A Look Inside the cmdty Redefined Webinar


Last week we hosted a webinar titled “cmdty Redefined” with Barchart’s Head of Commodities, Michael Browne and Head of Strategy, Keith Petersen. In the webinar, Keith and Michael discussed the in’s and out’s of cmdty, including how today’s merchandisers are managing their business as well as cmdty’s latest and greatest offerings. Here’s a peak into some of the hot topics that were covered...

Agribusiness Workflow Survey

This year we surveyed leading agribusinesses to better understand how they manage cash grain workflows. We found that the most successful firms are the ones positioning their merchandisers with tools to make smarter, faster decisions.

The webinar explained how cmdty is a great tool for agribusinesses – with access to historical data on over 4,000 individual grain buying locations – and strengths in data collection and management – providing built-in scale for agribusinesses. You can read the rest of the Cash Grain Workflow Survey results here.
