eCotton’s Cotton Warehouse System is computer software that greatly simplifies the handling of information associated with cotton warehousing.
Free communication and organizer utility designed to interface with the EWR cotton receipt system. It allows the user to manage his transactions in an automated fashion. It supports web services, socket, and FTP communications.
Comprehensive, mission-critical software to handle every business operation of a cotton gin. It includes extensive record-keeping, reporting, scale interface, scanner interface, communications, USDA interface, EWR receipt system interface, price computations, billing information, customer database, and much more. This easily customizable system is the most popular software of its kind in the cotton industry.
Backup utility which makes it easy for the user to backup any computer files to the offsite SafeBak computer storage site. Scheduled backups can be made unattended and automatically. All communication software is included.
Designed for use by cotton farmers, this app uses the GPS function in a mobile device to identify the location of a cotton module when it is created in a field during harvest. The location coordinates are immediately transmitted to the cotton gin so that a truck can be sent to retrieve the module.
When a farmer sends a truckload of grain to an elevator for storage, information about that load is immediately transmitted from the mobile device to the elevator which then will be expecting the load. When the load is received, the elevator ticket is issued electronically to the farmer who can retrieve that ticket and the associated load information on his mobile device.
Cotton warehouses can record bale locations, verify shipping orders, collect received bales, work a picking list, and verify picking lists using a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and a bluetooth-enabled handheld laser barcode scanner.
Established in 1968, the Louisiana Cotton and Grain Association (LCGA) is the state’s leading agricultural organization whose purpose is to ensure that the cotton and grain industries remain viable, and to advocate on behalf of and maximize profitability for the Louisiana farmer.
On this private site a merchant can determine whether loads which he has ordered from various warehouses have been picked up by the assigned trucking company. The site uses a color-coded table to make it easy for the user to determine the status of loads. A demo is available on the site.
This site allows cotton producers to receive reports from participating gins in relation to the bales from that producer’s fields.
“Large-scale” and “highly-secure” are two characteristics of databases operated by EWR.
The largest database operated by EWR contains cotton receipt records (i.e., ownership title to cotton bales) and is also very secure. The database, which changes daily, contains 20 – 30 million cotton receipt records and 170 – 300 million audit records. 1500 users access this database which is available 18 hours/day, 7 days/week. A single transaction may contain as many as 1 million records. The database is secured tightly so that it can only be accessed by the holders of the title records. EWR’s database is audited every year by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Since 1995 EWR has maintained an electronic receipt system for cotton bales in accordance with federal law. The system keeps the official, legal title to each bale as a record in a highly-secure database. Only the title holders have access to their title records although the system does allow titles to be moved between holders in a variety of ways. Audit records are kept for every transaction on this system.
EWR developed and operates an electronic receipt system for grain. It is similar to the systems for cotton and peanuts in that it maintains the legal title record in the computer system. Title access is restricted to the holder and exchange of title on the system is easily accomplished. An audit trail of every system action is maintained.
2003 was the first year EWR operated an electronic receipt system for peanuts. Like the cotton system, this is a secure database in which the records represent the legal ownership of raw peanuts. Title holders can access their records at any time and titles can be moved between various holders easily. An audit trail is kept of every action on the system.
