“The entire Eximware team is extremely proud of our CQI partnership, now entering its 4th year,” noted Andy Dimitri, Eximware’s CEO. “For over 20 years, Eximware has been partnering with global commodity entities at all levels of the value chain – export, import and final processing. Coffee was our very first vertical served and remains one of our largest. This partnership with CQI is entirely consistent and aligned with the shared values of our two organizations. We are delighted to do our part in gratitude to the global coffee community.”
For CQI, Eximware is a critical IT business partner that provides the technical infrastructure, software development and ongoing support of CQI’s global IMP and is also able to meet the evolving needs and demands of the CQI organization.
“CQI will emerge from the pandemic in a position to quickly get on the ground working with coffee communities and our extensive Q network in general with help from this donation from Eximware,” according to CQI Chief Executive Officer Tina Yerkes, PhD. “We appreciate that Eximware recognizes the need to support our work by contributing to our investment in IT. This investment allows CQI to provide global scale and reach in the most efficient manner possible. Donations to Coffee Quality Institute directly result in broader delivery of training and education which, in turn, results in improved circumstances and outcomes for coffee producers, the lifeblood of the industry.”
The Coffee Quality Institute IMP is an information-rich destination and repository for the thousands of Q Graders and Q Processors across the world. This platform provides certifications tracking, global course offerings, and listings of certified Q-Graded coffee. As CQI expands its offerings, the IMP will continue to provide leverage so that we can continue to grow our work and impact in related segments of the value chain.
“Having to pause our regular activities because of the pandemic has been a little scary, but it has also given the staff of CQI the opportunity to think strategically about next steps,” Yerkes continued. “Eximware is helping CQI ensure that when we emerge from this global pandemic we will be prepared to resume the level of service and support our valued members have come to expect from CQI and for that we are grateful to our friends at Eximware.”
