Your E/CTRM Software is Important. Shouldn’t You Know More?

London, Prague, September 2014

For many people in our industry, ETRM or CTRM software is something to get frustrated about periodically if, for some reason, screens and reports don’t perform quickly enough or the software isn’t working properly. I know that when I was running the operations of a European power trading operation, the only time anyone showed any interest in the trading software was when there was a problem.

Questions to ask before choosing a CTRM System

London, August 2014

Few actions will impact the future success of your business more than how well you manage your information and collaborate with colleagues and your supply chain. The performance of the Commodity Trade and Risk Management (CTRM) system you choose plays an integral part in this. It won’t matter how good your risk management strategy is if traders don’t follow the guidelines you set. By the same token, you could run your own business brilliantly but still suffer if your suppliers and business partners throughout the supply chain are subpar performers.
