Streamline Rack Business Operations
The energy trading industry involves buying and selling commodities through ETRM tools like RightAngle. However, standard features may not meet specific business needs. Our expertise offers customized solutions to streamline rack business operations, including managing trading activities, tracking positions, billing customers, and mitigating risks.
Below is how a Rack Deal is performed in RightAngle:
Industry Pain Points
Inefficient operations lead to delays, errors, and increased risk, which ultimately impacted the bottom line of the business. This further leads to challenges in retaining customers as well as acquiring new customers.
Each office has its own additional challenges due to the standard template available in RightAngle, these are:
The deal template is incompatible to capture all the necessary data required by the business. The inability to enter internal purchase and sale deals within the system makes it extremely difficult to capture and manage internal trading activities between different departments or subsidiaries.
Middle office users spend a significant time matching physical trades to the movements, leading to an increased risk of errors and potential delays. With 3rd party tools, the process of capturing rack deals, scheduling them, and handling movements and related BOL files makes the entire process time-consuming.
The unavailability of customized invoice templates like payment type drafts, billing, and cash applications makes the process inefficient and error-prone, leading to delays in payment and potential disputes with customers.
