About Fairmarkit

We're a Boston-based startup backed by leading venture capitalists disrupting how companies make purchasing decisions. Organizations ranging from the MBTA to ServiceNow trust us to guide their purchasing.

Fairmarkit’s mission is to revolutionize how procurement tail spend is handled. Tail spend is 20% of the total spend that organizations direct towards non-strategic procurement. (For instance, think of a car company buying 10,000 screws or hiring 50 people.) Not only are companies overpaying for this but 80% of the average company’s vendors are bidding to provide its least valuable items, making it a management nightmare. Fairmarkit is a groundbreaking SaaS platform that automates visibility into and control of all tail spend processes. Additionally, Fairmarkit’s unique procurement automation solution cuts spend by 15%+.
