Hedge Management


Manual process are expensive and error prone

Manual processes are cumbersome, and result in greater risk of errors. Along the physical commodity supply chain there are several points of communication, still handled person to person. Transactions are often recorded with pen and paper or a spreadsheet. Often futures and grains back office systems are different platforms.

These manual processes become expensive when they take so much time, they prevent you from expanding your customer base being able to scale.
