Leading Korean LPG Business Chooses Allegro’s Cloud-ready CTRM Software for Enhanced Capabilities in Trade Capture, Logistics, Risk Management, and Exposure Reporting

SINGAPORE, Jan 8, 2019: Allegro Development Corp., the global leader in commodity trading and risk management (CTRM) software coupled with advanced analytics, today announced that E1 Corporation, Korea’s leading liquefied petroleum gas company, has selected Allegro’s cloud-ready CTRM software to optimize its portfolio through enhanced capabilities in trade capture, logistics and risk management, and exposure reporting.

E1 imports, exports, stores, sells, and services liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) regionally and internationally. The company has become Korea’s number one environmentally friendly organization, covering over 50 percent of Korea’s LPG import demand and deploying a total LPG business that embraces the entire distribution channel — from oil and gas producing countries to end consumers.

Prior to selecting Allegro’s CTRM software, E1 realized the need to replace its manual, in-house portfolio management processes with an automated and flexible enterprise solution that offers greater controls, enhanced risk management, detailed reporting, and growth enablement. E1 also required a system with functionality that allows for fast deployment and seamlessly integrates with its IT new generation initiative to upgrade to new accounting and ERP platforms.

“As we grow and lead Korea in the clean energy movement, the E1 team finds it imperative that our business processes and technology investments give us a competitive advantage and align with our growth strategy,” said Kim Sang Hoon, Vice President, Overseas Marketing Division, E1. “Allegro’s cloud-ready CTRM software provides the functionality, flexibility and scalability we need to quickly accomplish these goals through automation, full portfolio visibility, and complex risk management capabilities. We are excited to see the near-term ROI as the system allows us to strategically plan for larger LPG trade volumes, better manage complex trade risks, and provide timely and accurate position and risk reporting.”

With demand continuing to grow in Asian countries, the region’s energy companies continue to turn to Allegro’s agile and flexible cloud-ready CTRM software for fast deployment and automation capabilities.

“I am thrilled to welcome E1 into the Allegro family,” said Jonathan English, SVP, Global Sales, Allegro. “On the heels of a Hanwha Total 10-week go live, the Allegro team is primed to continue our agile implementation methodology with E1; and we look forward to continuing our growth in the Asia-Pacific region.”
