Enabling your multi-party transactions

#dltledgers

Traditional Trade & Supply Chain processes struggle with a lack of transparency, visibility & adequate risk-monitoring, in-turn driving a financing gap between capital starved institutions and banks. Covid-19 has accelerated the widening of this inter-entreprise gap amidst a change in deep-tier financing demands from both institutions and banks.

#dltledgers is an integrated digital solution that delivers transparency, visibility & adequate risk-monitoring in real-time is the need of the hour to address financing disequilibria. An extended solution with regulatory participation will close the loop, significantly improving the ability to detect & prevent double financing & other fraudulent activities.
