16 September 2020 | Press Release

With a calculated summary index of 98%, Eka ranks as a top vendor in functional depth and a leading provider of these solutions deployed to clients for the second consecutive year

Leading commodity tech analysts Commodity Technology Advisory’s (ComTech) recently released Sourcebook highlights Eka Software Solutions extensive product functionality for commodity businesses. ComTech’s Sourcebook for CTRM Software provides a rich source of information into the capabilities and coverage of products within the ETRM/CTRM software space. Eka was one of the 40 vendors included and for the second consecutive year the cloud platform driven company emerged in the top 3 vendors in terms of functional depth and commodity coverage.

ComTech’s summary index indicated Eka scored an average of 98% based on functional matrixes submitted by each vendor. In addition to noting the platform’s functional coverage across various commodities, the functional matrixes also took into consideration customers who have actually deployed these capabilities in a production environment.

Each commodity is governed by unique characteristics due to differences in its production, processing, packaging, storage and transportation at every step of the value chain. These characteristics dictate how these commodities move through the supply chain that further establish functional requirements within a system. This has led to commodity businesses looking for solutions that help them address the operational complexity and risks of trading different commodities.

Eka’s visionary approach to CTRM/ETRM is evident in the significant R&D investment of nearly 30% of its revenues. It has invested in the breadth of its applications covering position management and P&L reporting; analytics, trading, risk and compliance management; supply chain operations and financial close. Its applications have advanced depth of functionality for a wide range of commodities and are developed to fully support the nuances of trading different asset classes that include a comprehensive set of exchanges and instruments.

“Eka has remained steadfast in driving rapid innovation for our customers, and we believe this scoring in ComTechAdvisory’s CTRM Sourcebook is a testament to Eka’s market leadership, depth and client success of its platform driven solutions.
