In rapidly industrializing regions of Asia and Africa, over 70% of citizens live in rural towns and villages where coordination of off-grid commerce is problematic. Here, logistical performance is low, and operating costs are higher than necessary.

It delivers inventory tracking, order management, automated alerts, optimized opportunistic decision support, and analytics for increasing profitability and improving service.
