Digital solutions for Supply Chain Management in the agricultural sector are more important than ever, especially now COVID-19 is making it even more difficult to source from small-scale farmers. In collaboration with eProd Solutions, the Africa Agribusiness Academy organizes a webinar to demonstrate practically various features of the eProd ERP platform. During a two-hour webinar, some of the topics covered will be: farmer and field registration (including capturing field GPS locations), field inspections, loan management (including credit scoring and automated repayment via product deliveries), produce collection, quality-based payment and produce traceability, reporting and M&E activities, communication with the farmers including automated weather forecast and production advise.
When: 12th August 2020, from 15:00 to 17:00 EAT
About AAC: The Africa Agribusiness Academy stimulates and supports entrepreneurship toward increased food security in Africa.
Founded in 2010, the AAA is a pan-African business platform for small and medium-sized agri-food enterprises (SMEs). These AAA member companies share and pool their knowledge and experiences, collaborate and form partnerships, support one another, and provide inspiration and guidance for current and up-and-coming agribusinesses, inside and outside of the network.
The AAA supports these entrepreneurs by offering capacity development and training opportunities, marketing, communication and networking support, and facilitating the collaboration and mutual learning of all members.
The expanding AAA is currently active in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Malawi, and Ethiopia, with more entrepreneurs in more countries coming on board soon. Each country has a specific ‘Country Chapter’ which coordinates the activities of that country, while regional “Business Clubs” stimulate tight cooperation between members from the same area. Sector-specific and thematic collaboration is achieved through the five ‘Sector Desks’ (Dairy, Poultry, Honey, Fruits and Vegetables, and Agro-Inputs) with members benefiting from exposure to transnational experiences and knowledge.
