A commission agent is one of the major stakeholders at a sabzi mandi. They are commonly referred to as arhityas and play an important role in daily mandi dealings. Commission agents are in constant touch with buyers and sellers. They spend the majority of the day with manual bookkeeping. (maintaining paper-based account ledgers.) It is not easy to maintain paper-based ledgers. Any unfortunate incident due to negligence, manual error, pests (e.g. termites), natural calamities, etc. could hamper their work. Hence, commission agents are now gradually moving to online accounting for better management of their operations and transactions.
A paper-based account ledger needs to be manually filled and cannot be accessed from outside the mandi. Sharing them with anyone is a tough task. Also, keeping track of transactions or managing inventory is not easy. To see the details, the commission agents need to flip pages or flip through multiple books.
ChargeERP, a product by India’s no.1 Agritrading startup, Bijak, could be the potential solution for all the concerns. It is an accounting software designed to increase the effectiveness of the commission agent’s mandi operations. With ChargeERP, commission agents can easily track and record daily transactions, generate invoices, manage crates and a lot more. It is a useful platform and the person doesn’t require any technical or accounting expertise to operate it.
Let’s get to know the benefits of ChargeERP.
1. Record keeping & stock maintenance
Commission agents can easily maintain a track of dealings with all the associated companies. Using the ‘Arrivals’ section, arthiyas can easily manage inventory. They can record the details of all the items received from the suppliers in ‘Arrivals’. Similarly, using the ‘Quick Sale’ or ‘Daily Sale’ section, they can keep a record of daily sales. Commission agents can also do crate management.
2. Multi-user access
Once a user registers on the ChargeERP platform, he becomes the ‘Super Admin’. Generally, the person registering would be the owner of the business. The ‘Super Admin’ can add his employees as ‘Users’. He can further give the user permissions to View, Create, Edit or Delete records.
3. End-to-end encryption
With an online platform, the major concern is data security. This is where end-to-end encryption plays a major role. ChargeERP comes with end-to-end encryption. This means that your data is stored safely. No one can view it unless authorised. As the data is stored using cloud technology, it can be securely accessed anytime and anywhere.
4. User-friendly and accessible
ChargeERP is based on extensive market research done with various mandi stakeholders, hence the software is very user-friendly. The commission agent doesn’t require any technical or accounting expertise to operate it. They just need to sign up, log in and they can use it right away. As ChargeERP is a cloud-based platform, it can be used from anywhere, and from any device.
5. Bills and Report generation
With ‘Bills and Reports’ section, commission agents can easily create seller or customer bills. The commission agent can generate 6 types of bills and reports:
- Seller Bill
- Customer Bill
- Outstanding Report
- Collection Report
- Account Ledger
- Absent party list
The bills and reports are self-explanatory. The ‘Absent Party List’ shows the name of customers or suppliers with whom the commission agent hasn’t done business in the past 90 days.
6. WhatsApp Integration
The commission agent can easily receive bills and reports over WhatsApp. They can then share it with their suppliers, buyers, and business partners. It’s easy, quick, and convenient.
