Integrated ERP & CTRM
An integrated ERP/CTRM solution such as CTRM offers the required support for all of the business processes of the various departments in your organization; Trading, Logistics and Finance. At the moment a colleague enters a transaction in the system, it is visible for all other users. Everyone looks real-time at the positions. These positions form the heart of CTRM.
The basis for every trader is its position. This position forms the heart of CTRM. Here, the contracts, logistics agreements, the prices, costs and all other important variables come together. Without knowing the exact position, they just can’t take the right decisions. CTRM
ensures realtime position information.
Your departments Logistics, Sales, Trading, Finance and Treasury have all kinds of information needs such as: ‘Where are my goods?’
Can I deliver on time?’, ‘Are my purchase or sales orders hedged’?. Realtime insight in positions, contracts, currency positions and the operational risk is crucial to the trading activities and is essential for managing risks. With CTRM you have this information available at any moment.
CTRM starts with purchase or sales contract entry, supports your future and currency hedging and by allocating contracts based on your own defined product specifications, you’re able to find and execute the perfect match. This allocation matching can be changed until the moment the contract is executed.
CTRM supports the ‘valuation’ functionality. With this Mark-to-Market principle you have insight in the current value of your contracts at the current market price.
Logistics services such as storage and transport are crucial for an excellent customer experience and are supported by CTRM. Managing the goods flows and recording transactions in a logistics system ensures that clients remain satisfied, that they receive correct invoices and that the costs of storage and transport can be managed effectively.
