2. Grain Bid Assessments 

For agribusinesses that want to take it to the next level, our cash grain bid assessments and forward curves provide streaming fair values for physical grain and can be used to value your inventory or make better pricing decisions.

3. cmdtyView 

​​Physical grain trading, futures execution, and advanced analytics delivered to the only front-end you'll ever need. Simplify your workflows by managing your cash business, futures execution, and analytics in one place - all pushed seamlessly into your post-trade systems.  cmdtyView allows users to analyze data, make a decision, and then quickly put it into action.

4. Marketplace 

Provide your producers with a fully branded mobile app that connects them with your business wherever they are. With seamless integrations to the merchandiser's desktop and your grain accounting system - the choice is easy.

With contract data from your accounting provider, your producers will know exactly where they stand. Here are some of our integration partners:

With Marketplace apps, grain contracts for matched offers are automatically issued, providing real-time contract information to your producers in the palm of their hand. Producers can then sign and return the contract, all without leaving their elevator’s branded app.  Schedule a demo here to learn more!
