Frequently Asked Questions

  • What differentiates Allegro from its competitors?

    Unlike other Commodity Management Solutions, Allegro is architected from its core to address the specific needs of energy commodities, earning a strong reputation with utilities and power producers as a leading solution. Allegro has been the solution of choice for power, gas, and other energy commodities management for over 20 years.

  • We run our multi-commodity business on spreadsheets. Why do we need a CTRM?

    When using spreadsheets to manage your energy and commodity trading business, inaccuracies can be propagated as the data moves across multiple departments. Spreadsheets lack the controls, approvals, and messaging that would help detect these errors earlier in the transaction lifecycle. Relying on spreadsheets to manage the detailed and complex nature of energy pricing and transactions can impact data integrity and, ultimately, decision making.

    The risk of manual error is easily minimized with Allegro, a single integrated solution to optimize your entire energy portfolio across front, middle, and back office operations.
