Together We Create Value

HelloSME’s mission is to help SMEs improve procurement efficiency, security and traceability using our enterprise-grade Blockchain technology. Through the members-only platform, our strategic partners and customers can aggregate demand and perform in-country and cross-border transactions with ease and confidence.

What is FTP

FTP is a horizontal SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) on Blockchain built to enhance closed-loop procurement transactions between buyers and sellers in a seamless manner. As an engine behind two verticals, namely Medical PPE and Semiconductor, FTP provides its trusted buyers and sellers with the benefits of RDS Contract, payment gateway, end-to-end digital integration and KYC in all aspects of its business.

Benefits to SMEs

Based on industry insights, the time spent by buyers/sellers on the procurement process from Purchase Request to Payment can be significant. However, potential savings (processing time) from FTP per year is estimated to be about US$500M, which can significantly help an industry already grappling with razor thin margins.

SMEs are largely known to be paper-intensive, either lacking an ERP system or the IT skills to integrate their systems. Hence, finding lost documents like delivery notes with numerous partial deliveries impacts both productivity and cash flow management.

FTP Features


RDS is a Real Digital Smart Contract which has sophisticated algorithms to track any changes and/or modifying of the contract. Storing any transactional changes on Blockchain makes it secure, reliable and trackable than conventional contracts.


  • Automates repetitive tasks like delivery/overdue payment reminders – time stamped on blockchain.
  • Actual contract is recognized by the common law countries like Singapore & India.


FTP Payment Gateway aims to connect to all payment gateways by offering choices to our buyer/seller in settling payment through PayPal, Stripe, bank transfer. An added feature is digital Escrow that is robust enough to scale from 1,000 to 2M transactions a day.


  • Members are given a choice of payment methods.
  • Integrates with major payment gateways.
  • With digital escrow, SMEs are given added confidence to transact overseas.


FTP Eco-system’s vision is to provide connectivity of the different buyer/seller ERP systems to ensure seamless transactional flow to cut down manual inputs and paper-based transactions. For those SMEs that do not have ERP, a basic, stripped down ERP is embedded in the FTP application.


  • Digital documents are captured from source - cutting out manual inputs.
  • Reduce paper transactions.
  • Basic ERP features are provided free to SMEs with no ERP systems.


From PR -> RFQ -> PO -> SO -> DO -> Invoice -> Payment, FTP automates and captures the entire process in its entirety. Once payment is acknowledged, the RDS contract between the buyer and seller is then considered closed giving a 360-degree view of the entire transactional flow.


  • Entire process from PR to payment acknowledgement is digitized and tracked – cut down manual intervention.
  • Buyer/Seller know where they are in the procurement journey.
  • Scoring of buyer/seller is objective & data-driven.


Based on Hyperledger Fabric Technology that supports permissioned blockchain network, smart contract, data privacy and unique transactional model.


  • Transactional changes are tracked on ledger.
  • Messages & reminders are time-stamped.
  • Secure, scalable and immutable.
  • Accurate scoring is data-driven.


FTP provides basic KYC with KYC partners and 2-factor authentication to verify members’ identity to ensure transactions are legit and above board especially cross-border transactions – one of the key ask of SMEs.


  • Provided free to SME members when they register.
  • SMEs now can feel comfortable that overseas SMEs members have their background checked before transacting.
