“With the creation of the world’s first supply chain graph, Elementum isn’t just disrupting the industry, they’re rewriting the rules.”

Aaron Levie, co-founder & CEO, Box


Every few years or so, there’s a distinct shift in awareness within Silicon Valley; a movement that changes the way we think about technology. The app gold rush, big data analytics, the almighty cloud—all recent examples. But what if there was a shift that affected more than just technology? Think about it—the food on your plate, the shoes you wear, even the medicine you take—they’re all dependent on the functionality of your supply chain. So if you’re waiting for new kicks in 2014, why are you relying on technology from 1992 to get it? You shouldn’t.

And the Valley’s most successful entrepreneurs agree. That’s why they’re bringing their experience and foresight to helping Elementum engage customers of all sectors—consumer, automotive, pharmaceutical, and energy (just to name a few)—to prove that any company in any industry can and should modernize their supply chain.


With a unique approach to supply chain management, Elementum provides bite-sized apps that run on a single platform—optimized for a modern, mobile workforce. And the company’s unique supply chain graph securely shares data within and across enterprises, eliminating millions of dollars in license and integration costs. Customers receive instantaneous visibility and actionable information across multi-enterprise supply chains, offering the control and flexibility not available in legacy systems.

“Elementum is uniquely positioned to transform the way businesses operate by bringing strategic processes from on-premise manufacturing and supply chain to the cloud—greatly enhancing the cloud computing vision for the enterprise.”

Dave Duffield, co-founder & co-CEO, Workday
