Answering A Common Challenge
A common theme exists for companies throughout commodities trading sectors and end user communities: a real need to consolidate. This consolidation includes the desktop; CTRM environment of systems and spreadsheets, and varying risks including market, operational, and credit risk. Through years of volatile market volatility, regulatory changes, mergers, acquisitions, and growth – systems and processes have become fragmented.
Aspect’s one-platform footprint consolidates everything in the quest to achieve one single system or suite to measure and manage trading and risk. It also easily integrates with best-of-breed and internally developed solutions such as financial and operational systems and external market intelligence providers. This provides extensive benefits including a cost reduction for maintaining multiple systems and a high performing straight-through processing (STP) environment from trade entry to invoicing and settlement. STP automates processes and significantly reduces errors normally associated with multiple entries and touch points of data throughout the supply chain.
Our powerful commodity trading and risk management solution, AspectCTRM, is used by a wide range of companies from small trading, supply and end user organizations to the world’s largest global enterprises. AspectCTRM is flexible and scales to the functional and budget needs of its users. It begins with the out-of-the-box, front-office Lite Edition (LE) designed for small firms, and expands to its Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition (EE) with front, middle and back office functions with integration to other systems such as SAP and Oracle Financials. As companies grow and requirements become more complex, AspectCTRM easily expands to meet those demands without the costs and hassles associated with software installations and replacements.
