People, planet, and profits

We’ve empowered our customers to keep more than 50,000 tons of product out of landfills. This is a great outcome for their profits, our planet, and the millions of Americans trying to make their dollars go further.

Born in Boston, building for all

Our company was born out of MIT in 2015, and we owe a lot to the entrepreneurial ecosystem within Massachusetts. Today, our team is distributed across North America, enabling us to better serve our growing and national customer base.

Deep roots in data and supply chain

Our team brings decades of experience across supply chain, retail and CPG analytics, ecommerce, sustainability, and enterprise software. We take a data-driven approach to everything we do - it is at the core of the insights we bring to life for our customers.
