Al Bogari General Trading LLC, a Dubai based company involved in export, import, trading and re-export of general merchandise including chemicals and foodstuffs with specialization in export of dates selected Eka to manage their commodity trading business.

They were looking for a web based system that could handle the specific nuances of International Trade right from managing their physical trading, position, P&L, risk, logistics and finance operations.

Increasing the productivity of their Traders and Managers was another matter of concern. The volumes of business coming in required them to ensure that they devote most of their time on business activities rather than working on and maintaining huge spreadsheets by automating the different processes.

Another area of concern was the lack of availability of real time information. They needed a system that would guarantee the availability of updated real time information across the organization that would enable better decision making and maximize profitability.

After a couple of detailed sessions with various solution providers, Al Bogari selected Eka, as it provided the best fit in helping to streamline their business operations by taking care of all their requirements. These include handling the numerous types of products that they deal in, each with various classifications and sub-classifications, provide updated Position information, handle shipment both in bulk and containers, provide real time information about the cargo status, handle the financial invoicing and settlements, generate the required documentation at each stage of the contract life cycle, evaluate the performance of different business units and provide the required MIS reports.
