Aspect Enterprise Solutions Named #1 Cloud CTRM Solution In Energy Risk Software Rankings Report

06 April 2017

NEW YORK, NY – 6 April, 2017: The annual Energy Risk Software Rankings Report announced its findings from its annual survey of top energy and commodity trading and risk management software and data management vendors, naming Aspect Enterprise Solutions number one for cloud-based ETRM and CTRM software solutions globally. Aspect Enterprise Solutions was also ranked second for ease of implementation, and among the top five for oil trading systems.

The past three years have been record years for Aspect Enterprise Solutions, as it has become a disrupter in an industry where traditional software vendors are seeing their businesses decline due to the now widely adopted use of cloud technology, which is packed with numerous benefits in terms of cost, upgrades, maintenance, and delivery.

“Being ranked number 1 in the business for what we do is an achievement we’re proud of,” says Aspect Enterprise Solutions CEO Steve Hughes. “Our team of experts, and our well-designed software is ready to take its place among the top of all vendors globally.  AspectCTRM and AspectDSC were written as web-based applications 17 years ago, before the industry was ready for cloud. We’re proud to be recognized for our leading technology.”

Aspect’s functional expertise, rapid implementation and proven scalability all play an important part in its success, and the success of its clients who trade oil, biofuels, coal, metals, petrochemicals, and some agricultural products. Deployments can be completed in as little as 2 weeks, depending on the level of integration and customization required for clients. Aspect Enterprise Solutions clients have the choice to host their solution in the Aspect Enterprise Solutions Cloud, or on their servers.

Energy Risk’s Annual Software Rankings Report is based on votes where respondents were asked to vote for their preferred software vendor, implementation specialist, data management firm and data provider in a variety of categories.  A copy can be found on the energy risk website here .
