Profi scaling their RFQs and Reverse auctions with Prokuria

About PROFI

More than 1.000 stores, 800.000 customers and 16.000 employees

PROFI is the modern retail network with the largest geographical expansion in Romania and with a growth rate still unmatched in this country. In May 2019, it became our first network with more than 1000 stores, located in almost 500 localities in all counties and Bucharest. 

The PROFI network proves to be extremely flexible and innovative, operating with Standard, City and Loco stores. Through the Loco format, PROFI has become the first retailer to consistently address areas outside large urban agglomerations.


Since the beginning of 2019, PROFI is ranked among the top three employers in Romanian retail, with over 16,000 employees working to promote the company's values: Trust, Involvement, Passion.
Nearly 800,000 customers step on the doorstep of PROFI stores every day to enjoy the up to 6,000 products available to buyers at some of the best prices on the market.


PROFI encourages local production, about 80% of the assortment being produced in Romania. The success of the network is also due to the growing number of own brands, which tend to approach 20% of total products.

What used to take us one day, now takes 30 minutes - 1 hour each week

We are using the platform for almost 2 years now. For us, it has been an excellent tool customized specifically for our organization’s needs.

Prokuria fulfilled our requirements and continued to adapt to our needs. The overall benefits of the simplicity and rapidity in implementing it are fantastic. We find the platform user-friendly for both the buyers but also for suppliers, who don't need to register to participate in our sourcing events.

Prokuria has allowed us to implement a Dynamic Allocation auction for our pork meat purchase, taking into account multiple parameters, other than the price. This is an excellent time-saving feature that helped us save a lot of time wasted on filling and handling excel files, composing, sending, and answering emails and phone calls with suppliers. 

Since using Prokuria and its features we succeeded to increase suppliers' engagement and optimal supplier selection, resulting in

  • obtaining better prices

  • tracking suppliers' bids week over week

  • spotting price increase trends.  

This way we minimized human errors and operational risk while introducing a clear auditable process.

What used to take us one day, now takes 30 minutes - 1 hour each week!

Prokuria was easy to implement and use by both our procurement team and our vendors.

The software helps us to successfully bring our suppliers online for requests and reverse auctions.

We also truly appreciate the support we are getting from Prokuria's team, always agile and responsive to our needs.
