What We Do
Po0ol targets a wide variety of small and medium businesses with little time to manage their operations and presents them competitive solutions to buy and sell sustainable goods or services.
Po0ol provides a platform for small and medium businesses to quickly view several options for acquiring sustainable resources.
We ensure competitive prices for sustainable goods and services by aggregating the buying power of SMEs on a city level. The Po0ol deals are designed to connect businesses with similar demands and obtain premium prices from this partnership.
Po0ol brings solutions that benefit both the businesses' performance and the environmental quality of its city. Through actions such as supply chain management, transport logistics and market strategies we are focused on creating a stronger and more sustainable small and medium business community.
Po0ol is a start-up developing a business-to-business ECOmmerce marketplace for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
With a focus on four complementary fields; research, supply chain management, transport logistics and financial sustainability. We aspire to provide a competitive business-to-business portal where suppliers of sustainable products and services sell their products at a reduced price.
Po0ol is committed to empower a business community that is actively contributing to mitigate climate change. We therefore cooperate with clients and users from different sectors including, energy, food, transport and retail.
On the Po0ol ecommerce marketplace we promote the collaborative purchasing of sustainable options. Businesses shopping together and shopping sustainably are the two main mechanisms we use to reduce the carbon emissions of the local businesses.
How do we work? To ensure the appropriate demand and supply for each industry we follow five steps:
On market challenges, the drivers for change, the business case studies, the risks and costs analysis of deals.
2) Build a value chain for each business sector
Map the resources used by each specific customer sector as well as the main suppliers and their degree of satisfaction. Analyze best fitting and potential sustainable suppliers for those needs. Cluster the potential suppliers according to environmental and social criteria to ensure transparency and the buying of safe and green products.
3) Create strong partnerships with the suppliers
Set competitive contracts and determine the key performance indicators.
4) Data monitoring
Continuous analysis on market trends, sustainable sourcing alternatives and commercialization strategies. We also focus on identifying risks to operate in a cost-efficient way.
5) Promote successful impacts on a city level
Po0ol aims to become a marketing leader for our customers in the eco-market. To do so, we spread the successful stories happening on the Po0ol website and promote the environmental impact of the Po0ol transactions for the reduction of CO2 on a city level.
