Origin Grain Selects Eka for Agriculture Commodity Trading & Risk Management

Gains real-time visibility across the enterprise, improved stock management, and more profitable trade decisions.

 

 

Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of Smart Commodity Management software solutions, announced today that Origin Grain has selected Eka’s Smart Commodity Management platform to manage commodity trading and risk management for its agricultural operations. Origin Grain is undergoing rapid growth and requires an advanced software platform that provides complete transparency across all stock positions to deliver greater customer value and more profitable trading.

 

Origin Grain is a team of marketing professionals with extensive knowledge of the grain industry. Operating in APAC and Australia, Origin Grain provides sustainable marketing solutions for grain growers, linking them with consumers locally and abroad.

 

Eka’s fully integrated multi-commodity trading and risk management software platform covers all aspects of a transaction lifecycle including trading, risk management, processing, scheduling, logistics, and accounting. The software is suitable for a wide range of agri-commodities including grains, oilseeds, dairy, livestock, feed ingredients, biofuels, and fertilizers. By providing up-to-date, accurate information throughout the supply chain, the software helps agriculture companies better manage volatility in commodity prices, and see positions and exposures in real-time. With scenario analysis that shows the effect of potential changes on a company’s operating margin, agricultural companies can maximize profits.

 

“Before founding Eka, I started my career as a coffee trader, so the agricultural markets have always been a passion of mine, and an important part of Eka’s business,” stated Manav Garg, CEO and Founder of Eka. “Some of the largest agricultural trading companies in the world, including Cargill and GrainCorp, use our Smart Commodity Management platform, and I am pleased to welcome Origin Grain to the Eka family.”
