Agriculture Commodity Management Software
Manage Volatility and Complex Logistics in Agri-Commodities
Price volatility in commodity markets has become the order of the day. Farmers, originators, traders, and manufacturers that manage agri-commodities, such as softs, grains, oilseeds, livestock, and dairy, have seen prices fluctuate dramatically.
To maximize profits, agriculture companies need to know positions and exposures in real-time. As commodity prices change, they need to see exactly how this affects operating margins in order to take appropriate actions. Throughout the agriculture value chain, real-time information must be tracked on product quality and quantity as the raw materials are transported, processed, and transported again.
Eka is used by three of the four largest global agriculture companies and supports over 70 tier one commodity companies around the world.
