What Our Customers Say...

Today a Energy Trading and Risk Management solution is a necessity to mitigate the financial and operational risks of volatile energy prices, complex logistics, counterparty risk, and regulatory compliance requirements.

Whether your market strategy focuses on high-volume hub trading, buying and selling around physical assets, or a combination of both, SoftSmiths' Power & Gas Management solution offers a flexible, scalable business technology solution seamlessly integrating Scheduling, Portfolio Assessment, Trading, Resource Management, Risk Measurement, Accounting and Reporting for your business.

To interface with custom and/or off-the-shelf applications, customer interfaces can be developed using the e-Link XML API. The system as shipped interacts with all NERC compliant tagging services, FERC compliant OASIS nodes, and EMS systems via EMSLink.

e-Link interfaces are designed using publish and subscribe, so transfers are event driven and occur as events take place.
