Medsofts Goes Live on Eka

 

Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of Smart Commodity Management software solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed implementation of its CTRM solution for Medsofts, a leading grain trader.

 

As a fast growing business in an increasingly complex and high-risk environment, Medsofts was seeking a CTRM solution that would be quick to implement and help automate and streamline the business with minimum disruption.

Easy data entry ensures all information is captured and reported efficiently. Positions are always in real time, the operations team is able to track current and planned shipments far more efficiently, tracking vessels and deliveries is far more streamlined, hedging is more effectively managed. In addition, Medsofts benefits from Eka’s business intelligence tools, accurate P&L reporting and Risk management of Physical and Financial trading.
