AfricaTradeApp is a cloud-based commodity management system designed specifically for the African landscape. The system is self-contained and highly scalable. It is easy to use, to maintain and has low bandwidth overhead. This makes it ideal for remote areas with poor connectivity.

AfricaTradeApp caters for multiple commodity, financing and market parameters. It integrates with local banks for financing and calculates all financing, storage, transport, insurance and commission costs. On the sale of product, the system manages the settlement of monies across all stakeholders involved in each transaction.

Transactions run according to pre-configured workflows to minimise training needs. These are linked to user roles to provide strong security and segregation of duties. It was originally created for grain commodity markets in Mozambique and Zambia. It therefore provides a multilingual interface for the various languages spoken in those areas.

Oracle awarded AfricaTradeApp its 2015 and 2016 Global Excellence Award for sustainability innovation. This is an international recognition of the application's value to the economic and social upliftment of the local communities in these countries.
