Virtual Contract Signing for Grain Now Available through Marketplace

As a leading provider of data, digital, and workflow solutions to the agribusiness community, we are committed to providing tools that make grain buying and selling easier than ever before.  We’re excited to announce that we’ve furthered our support for US agriculture through the release of eSign  - providing a completely digital workflow for grain contracting between grain buyers and producers.  

Our elevator-branded apps connect your merchandisers to producers by providing access to scale tickets, contracts with eSign, balances, settlements and offers right on their phone.  With a network of digitally connected agribusinesses representing more than 500 grain buying companies and over 3,000 individual grain elevators, the introduction of digital signatures makes Marketplace a one-stop-shop for contract execution, storage and delivery.

eSign connects cmdtyView, our desktop and mobile platform for grain merchandisers, with Barchart’s elevator-branded apps, and now enables grain buyers to issue paperless grain sale contracts, digitally accept offers for grain, chat with farmers in real-time, and view and manage producer data through the broadest ERP connectivity on the market.  To issue a contract for signature, simply select “Request Signature” in the eSign module within cmdtyView, select the farmer you want to issue the contract to, upload your contract, and then send directly to their Marketplace app via push notification.  

With the introduction of eSign, we are taking our service to the next level, and doing so as a committed partner to their business.  With elevator-branded Marketplace apps, best-in-class commodity analytics, and the broadest agriculture content ecosystem available, Barchart provides grain buyers with the most comprehensive suite of agribusiness solutions to grow their business.  To get started, contact us at or schedule a demo.
