About Valkre (val-krē)

Valkre Solutions is a Chicago-based software and services company with a single purpose: To help B2B companies meet the new demands of customer engagement and drive growth. We began developing our SaaS solution around a methodology we called Customer Value Creation. The name Valkre was a play on the words “Value Creation” and “Valkyrie.” In Norse mythology Valkyries are the maidens who determine winners and losers of battle, bringing the winners to Valhalla. We liked the analogy that our company empowers B2B companies to win with their customers through Value Creation.

Today, we have developed a breakthrough customer engagement platform. RENDER is the cloud-based SaaS solution that brings speed, structure, and scale to three critical customer engagement activities: articulating differentiated value, understanding customer challenges, and creating new customer value.

With proven success at GE, Owens Corning and other winning B2B companies, RENDER easily offers 10X return-on-investment. Companies are experiencing tangible commercial benefits from this new class of software, including better selling, smarter customer-informed decisions, increased market share and profitable growth.
