We are the founders of Contaty, and we thank you for your interest in our solution.
We both worked for a number of years in major Brazilian and international food companies and in all areas - production, processing, logistics, research, innovation and commercial - we realized that we spent too much time and money looking for what we needed, often without success.
We were making a huge effort to find, and directing a lot of energy on, solutions that were available, only to discover that what we found were not necessarily the solutions we were looking for, and solutions not being found, opportunities were lost.
Talking with others we saw that the frustration we felt in spending time and money in this type of search was not exclusive to us, but a feeling shared by everyone in their day to day life.
So we came up with idea of providing a service where people could offer and find solutions and opportunities, wherever they may be—simply.
For this Beta version we have used the name Contaty. Once the full service is up and running our users will be able to enjoy an integrated environment that will allow them to share, discover, and seize every opportunity that is available.
We will continue to enhance the functionality of Contaty, always listening to our users, so that we can build the solution we always dreamed of having and being able to use.
If you would like to know more about Contaty please use our contact page. We want to hear what you have to say.
