Haggle was featured in Startup Ottawa Blog.
Haggle was created by three members of the Telfer Executive MBA's Class of 2016, Deepali Bhatt, Jamie Beaudry and Chaba Sabo as an outcome of research they had completed for one of their projects regarding SMEs.
'Our “a-ha!” moment came when we were sitting in a pub in downtown Ottawa as a part of class gathering and discussing the plight of SME and our own business achievements.'
Haggle is one of the newest additions to the procurement industry and is providing the industry with a new business model for their services. It is a low-cost and flexible local procurement company for private SME, leveraging the global marketplace to negotiate the best deal for clients and delivers savings by multi-sourcing the procurement items.
