We are excited to announce that the Coventry Building Society has chosen Kaleida International to partner with, and improve access to competitive bid invitations for firms owned and managed by underrepresented groups.
Coventry Building Society is committed to developing a truly diverse and representative supply chain because it fosters business innovation, provides access to different communities and drives value for members.
Many corporate Procurement teams find that sourcing diverse suppliers is time consuming as the process involves researching against multiple databases.
Rebecca Howard, Head of Supplier Relationship Management, Coventry Building Society said:
“At Coventry Building Society, we value the breadth of thinking that diverse supply chains bring. We are excited to be working with Kaleida and engage with a broad range of organisations that will give us access to new communities and ideas. The Kaleida platform is an innovative approach to bring together corporate procurement teams and enterprising suppliers across many industries”.
Jason Roberts, CEO, Kaleida International, said:
"I am thrilled to announce that The Coventry Building Society has joined Kaleida International.
Through this partnership we will increase the ease of access to commercial opportunities for marginalised businesses irrespective of their diversity.”
"Finding Diverse Suppliers is time-consuming as the process today involves researching against multiple databases."
Founded in 2019, Kaleida International is a B2B marketplace for Tenders connecting Buyers to Suppliers, and Diverse Suppliers. With a focus on helping the Chief Procurement Office achieve its ESG goals, and alerting companies to new revenue opportunities, Kaleida's fully-inclusive platform helps Buyers find, identify and assess Diverse Suppliers they can invite to Tender.
In 2023 Kaleida will publish £800b in both Public and Private sector tenders for suppliers, and Diverse suppliers to apply to. By increasing access to commercial opportunity, we believe we can drive equality through providing access to economic parity.
