Announcing Benchmarks & Copilot: Your AI-Powered Software Procurement Expert

Cledara is proud to introduce two transformative features: SaaS pricing benchmarks and the world’s first AI-powered SaaS Procurement Copilot. These innovative additions place expert software procurement capabilities into the hands of every team.

November 14, 2023


Why Benchmarks and Copilot?**

In the world of software, opaque pricing and vendor-dominated negotiations are commonplace. Cledara is changing this narrative by democratizing the procurement process, giving every team member the tools they need to make confident purchasing and renewal decisions. 

To enable fair pricing and better negotiations we assess your unique situation by comparing how much you’re spending compared to others, how much the tool is being used, and alternative tools to consider. 

The AI-powered copilot then uses this information to support you through the negotiation process with pre-populated renewal emails and tracking of the renewal process.

What Makes Benchmarks and Copilot So Powerful?**

Everyone is empowered: According to research by Cledara, 65% of all SaaS is bought directly by business users without the involvement of IT, finance, or procurement. Now anyone in your organization can negotiate with the skill of a seasoned SaaS procurement veteran.

Data-Driven Insights for Fair Pricing: By analyzing Cledara's extensive data set, comprising over 250,000 SaaS purchases and renewals from H1 2023 alone, the copilot determines fair pricing for SaaS subscriptions. This enables businesses to make informed decisions and negotiate better deals.

Streamlining Renewals: Our Copilot proactively identifies key negotiation points and drafts emails for renegotiations based on AI-predicted renewal dates, streamlining your processes.
