In an era of connected consumers and disruptive markets, CSM helps maximize the impact of organizations dealing with food and food commodities with digitization, data authentication, and last-mile transactions.
Statistics reveal that by 2050 the world population will be anywhere near 10 billion. That directly hints at an increased land, water, and resource utilization that competes directly with farming needs to feed the population. Furthermore, the need for transparent and sustainable food supply chains increases the impetus on agribusiness to develop transparent, connected, and efficient supply chains.
Food starts with Agriculture at the helm. Farming is the first step of guaranteeing food availability across the markets. Digitization at this level enables better produce for optimum investment. The choice of seeds and fertilizers to soil testing data provides an integrated approach to enhancing farming produce. CSM’s analytics can bridge the knowledge divide and provide precision information for areas to be fertilized, for the seed quality to be procured and the climatic impact on a specific crop.
Monitoring post-harvest produce is another area where thinking beyond the normal, helps optimizes revenue and availability. However, monitoring is easier said than done. CSM partners with the government to start tracking and digitizing each level of stakeholder from the farm-to-plate to ensure transparency in the entire supply chain.
Commodity trading like tea, cotton, oil and other natural resources is a similar area of operations that will be left behind with a significant lack of digitization. Manually intensive processes with numerous shadow spreadsheets are prone to inaccuracies and control issues. CSM has gained expertise in emerging technologies—including blockchain, cognitive computing, and analytics—to address existing disadvantages and create new business value.
Our information-driven, integrated supply chains are enabling governments and organizations alike, to reduce inventory and costs, add product value, extend resources, and accelerate time to market. Our solutions connect the producers with buyers to initiate and sustain long term, mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships.
However, a single technology is not a silver bullet. Rather it is the right combination of solutions and architectures that are the keys to identifying and capturing middle-office automation opportunities. Our solutions can help make improvements in supply and trading processes, value-chain modeling, working capital forecasting, and governance.
