Eka earns top honors in the innovative finance category for its disruptive app-based platform that enables agri-businesses to better manage position and mitigate risks.

Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of digital commodity management systems, was named 2018’s best provider in the “Innovative finance” category at the biggest agriculture trade show – Global Grains, Geneva.

Eka won the award for its revolutionary Digital Commodity Management (CM) Platform that is disrupting the agriculture industry by digitizing the value chain with powerful “out of the box” apps. Driven by machine learning algorithms, these apps allow agri-businesses to manage their risk better with round the clock breach alerts and in-built chat that help traders collaborate better and maximize profits.

Eka is witnessing revolutionary growth on its Digital CM Platform with over 20 commodity businesses switching to app-based workflows. These new customers span all geographies and industries, including industry disruptors like Farmer Business Network and Indigo, co-ops like Foremost Farms and Tereos, trading operations, and government bodies like Coffee Board of India.

Eka’s powerful apps help these businesses manage trade and risk, govern quality, trace food origin and provide better services to farmers, thus empowering them to grow more with less. The app-based platform goes live in just weeks, fueling rapid business growth.

Hosted during the biggest event in the industry calendar, the Global Grain Awards recognize excellence in the global grains and oilseeds community. Entries for the award are assessed by an independent judging committee and ranked against strict award criteria.
