Appterra Introduces the First Mobile Collaborative Commerce Platform


January 27, 2015, DALLAS, TX      

Today Appterra, Inc. announced availability of the first Mobile Collaborative Commerce system.  Appterra’s UBI (for Ubiquitous), enabling mobile collaborative processes like never before.

“We originally envisioned UBI as a way to extend our existing connectivity solution to mobile providers” said Fasih Hussain, of Appterra.  “What we’ve found is we’re now able to automate completely new processes that were manual or required expensive specialized equipment”.

Appterra’s first mobile solution is focused on the complexities of managing grain shipments for grain traders, farmers and other supply chain participants in the agriculture industry.   The system allows users to automate and streamline the process of requesting freight quotes, dispatching and assigning drivers, gathering real time documentation and feeding that information back into company’s internal systems.      Now, what previously took weeks, occurs in seconds transforming a previously manual process to real time integration with no capital expenditure

Our Trade Logistics Solution addresses key challenges in commodity trading organizations:

  • Assignment of shipping loads to available drivers
  • Secure document capture
  • Automated routing of shipping documents / bills of lading/weigh scale tickets to the back office
  • Allows freight companies to submit invoices immediately
  • Reduces days to invoice for all participants of the value chain

UBI extends the capabilities of Appterra’s Collaborative Commerce platform, which allows organizations to seamlessly connect, transform and share information with their suppliers, customers and partners.   Appterra’s platform today powers some of the largest and most complex b2b ecommerce solutions in the world.    “Extending the capabilities of ubiquitous connectivity to ubiquitous access is a game changer for our customers.” said Charlie Alsmiller, CEO of Appterra.
