Find new suppliers overnight

  • The Search Setup

    Configure our AI with your expertise. When setting up a new search, answer 7 simple questions. For example: What expertise is important in the suppliers you are looking for? Are you searching globally or only in specific regions?
    The AI guides you through this process and provides assistance where you need it. At the end, you decide which requirements you want to give the AI.

  • The Supplier Target Profile

    7Q1 cleverly combines your answers with each other, links them to matching keywords and logically develops them further. The resulting individual supplier target profile is now used by the AI to search the entire textual Internet for suitable suppliers.

  • Global Sourcing in all Languages
    The AI searches the entire data space for you, worldwide, in all languages. The AI uses the entire textual internet as a data source. These include company websites, data from chambers of commerce, trade associations, ports, trade fairs, company registers and many other public and non-public sources where companies leave information

    In short: a superior, multilingual competence that opens up unimagined possibilities in the search for suppliers.
  • Supplier Rating

    After a few minutes, the user receives an initial supplier list consisting of 10 to 20 suppliers. These suppliers are to be evaluated: Does the supplier fit the requirements? Does the supplier master all the necessary technologies? Are all parameters correct?

    With this feedback, the AI gets to know your requirements even better. You train the AI and parameterize the final algorithm.

  • AI Clustering

    With the help of your evaluations, the AI now clusters well-fitting and not so well-fitting suppliers and thus forms the technical basis for the final longlist.

    Within a few hours, the final supplier list with up to 100 suitable suppliers is created using state-of-the-art AI algorithms.

  • The final Longlist

    With the final longlist of perfectly suitable suppliers, you receive a lot of further information. In addition to company information, you also receive contact details and data on the company's sustainability aspects: ESG scores and CO2 logistics values.

    Get an overview yourself or contact them directly: 7Q1 has prepared all relevant information clearly for you. Exporting is also child's play, so you can continue working smoothly in your target systems.
