Biomass and Bioenergy Procurement: When ETRM isn't enough

Utility companies and power generators have access to a wide range of software solutions that can help them improve operational efficiency and process data faster, from generation optimisation to logistics scheduling. With many software products offered by a wide range of vendors, and new options emerging regularly, it can be difficult to know which technologies are necessary, which are no longer as effective as they used to be and which would not add value if implemented.

Ecosystems are the future of commodity management software

Collaboration is an essential ingredient for success in the digital age, as we explored in a recent whitepaper. But for the business to work better through collaboration between teams, their technology also needs to be collaborative. With many different business functions all using technologies that meet their specific needs, and every organisation using unique processes, one single commodity management platform cannot power every aspect of this collaboration.

Biomass generators need contract management technology

Biomass power generation provides many benefits to producers and consumers. But as with any fuel type, it has its own unique challenges, whether in a unit converted from the use of coal or in a purpose-built biomass facility.

Ensuring effective systems integration in the oil industry

The benefits of an integrated ETRM

With the complexity of the oil industry and the myriad software systems which underpin it, software upgrades, integrations and replacements have traditionally been characterised as a painful, slow and expensive process and it is no wonder that it has been avoided or postponed if at all possible.

Risk management and reporting; why the biomass-to-bioenergy supply chain needs commodity management apps

Reducing operational risk, improving reporting & compliance and bringing operating costs down are some of the most important challenges faced by organisations across the biomass-to-bioenergy supply chain.

Why one size does NOT fit all in commodity management

Every commodity business is different depending on your supply chain position, commodity and internal processes. Gen10 understand how important it is to support these differences in our technology, and we have developed our entire approach to ensure any Gen10 apps you implement have the flexibility to work with the realities of your day-to-day activities.

Replacing an E/CTRM? How "One App at a Time" can provide a better implementation journey

Organisations using legacy CTRM and ETRM technology are often missing out on a wide range of business opportunities due to a lack of agility and poorer data visibility than their competitors. As margins continue to decrease, creating faster trade cycles and generating more value from every trade are more important than ever, and it is the organisations undergoing digital transformation that stand to create this value.

Why add commodity management apps to an ETRM?

Although CTRM and ETRM systems have many features in common, and are often referred to as E/CTRM, each system is designed to solve different problems, and as such, can sometimes leave businesses without all the functionality they need to truly get the most out of their technology investment.
