Leading Pan-European Energy Trading House, Danske Commodities, Logs 1 Million Power Trades within its First 90 Days of Using Allegro’s Automated Energy Trading and Risk Management Software

LONDON, March 13, 2018: Global leader in commodity trading and risk management (CTRM) software, Allegro Development Corp., today announced that pan-European energy trading house, Danske Commodities, has had an extremely successful first 90 days on Allegro’s software to manage its full power trading value chain.

As one of Europe’s leading independent energy trading houses, Danske Commodities trades power and gas across 37 European countries and uses its market knowledge and 24-hour trading setup to support customers.

With a strong desire for increased and streamlined business process automation, Danske Commodities recently searched for a new system that would support future growth strategy and the transportation of the company’s operating model. Allegro’s software extensibility and ability to integrate with existing IT systems combined with its support of Danske Commodities’ scalability, proved to be key drivers in the initial selection process.

After a strategic and customized phase one of implementation, which entailed moving all of Danske Commodities’ power trading to Allegro’s platform, the company has reported the successful migration of 367,000 trades from its prior legacy system. Today, Danske Commodities is producing over 9,000 trades per day, with over 99% of trades captured automatically through exchanges, brokers and business tools.

Jakob Sørensen, Director, Head of Risk Management, Danske Commodities:
“We are pleased to announce that in a short 90 days after implementation of Allegro’s software, we have now captured 1 million trades in Allegro’s software. Danske Commodities has already experienced improved operational efficiency. We are excited to move the rest of our trading portfolio on to the Allegro platform.”

Michael W. Hinton, Chief Strategy and Customer Officer, Allegro Development:
“As a tier 1 CTRM system, Allegro’s platform provides necessary front, middle and back office transparency across any portfolio, which is why Danske Commodities originally chose our solution. Now with a successful first 90+ days on Allegro, Danske Commodities is poised to continue to streamline functions and analyse key data for greater control and profitability with minimal risk and disruption.”
