Metajua provides a modular solution with the aim of covering all data flow needs for organizations buying agriculture products from and interacting with smallholder farmers.
Implement Externally Verified Supply Chain
Metajua solution is commonly used by organisations that implement externally certified – verified supply chain centered on one or more than one product combined.
Accessible via Mobile & Web Interface
Data entry is done by field staff, through the mobile interface, in offline mode. The web app is used by supervisors, managers, administrators to assign mobile users, review field activity reports, authorize transaction, set price, send bulk SMS messages, etc.
Enhance the Accuracy of Data Collection
In the field, digital scale, and a growing array of sensors (PH meter, water meter…) and printer can also be used to further enhance the accuracy of data collected and farmers experience interacting with the system.
Map and monitor the key assets of your organization in the field.
Identify your bulking centers, warehouses, processing units and export mill either directly owned or belonging to 3rd parties. Cary routine evaluation and audit of your entire supply chain structure before the season, update contact list and equipment status. The organization mapping is used as a pivot to track cash and stock movement during the buying season and visualize farmers’ dispersion within your supply chain.
Farm & Farmers
Register farmers or upload your existing farmers’ database and verify information.
Validate farmers, their farm characteristics and their household, social, economic, and environment data. Assign unique code, print farmer cards, cary internal audit and follow up visits with a sophisticated approval flow mechanism to manage certification data dynamically.
Loan (Cash – Input)

Supply Chain – Inventory
Set daily the price to be used by your agents in the field while buying from registered/ certified farmers. Track cash and stock position at every level of your supply chain including transit from one level to another. Create batch and follow individual batch performance. Track and communicate to your client with full batch/lot traceability.
System, users and archives
You are in charge; set your system preferences, user profiles both mobile and/or web. Monitor staff performance. Close past seasons position (farmer list, batch…) like you would close your past financial year account. Retrieve archived position on demand.
