Problem Statement

The company’s goal was to streamline solutions to have one platform for day-to-day ERP across its agribusiness divisions, and to modernise and standardise back-office functions such as financial reporting and sales and purchase orders. However, it was the company’s need for a robust commodity trading solution that drove their choice of ERP.

Solution

Sonata Software’s Commodity CTRM is Microsoft certified for the cloud-based Dynamics 365 platform and dovetails seamlessly with the Microsoft Finance Operations ERP. The solution has been rolled out across clients’ multinational operations, satisfying different fiscal and currency requirements while ensuring systems are standardized, efficient, and geared towards maximizing profits.

Sonata Software’s Commodity CTRM puts contracts at the center of operations. It provides powerful tools for automatically adjusting contract pricing, and responding to changes in any or all quality parameters as crops are harvested and test results become available. Once adjustments are recorded in the contract they are automatically reflected in inventory (warehousing) and invoices (financials).
