CTRM solutions for cocoa need to handle the general complexities of any particular commodity, along with providing features such as usability, performance and integration. However, cocoa trading has a number of very specific aspects to it that not every CTRM solution will be able to handle with ease, or even at all. We will walk you through some of them, as Agiboo has made it its mission to handle all of them – with Agiblocks.
