Cloud-based supply chain solutions provider Eka announces hiring spree amid strong business growth

New York, 07 April, 2021 | Press Release

Amid significant growth in its commodity and direct materials businesses, Eka Software Solutions, the leading cloud platform for supply chain management, will dramatically increase its global headcount with more than 100 new hires, representing a 25 percent workforce increase.

Eka’s expansion results from an increasing number of commodity management and direct materials enterprises selecting Eka’s Cloud Platform to digitize their supply chains and enhance their resiliency.

With increasing demand for digitalization and end-to-end, cloud-based solutions, Eka experienced a banner year for growth in 2020, achieving a 60% increase in Annual Contract Value (ACV) while adding $70 million in Total Contract Value (TCV).

Eka has a strong focus on product innovation, injecting nearly 30 percent of its profits into research and development. With organic customer growth, combined with new market opportunities through its product roadmap, Eka will expand its customer-facing workforce across product development, sales, delivery and support over the next ten months.

Rajesh Jagannathan, Eka Chief Operating Officer said the company’s rapid growth coincides with an inflection point within the commodity and direct materials space, as companies increasingly shift towards digital solutions for greater resilience and control.

“Eka is focused on redefining the digital experience for our customers by delivering a total, end-to-end platform for commodities and direct materials across agriculture, energy, metals and mining. As we ready ourselves to deliver an expanded product offering, we are actively growing our team to meet the needs and exceed the servicing expectations of our discerning customer base”

Rajesh, COO, Eka Software Solutions.

In the coming months, in line with its goal to provide best-in-class, integrated supply chain solutions to customers, Eka will add more offerings on its Cloud Platform. This includes enhanced commodity trading & risk management (CTRM) solutions and E-sourcing for direct material procurement to help customers improve business resiliency. With increasing focus on ESG reporting and management, Eka will also launch a suite of new sustainability and ESG solutions to visualize ethical sourcing and carbon emissions, monitor strategic use of energy and resources, reduce compliance risk and maintain best practice employee health and safety.

Earlier this year, Eka also rolled out Mission Digital, a comprehensive business and technology strategy to accelerate digital transformation for its customers.Through an agile platform, Eka applies an innovative cloud-driven approach that delivers:

  • a completely automated workflow to drive business resiliency;
  • a simplified interface to support new ways of bringing employees, processes, and technology together in one place; and
  • instant access to multiple buyers and suppliers across the global supply chain.
