Frequently Asked Questions
Is Openlink capable of growing with my business?
Openlink uses an in-memory database for storage and retrieval of massive amounts of data. This ensures the Openlink solution scales as you add more users, counterparties, asset classes and as transaction volumes grow, and is able to deliver aggregated real-time position reporting for the largest trading operations.
Can just one solution meet all of my business’ needs?
With Openlink, you get one integrated solution and one set of data that covers end-to-end processes from equity production, gas processing, forecasting, sourcing, and storage/transport optimization to marketing, trading, contract management, and position management through to risk, accounting, reporting, and compliance. This minimizes the risk of errors that may otherwise arise from transferring data between systems and ensures that traders and risk managers can see correct positions at all times.
