Mr. Edvin Varghese, Founder & CEO at Appface Technologies said, "We are
immensely pleased to be chosen by Microsoft for their 'Code For Honor' award.
It is a valuable recognition for the hard work put in by our entire team."
The mobile app is targeted primarily at farmers residing in rural areas of
India.Indian farmers do not have many choice of alternate markets and they
are not able to sell their produce at best prices within expected time.The
farmers will be able to share their produce information along with the
pricing, date of produce, and location of availability, contact numbers etc.
on the mobile app. The app is designed in such a way that small traders will
also be able to utilize the mobile app for finding new customers for the farm
produce they are dealing in. The Mandi Trades apps are available on Android,
Windows and Apple Phones.
The Mandi Trades suite of apps is a 'Bottom of Pyramid' solution which will
empower farmer communities and is in line with the finance minister Arun
Jaitley's recent instructions to states to delist fruits and vegetables from
the agriculture produce marketing committees to control food inflation.
Seena Edvin who developed the unique concept of 'Farm to Shop App' says the
agriculture marketing sector is untouched by technology and requires massive
investments for modernization, to reduce wastage and improve efficiency.
Appface Technologies Pvt Ltd is in discussions with investors to enhance
'Mandi Trades' further into vernacular languages, include price alerts and
conduct awareness campaigns among farmer communities across the country.
