Improving the Global Supply Chain through Tech
With a combo of blockchain payments, machine vision and artificial intelligence, bext360’s mission is to “improve the global supply chain for agricultural products.”
Bext360 is currently impacting the coffee trade and small-scale farmers with their complete coffee “suppl(ai)” chain solution that makes it easier for coffee farmers to get a fair price and get paid instantly for their beans.
Coffee buyers can quickly analyse the quality of beans through the “eyes” and help of a mobile robot. Then, the company’s mobile app helps the coffee farmer and buyer negotiate a fair price.
Using blockchain technology, the app and cloud-based software records the source of the beans and who paid what for them. Coffee wholesalers and retailers can also embed the API into their website, marketing, point-of-sale systems and tools to help manage their supply chain.
