More about our Journey from Past
Since 1983 Prognos has supported purchasing organisations, enabling better negotiations and fact based decision making. Prognos offers a digital platform letting you quickly access cost changes for your specific products. The data behind the tailormade reports is continuously updated by our experts, always giving you the advantage in cost negotiations with your suppliers!
It takes patience, experience and a hint of luck to build and nourish a company for 40 years. Prognos was founded in 1983 by Ulf Kolheden who’s passion for data and analytics shaped the heart of the company. Ulf was a master in finding data that was invaluable for manufacturing companies to use in their price negotiations. In 2002 Jacob Mannheimer joined the flagship with 30 years of experience within purchasing. Jacob came with the vision of creating a tailormade cost service that could balance the unfair knowledge position suppliers had over strategic buyers. Prognos unique offer attracted both investors and international customers. In 2018 part of the company was acquired by the current owners. Today Prognos is able to provide customized reports to over 40 customers acting both on the local and global market.

MEET THE TEAM
The Creative Crew Behind Prognos
We were able to reduce the price risk in a sourcing project by understanding cost trends!
Reduce the price risk
Supplier evaluations started when prices of steel was artificially squeezed throughout Europe. During the negotiation process, every offer got more and more expensive. Indicators predicted that the price increase might be temporary and that a heavy price drop would soon follow the shocking price increase. To secure benefits with a price drop after a mutual raw material clause was included in the contract. This resulted in substantial price reductions for our customer without further negotiations when prices turned down the following year.
Loved by businesses and individuals across
A few days after I received your model I renegotiated the prices with my main supplier. I received a price reduction of 15%, which wouldn’t be possible without this support.
After our previous supplier wouldn’t adjust their prices according to indications from our models from Prognos, we made the decision to look for a new supplier. The funny thing is that the new prices, after the sourcing project, were exactly in line with what Prognos models suggested. This saved us about 20% within this major category.
