The majority of supply chain solutions currently available on the market do not successfully close the gap between local laborers and the end-state of the resources they produce. Daisy-chaining the management of a supply chain between multiple software and out-of-band processes leads to a lack of resilience and incomplete context in proper record keeping and settlement. Support for recent advances in tracking hardware has been treated as an afterthought rather than a foundational part of traditional supply chain solutions. This is extremely problematic when managing soft commodities with delicate standards.
The Indigi blockchain resolves these gaps by allowing for greater flexibility in user type, native support for tracking hardware, and a better engineered collection of gateways that allow us to capture the complete context and resilience of a generalized supply chain solution with all the efficiency of vertical-specific supply chain solutions. This flexibility is critical to establishing things like providence, which rarely is able to be established at the last mile (i.e. on the ground at the point of the resource’s origination by a local laborer). Further, the system’s ability to plug into new markets iteratively through the addition of gateways is core to its architecture, and means software improvements lead to commercial improvements.
