What is GFC?
The design of GFC’s concept is the setting up of a central auction system in Athens, call it the “dealing room”, in which various Fruit & Vegetable lots are sold to the highest bidder using a clock auction system. You have 1 central server system which communicates with all the regionally depots involved in selling the products. In each depot, supplied products are registered with their product characteristics and the right storage location with the dates of receipt indicated. These data are centrally stored. Our selling parties enter the supply they want to sell on the clock system via GFC web portal after logging in successfully. In this way, we will get a certain stock, which can be sold afterwards to the “registered buyers” through the various e-auction sales tools. Afterwards, the information from all these transactions is available on the website of GFC organization for buyers, farmers etc. After being logged in, the client can view his specific data (transactions, catalogues, statistics, and general information). After the sale, the various depots get the necessary tasks and insights about who is going to load what. The back office software makes the necessary finalization of the transactions, follow-up of invoices, payments, statistical reports etc.
