4 reasons why offering list spreadsheets are at risk of extinction

Here is how we think Hub will change the way traders present their coffee and buyers find their coffee.

 

We understand that finding, comparing, and analyzing green coffee for purchasing is complicated. Coffee information is often unorganized and difficult to access. As a green coffee buyer, you must ‘hunt’ for sellers. Once you find a seller, you must search through old spreadsheets and PDF documents to find their coffees. 

Cropster Hub redefines trader offering list with ‘Shops’.It creates a comprehensive package for sellers to promote green coffees. A shop combines the company policies + info + logos  + list of coffees offered with links to complete coffee lot profiles. Traders can showcase comprehensive information about the coffee’s quality, producer, and availability.

Quoting Andy Newbom from IP Coffees  - one of our first seller’s on Cropster Hub upon the release of Hub - “Here is to a quick death to the spreadsheet offering list!” 

We agree with Andy. Here is how we think Hub will change the way traders present their coffee and buyers find their coffee.

 

  • Real-time coffee lot information. Once you email a spreadsheet, it is out. There is no getting it back. You can edit mistakes on Cropster Hub. You can remove a few bags after a sale. Your clients see the most up-to-date version. 
  • Comprehensive coffee lot information. You are constrained in a spreadsheet. Whatever fits in the small rectangle is what you can display. Cropster Hub provides a framework for you to write up about how elegant and unique each of your coffees are. 
  • Filtering and sorting through an entire list of coffees. There is no format and no rules in a spreadsheet. It is complicated for a buyer to compare information coffees. Cropster Hub saves coffee buyers having to piece together information between spreadsheets.
  • Simplified coffee ordering. Hub makes the search and purchase easier for every coffee from the missing espresso component to a 90+ geisha. Extensive filtering, comprehensive lot profiles, simplified sample request, and in-app messaging make the hunt in Hub seamless and quick from discovery to requesting.
