). Strong growth is an indicator of an increase in the company’s valuation level, and it also distinguishes the company positively from other businesses. Growth Certificate can be awarded to a company that has been doing business for at least four years, has increased its net sales significantly over the last three years and made a turnover of at least EUR 500,000 in the last year.
Significant growth in net sales suggests that the annual growth rate of the company’s turnover has exceeded the industry average growth rate by at least 10 percent. Growth Certificate is awarded by Kauppalehti. Cloudia got a certificate again in 2018.

Strongest in Finland Certificate. The Strongest in Finland Certificate is a sign of the company’s positive financial indicators, creditworthiness and good payment behavior. The Certificate tells customers, partners, creditors and other stakeholders that cooperation with the company is on a sustainable footing. The certificate is based on Suomen Asiakastieto’s Alfa credit rating. Cloudia was honored to use this certificate in 2018.

Achiever Certificate (Menestyjät). Obtaining the Achiever certificate requires that the company’s financial performance is among the best in its industry and in Finland. Some 1.9 per cent of Finnish companies are eligible for the Achiever certification. The Achievers are classified by Balance Consulting, the analysis unit of Kauppalehti, which is part of the Alma Media Group.  The analysis looks at six aspects of the candidate companies’ financial performance: growth, profitability, financial result, liquidity, solidity and debt serviceability. The comparison includes all Finnish companies with an annual turnover of more than Eur 1.7 million. In 2018, we received again this acknowledgment.
