Sentinel Automated Inventory Management System

Further. Faster. Better.

Giving physical commodities markets greater visibility, accountability and efficiency

Automated Digital Inventory and Collateral Management

Across the physical commodities market people worry about manual paper based processes, high operational costs and fraud. Sentinel automates many of the key processes involved in the management, financing and settlement of physical deliveries, removing the need for paper and reducing risk of error or malpractice.

Sentinel provides tools for managing physical deliveries on and off exchange. It is a modular software automation framework for the management of key business processes from the registering of assets using warehouse receipts, warrants or certificates, to the transfer of title which connects producers, storage companies, commodity owners, brokers and financing banks.

It is available as subscription based software and has four core modules:

Digital inventory

Simplifies process around title transfer and depository management for physical commodities on and off exchange

Rent and grading

Automates many of the manual processes surrounding the physical delivery of commodities

Financing & collateralisation

Unlocks value in physical commodities for short term loans, repos and other structured financing

Settlement
