Scott Johrde

COO

SEI Energy, LLC

To support the future growth of SEI’s business and ensure our customers’ needs are met in a timely and profitable fashion, we needed to streamline the flow of information throughout the organization and reduce the amount of time spent on back-office paperwork and reporting. In addition, we needed to ensure we chose a platform that would not only meet our current requirements, but our future needs. Of the multiple vendors we evaluated, Eka offered the most comprehensive and cost-effective solution. We were particularly impressed with the amount of time Eka spent with us to understand our business model and requirements.

Jim Brown

SVP Mid-Office

Just Energy

We had outgrown our in-house system that was used across multiple businesses. We needed a better way to manage trading and risk with complete accountability and accuracy in real-time across our gas and power operations. After evaluating all the leading vendors, it was clear that Eka provided all the advanced functionality to meet our needs, and was the fastest, least cost, and lowest risk to implement. In addition, the Eka team proved to be the easiest to work with; they are a true partner.

Gerard Hogenkamp

Project Manager

Hoogwegt

Our existing Commodity Management system did not serve the current needs of our growing company, nor did it support our future plans. We set a goal that our new system would enable Hoogwegt to continue its future growth by standardizing business processes and integration of applications, while maintaining the flexibility required to serve our customers. Eka invested the time with us to truly understand our objectives and issues, and to develop the correct solution approach. We felt very comfortable choosing Eka.

Theo van Loon

Managing Director of Bracofeed Trading B.V.

Bracofeed

It was clear to us that Eka had the strongest business understanding and delivery capability of the 10 vendors we evaluated. In addition, the broad functionality and modern technology platform made Eka the right choice for Bracofeed. A Return on Investment (ROI) business case clearly illustrated that Eka provides the lowest total cost of ownership.

Robert Barr

Vice President

Agrex Inc

With Agrex's growth over the past several years, there was a requirement for a faster and more comprehensive risk management system. It was important that we have a solution that could provide an integrated view across our domestic and international operations, handling everything from grain terminals and logistics to exports, with a high degree of flexibility to transact financial hedging and risk management, as well as highly-sophisticated reporting tools. Agrex management established a Steering Committee which evaluated the needs of the company and researched the market for a suitable software solution. Eka.Agriculture was the best fit for the requirements of Agrex.

Eka clearly understands the complexities of the physical markets and are providing us with a complete farm-to-marketplace solution and an enterprise-wide view of our trading and risk management. The system architecture also lends itself to quicker and easier deployment than other systems we evaluated.

Klaus Pamminger

General Manager Marketing

GrainCorp

In order to meet our growth targets it is essential that we deploy a system which is fit for purpose, easy to use and flexible. Our challenge was to find the right product platform and partner for the next phase of our growth. We were not only impressed by the Eka product, but also by their people. They demonstrated an impressive depth of knowledge of the grain business and a willingness to work with us to meet our objectives.

Scott Wilde

Vice President – Strategic Global Resources

Superior Essex

We believe Eka has developed a product that combined with a cooperative working relationship between our two companies, reflects our operations needs and is the right product for our current business environment. As a commodity buyer, we need a system that easily interfaces with our ERP, helps manage our price risk, hedging operations, and assures compliance with hedge accounting requirements.

Eka meets these goals and combined with their flexibility, offers a platform that brings visibility over our global risk positions, streamlines risk management operations, provides reporting and analytical capabilities, and helps meet regulatory requirements. We are very pleased with Eka’s modern technology, their team’s capability and their knowledge of the commodity markets.

This is a very important project for us, as Eka's modern, integrated platform for commodity management will position us well to manage risk and further growth. A key ingredient for this success is the close collaboration between the internal CBH teams and our Eka colleagues. I thank the Eka team for their professionalism and commitment throughout the process. CBH is looking forward to reaping the benefits of this implementation and continuing to work with the Eka team.
