Unigrain Commodities, Randfontein, South Africa implemented a new business software system today. Unigrain operates a commodity trading company that includes operations from various points across South Africa. A key part of the new system is AGRIS agri-business industry leading software from John Deere AGRI Services, USA including AGRIS commodity software that manages forward contracts, SAFEX positions, stocks, transport costs, supplier payments and customer billing. The Deere financial software consolidates Unigrain business transactions into AGRIS debtors, creditors, cash book and general ledger on one technology platform.

Unigrain chose AfriSoft because they understand agri-business and they are the local experts when it comes to using AGRIS software. AfriSoft designed and built a Traders Deal Sheet and Payment Advisor applications that “bolt on” to the AGRIS software. These specialized software applications were developed to meet specific Unigrain requirements and they offer streamlined workflow for Unigrain staff as well as business controls deemed to be critical to the Unigrain business.
