âWe needed a product with the capability to manage our diverse business operations â origination, trading, domestic, exports and imports, risk management, storage and distribution. Equally important, we were looking for a company that has the development and delivery organization that will be there as a long term partner for AWBâs growing needs. After a highly detailed vendor selection process, we choose Eka. What clearly differentiates Ekaâs product is that it is designed from the ground up as a system for meeting the physical requirements of the global agri business. This is very unique and unlike other products in the marketplace that are âadaptedâ from other commodity markets. Ekaâs technology platform is ârealâ and âcurrentâ - pure JAVA and Web 2.0. And their professional, transparent approach to the whole engagement makes us feel very comfortable in working with them.â Says Byron Collins, General Manager â Technology & Business Services, AWB.
The Eka solution will be used to manage all commodity operations including physical trading, domestic and export logistics operations, storage and consolidation, risk management, finance and business intelligence, including interfacing with SAP.
Manav Garg, CEO & Founder of Eka, adds: âWeâre thrilled to be working with AWB. It cements Ekaâs position as the number 1 solution for the agri commodities business. Managing complex global operations in churning markets and its associated risks is a huge challenge for any company. You need a highly responsive, sophisticated, and technologically evolved product, and Eka is uniquely placed in its abilities to meet these challenges. We look forward to rolling out the solution globally for AWB.â
