Mike kicked off the webinar with a quick overview of cmdtyViewPro the leading procurement, merchandising, and commodity risk management solution across desktop and mobile. 

cmdtyView comes packed with cash grain prices, futures execution, streaming news headlines, and advanced analytics that you can’t get anywhere else.  All of the data in Barchart’s ecosystem is available in cmdtyView Pro (with more content being added regularly)!
