RRIMniaga is a smartphone application developed to record rubber transactions used by licensees / buyers / dealers registered under the Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB).

This application can also facilitate existing rubber trading activities where rubber traders are no longer need to purchase receipt books, sales & purchase record books from MRB offices. The use of RRIMniaga will be able to ensure that the rubber transaction process runs smoothly and transparently for the benefit of all those involved in rubber trading.

This application can also facilitate existing rubber trading activities where rubber traders (buying, selling and storing) no longer need to purchase receipt books, sales record books and purchases from MRB offices. The use of RRIMniaga will be able to ensure that the rubber transaction process runs smoothly and transparently for the benefit of all those involved in rubber trading.

Apart from that, RRIMNIAGA plays a role in facilitating the Rubber Production Incentive (IPG) claim where it is directly linked when rubber transactions between smallholders and buyers occur. Smallholders will benefit from IPG without going through a manual process as the RRIMniaga system will record purchase transactions and generate direct purchase receipts electronically. IPG payment will be channeled directly to the applicant's bank account after going through the current review procedure and the IPG activation price is announced by MRB in the following month.

At the trial stage for a period of almost 24 months, the use of RRIMniaga has received a very encouraging response. Looking at the successful use of RRIMniaga at the trial stage, the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities has made it mandatory for all rubber licensees to use this application for all rubber trading transactions starting January 1st , 2021.

As the conclusion, with the RRIMniaga system, rubber trading will be more efficient and at the same time helping rubber smallholders to make IPG claims when the price of rubber is at lower end.
