cotton commodity management


Building on our CEO and Founder’s history as a cotton trader, and Gen10’s 20 years of experience in delivering commodity management technology to the cotton supply chain, Gen10 apps solve the problems your business is facing, with the controls you need to protect against operational and market risk.

With the work we have done with the likes of Louis Dreyfus, Cargill, CSITC, the USDA & ICAC’s HVI standardisation project, as well as leading insurance and inspection companies in the business, you can be sure we have covered all the bases for your digital transformation.

Logistics management down to the bale

Manage your contracts in the weights and currencies that matter to you and your trading partners with technology that goes beyond CTRM.

Gen10 technology automatically converts between multiple bale sizes, weight measurements and grades/HVI data as you progress each trade, for complete position reconciliation, automatic pricing and invoicing.

Control stock

Manage multiple shipments in one contract. Trace virutal lots through your entire process, whether they get split, merged or damaged.

Streamline HVI data

Automatic interfaces with laboratories help manage your HVI data down to the bale level while you can still keep manual classing processes and comparisons. Inspect each bale individually or as a shipment and automate pricing premiums based on your quality grades.

Improve operations

Automatically generate and organise your contract and shipping documents. Email orders directly from within the system and set team reminders for important deadlines. Streamline operations to improve asset turnover and make your credit lines work harder for you.

Build sampling and inspections into your automated workflows

Quality metrics include hierarchical grades and all HVI parameters

inspection audit

Maintain a clear audit of inspections for every bale or virtual lot

contract management

Comprehensive records are automatically attached to each contract

Automatically recalculate pricing and invoicing based on inspections and different contract terms

Automated pricing, invoicing & insurance reporting

Reduce the risk of errors and omissions from repeated data entry. The Pricing Engine uses the principles of Robotic Process Automation to accelerate pricing, approval and invoicing processes, so that you can get paid quicker.

Calculate premiums and discounts

Add premiums and discounts for a range of attributes and units, including location, crop year, staple and colour grade.

Automation applies this pricing in real-time as you change forward months, contract terms and other variables for quick and easy What-If analysis.

Live reporting

Instantly view your Live P&L and Mark-to-Market, including logistics costs. Generate position and cash flow reporting instantly for your banks and insurance company or even grant them restricted access for greater transparency.

Position visibility for profitability

Live position visibility allows you to make quicker, better-informed decisions and ensure your credit lines are working for you.

Create your own dashboards to monitor your key metrics, including counterparty risk, shipment workflows, and volumes by grade, location, supplier and more.

Gain instant insight into your global open net position, Mark-to-Market, P&L and hedging, all updated whenever you take action.

Sustainability & traceability

From supplier surveying and onboarding to managing certification across complex transactions, manage traceability across your supply chain.

Track certificates across contracts, ensure all mandatory documents are attached before shipments are processed and set renewal notifications before certificates expire.

“Gen10 understand our business, our workflows and
our reporting needs and it shows in their well-designed platform.”
