SoftSmiths Successfully Transitions Customers to New ERCOT Nodal Market

Houston, TX. – December 1, 2010 – SoftSmiths, Inc., a leading energy software solutions and services company, today announced that more than 10 market participants successfully transitioned to the new ERCOT Nodal market supported by its SoftSmiths Market-ERCOT power scheduling/bid management and settlement solution.

The new ERCOT power market went live today after significant changes that transitioned it from a zonal model to a nodal structure with day ahead and ancillary service markets. SoftSmiths offers market participants with or without resources, a smooth entry into the new ERCOT market with its SoftSmiths TMS suite of applications that can be deployed on-site at the customer or delivered through its Software-as-a-Service delivery model.

“By choosing SoftSmiths, our customers recognized the flexibility of our offering, both in terms of functionality and deployment options, that makes it easy for them to manage their scheduling and settlement activities”, said Hugo Stappers, Director of Sales and Marketing at SoftSmiths, Inc. “By leveraging our e-Link API for system integration they further improved the efficiency of their QSE operations in a Nodal market that will see increased commercial activity with higher transaction volumes”.

SoftSmiths Market-ERCOT provides ERCOT market participants the bid/offer/schedule submission and settlement functionality to automatically submit trades information to ERCOT, run a shadow settlement and identify discrepancies in ERCOT charges thereby reducing reconciliation activities.
