DVT has been contracted by automated trading solutions company, iTRADEpro, to build, implement and support specialised software that replaces an existing manual trading process.
Peter Versfeld, CIO of Redwood Third Party Processing, the major shareholder of iTRADEpro, says: “We chose DVT to do the analysis and development project after a stringent RFP process, making our decision on the basis of professionalism, project delivery history and strength of resources.”
Sasha White, GM of iTRADEpro, adds: “We built the system from scratch, using the latest technical and business concepts available. DVT was an integral part of our team and provided a complete outsourced software development solution. DVT worked according to a fixed-price contract, and the system was delivered within budget.”
iTRADEpro’s solution is an innovative concept that automates the buying and selling of large quantities of protein products (meat, poultry and fish) in the South African market. The system was designed to replace a traditional, manual process with an efficient computerised solution that provides both buyers and sellers with rapid access to more trading information.
* An outsourced administrative solution.
* All the necessary backup for buyers and sellers.
* Product-related business intelligence and management information.
* A logistics management capability to schedule any transport requirements.
Built with flexibility in mind, the iTRADEpro application can easily be configured to trade more than just protein products, and offers users a degree of customisation through the use of system templates.
The iTRADEpro system connects buyers and sellers in a virtual world, and manages the business process in an effective, efficient manner that ensures the buyers obtain their stock at the best price and sellers are paid.
DVT provided an outsourced software development solution on a fixed-price basis. The solution was built using Java technologies, and deployed the JBPM business process management toolset that governs many of the workflows and business processes, as well as JBoss SEAM integration.
Chris Wilkins, CEO of DVT, says: “We worked hard to deliver the iTRADEpro solution, and the reward has been a system that provides iTRADEpro with everything it needs to introduce new technology and ideas into a dynamic marketplace. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with iTRADEpro."
