Agriculture | Online Harvest Trading in Between Sellers and Buyers

Agriculture

About the Client:

We worked with a start-up company in India that buys and sells crops online through an auction process involving buyers (traders or commission agents), farmers, and shopkeepers

Challenges:

The company faced the following challenges while establishing manual communication between farmers and traders before digital transformation:

  • Due to a lack of trader participation in buying crops, farmers were forced to reduce crop prices
  • Traders were not getting quality products
  • There were missing documents and contracts between farmers and traders
  • It was not possible to track the delivery of crops to the trader's storage facility
  • There was a delay in payments after crops were purchased

The Objectives – Digital Transformation Process:

Based on challenges, the client's primary goal for digital transformation consisted of:

  • A platform for online auctions allowing traders and farmers to buy and sell crops online at competitive prices
  • Facilitate online order generation between farmers and traders
  • Monitor the delivery of crops and provide a status report
  • Use the online payment system for quick and transparent payments

SNAK – From Evolution to Implementation:

For digital transformation, SNAK Team implemented the following actions:

  • Build an online mobile auction platform where Buyers will initiate their request and farmers (sellers) will place the quotes.
  • Once the buyer has decided on a price, he selects the quote and generates a purchase order for the seller.
  • The seller delivers the crop to the buyer's storage facility
  • Buyers can keep track of deliveries online
  • After receiving the crops, the buyer makes payment online to the seller
  • Payments are sent to the seller's bank account online

Platforms/Technology used:

  • React JS
  • Node JS
  • MYSQL DB
  • React Native
  • HTML5 and CSS
  • Java Script
  • Reporting

  • Quotes from any part of India can be received online
  • Accept competitive prices as deemed necessary by buyers
