Vicstock Grain Selects Eka Software for Managing its Agriculture Supply Chain

The world’s leading agriculture trading firms rely on Eka software; four out of the top five agricultural traders are Eka customers.

 

Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of Smart Commodity Management software solutions, announced today that Vicstock Grain has selected Eka’s InSight CM – Site Automation Control software to manage resources at its agricultural grain handling and export facilities. Eka’s integrated automation solution encapsulates all facility processes into a single system, providing unprecedented accuracy in inventory and quality tracking to reduce operating costs.

 

Vicstock Grain is an agribusiness company that exports grain from its Albany port in Western Australia. The company’s farming operations leverage state-of-the-art, modern technology and a team of experts that specialize in cereal grain, cropping, and raising of livestock. Vicstock Grain’s Albany port is Western Australia’s most strategic location for the export of cereal grains and oilseeds, with proximity to farms and a natural harbor. The facility also has extensive capabilities for bulk handling storage.

 

To maximize throughput and efficiency throughout the agriculture supply chain, Vicstock Grain wanted to use the latest technology solution. Vicstock Grain recognized Eka as the industry leader for site automation and optimization and was highly impressed with the vast industry knowledge displayed by the Eka team. Eka had a clear understanding of the needs of Vicstock Grain.

 

Eka’s Site Automation Control software provides real-time visibility into all operations using a comprehensive reporting and analytics suite including operations, productivity, equipment usage, tonnes passed over equipment, run hours, inventory, quality data, and maintenance and delay accounting. With the software, companies have a clear view of stock on hand as well as what’s scheduled to go out.

 

“The largest and most efficient bulk commodity companies in the world use our trading, risk management, and bulk handling software to manage trading and bulk handling operations,” said Wah Chu, Vice President, Global Services & Support, Eka. “Four out of the top five agricultural traders are Eka customers, including Bunge, Cargill, Glencore, and Louis Dreyfus.
