Hidexe debuts its SaaS hide and leather auction platform at LHCA webinar

Worldwide
Published:  18 February, 2021

Hidexe has unveiled its software-as-a-service platform at a well-attended webinar organised by the Leather & Hide Council of America (LHCA) on February 10. The event, hosted by LHCA President Stephen Sothmann, brought together both large and small companies, ranging from meat packers and hide processors to leather tanners and traders.

Hidexe’s integrated suite of applications is aimed specifically at the hide and leather industry and features public or private virtual auctions, sourcing and procurement software, and other CRM/ERP tools enabling professionals to participate in and benefit from an optimised and integrated global digital ecosystem for hide, skins, leather and by-products.

Hidexe’s cloud-based software not only allows platform users to streamline sourcing activities like never before, but also to perform all procurement tasks in one place, from any location, browser or device, in real-time. This makes Hidexe a perfect antidote for Covid-related constraints that have severely restricted the traditional off-line channels.

The feedback from the LHCA presentation was overwhelmingly positive; participants were given a virtual test-drive of Hidexe’s SaaS procurement platform both on the supply and demand side, and from auction creation to documentation and fulfilment. Demonstrated flexibility makes Hidexe relevant for tanneries trading a handful of containers per week, all the way to the major industry players who operate large-scale wholesale businesses. 

The Hidexe procurement journey is simple and intuitive, from signing up (which is completely free) and product definitions, to launching auctions and agreeing freight solutions. The entire process is considerably more effective than the existing off-line approach since all necessary apps and resources are fully integrated and available in one place. Hidexe software fee is purely volumetric (on a per container or truckload basis), which eliminates large fixed costs. Initially, Hidexe will run a free trial period which will give all users (buyers and sellers) a risk-free opportunity to try out the new platform.
