Cost-efficient software solutions

Procure Hides, Skins, Leather & By-products Globally With A Few Clicks

HIDEXE provides software and a surrounding ecosystem of resources that allows users to access to additional channels to source hide & leather products, whilst greatly reducing procurement costs compared to existing, traditional, channels.  The HIDEXE software suite offers you opportunities to establish new trading partnerships and reach new suppliers, not only within your existing supply chains but across entirely new ones. It also provides new opportunities for global procurement, which has been out of reach for many industry participants. Needless to say, HIDEXE is essential for the industry since it offers a convenient way to compare market prices and product availability from a single source.  HIDEXE provides greater transparency, since availability and prices are accessible in an open, competitive, environment. Our on-demand software-as-a-service (SaaS) suite is available 24/7, thus removing time constraints and problems arising from different international trading hours and travel restrictions.

    Onboarding process

    We have designed an easy onboarding system in order to ensure that you can start using HIDEXE within minutes without any need for training. Our services are simple to use and address most of your questions or concerns from the outset.  

    HIDEXE is working tirelessly to develop software tools that are relevant both on the supply and demand side of the hide & leather market.  To that end, we are using our existing relationships to spread the word about the leather & hide ecosystem that we are actively building.  We also aim to standardize the digital ecosystem to the extent possible, both in terms of industry product definitions and legal framework. 

    Hide & leather professionals need to register on HIDEXE.com, and once they create their user profiles and agree to the Terms of Use, they immediately gain access to a number of free SaaS platform tools accessible from a simple user dashboard.  They can use this dashboard not only to procure goods, but also to supply products from their own production or trading portfolio.

    Simply define your procurement search using the pre-designed product templates, filter through the live auctions, and start bidding on virtual auctions within minutes.  If you do not immediately find what you are looking for, you can submit a request for proposal (RFP) and invite other users to provide formal offers.

    Once an auction is finalized, the buyer and the seller can complete the transaction using our automated contract and fulfilment tools.  We support ICHSLTA's efforts to maintain and develop the International Leather Contracts to promote a fair and ethical basis for trade in the sector, and our software automatically generates INTERNATIONAL CONTRACT No. 6 - HIDES & SKINS following a successful auction result.

    HIDEXE encourages industry participants to abide by their contractual and reputational obligations. 

    We would like to remind all users that as soon as a formal bid on a listing is made, in any of the auctions launched using our software, we assume that the market off-takers become legally responsible for ensuring that funds are readily available to pay for the requested Lot(s) in case the bid becomes successful. Once the draft transaction contract is circulated by HIDEXE by electronic means, buyers are expected to follow through with the completion of the transaction without delay and remit the funds according to the terms of the contract.

    We expect our members to comply with the HIDEXE Code of Conduct.  Here are some of our common-sense rules: 

    • Fake biding

    Each virtual auction listing clearly outlines the contractual terms that the supplier has established.  Auction participants should refrain from bidding on any listings if they are concerned that they may not be able to complete the transactions on which they have placed formal bids.  

    • Bid Retraction

    HIDEXE provides bid retraction functionality for an extremely limited set of purposes involving extraordinary ‘fat-finger’ errors and problems in being able to communicate with a seller. Retracting bids for any other reasons, no matter how valid the Auction participant feels them to be, represents a contract violation and may lead to the immediate revoking of HIDEXE software license.

    • Courteous communication

    Frustrated buyers who engage in harassment and disorderly conduct could have their access to the platform revoked.

    • Unauthorized use of information

    Publishing other HIDEXE member’s trading history details, personal information or accusations about other in any form or place, or re-selling information about them without their consent, regardless of the motivation, is prohibited.

    • Pay your bills on time

    HIDEXE Members are expected to pay fees on time and we reserve the right to suspend all accounts that are past due.

  • How it works

    Define Product

    In order to simplify communications between buyers and sellers, HIDEXE has developed product description templates that contain mandatory and optional fields.

    Every product is made at a cost and each is sold at a price. The price that can be charged depends on the market, the quality, the marketing and the segment that is targeted.

  • How it works

    Search & Advertise

    Our search engines are intuitive and simple to use. You can search the market to see similar offerings from other producers, which will allow you to optimize your advertising and pricing strategies. Our system allows you to store the frequently used searches in order to save you time on high frequency repeat transactions.

  • How it works

    Monitor Market Transactions

    All markets experience volatility to some extent. In order to help you better manage your business and mitigate operational risks, we have developed various market monitors to help you understand the current trends in one glance.

  • How it works

    Transact

    We support ICHSLTA's efforts to maintain and develop the International Leather Contracts to promote a fair and ethical basis for trade in the sector, and our platform automatically generates INTERNATIONAL CONTRACT No. 6 - HIDES & SKINS following a successful auction result.
