2020 has been a year unlike anything any of us have experienced before. COVID-19 continues to have a catastrophic impact around the globe, affecting all of our businesses to some degree. Jobs have been lost, schools and communities shut down, and working from home for long periods – or for good - has become normal during the pandemic.
As we head towards year-end, with recent hopeful news of vaccines in development, we are all looking to the future to see what 2021 will bring. At Nui Markets, we’ve seen a large increase in both trading volumes and interest in digital channels to market for B2B agri companies. We’ve also been very busy fine-tuning improvements to our offering and several new exciting developments that will be released on Monday, November 23.
In short, things have been busy here and this update shares what we’ve been focusing on.

We're continually trying to refine and improve the user experience. As part of our ongoing User Experience Initiative we’re rolling out a number of modifications to how the platform works. I’ve highlighted below two of the newest improvements that you will notice from Monday onwards.
In addition to the current market overview, we now have a new marketplace view, providing you with these key features:
We put a high value on user feedback, listening carefully and learning, and always looking to offer a solution. Accordingly, we have made a change to some of the terminology that we use across platforms.
To standardise our delivery address terminology on the platform, we’ve changed the name of Warehouses to Locations. To view/edit Locations, just navigate to the menu (three dots to the right of Orders and Trades) and select Locations.
We’ve also made the terminology more specific in some places, including the New Order form and Order/Trade details. These are now called Delivery from and Delivery to, reflecting the From location and To location of the order or trade.
