Agriculture Trading Software
Manage Volatility and Complex Logistics in Agri-Commodities
Unprecedented volatility in softs, grains, feeds, edible oils, oilseeds, livestock, and other agri-commodities along with the need for real-time information throughout the supply chain are key challenges faced by agriculture companies.
It is no longer sufficient for agriculture companies to rely on first-generation commodity management software that provides only monitoring and reporting of historical data; commodity market participants need agricultural commodity trading software that also includes advanced analytics.
Eka is used by four of the top five global agriculture companies and supports over 70 tier one commodity companies around the world.
