Commodity Management

 

Manage your end-to-end trading business, drive value from your data and transform your operations. Gen10’s CommOSTM completes the feedback loop between trading, operations, finance and risk to support smarter, safer trading decisions.

Make the day-to-day tasks of commodity trading faster and simpler through automation and collaboration.

The CommOS Ecosystem

Flexible cloud apps allow you to define your optimal workflows and configure your apps according to each individual user’s role and the organisation’s processes. Each app can be implemented as a stand-alone solution, as part of a comprehensive commodity management solution or as an add-on to your existing ERP, CTRM or ETRM system.

And out-of-the box workflow templates mean each business unit can go live in as little as 2 to 4 weeks.

Powerful integrated CTRM technology

Driven by comprehensive workflow and pricing engines. Automate processes across front-, middle-, and back-offices for continuous position reconciliation. Feed data into ERP and other software in real-time. The cloud software gives all users the information and tools they need at any time and on any device.

Enhanced contract management

Manage counterparties, automate document creation and gain control over contract processes with automated workflows.

Calculate and re-calculate pricing automatically. Multiple premiums and discounts, FX, exchanges, conversions and more provide complete visibility and optionality.

Better logistics

Power logistics with automated document creation including shipping and warehousing documents and bank requests for release.

Reduce operational risk using checks and controls including credit limit alerts, missing documents, allocation quantities and more. Keep all teams updated on every contract with automated calendars of outstanding tasks and deadlines.

Live reporting

Gain complete, real-time position visibility that updates as soon as actions are taken. The wide range of in-system reports and reporting integrations provide real-time P&L, MTM, position and management reports that give clear, actionable insights into your operations.

CTRM becomes a tool to speed up processes, reduce administration and improve compliance, while the reports take care of themselves.

Automated contract management

Workflow engines provide efficiency, control and audit. Progress digital contracts through Legal, Finance, CSR and commercial functions seamlessly. Automate contract creation, special clauses and processing to approvals and counterparties.

Automatically calculate pricing with multiple assays, premiums and discounts, on call and average pricing, as well as FX and interest.

Faster processes

Manage approved counterparties, their documents and expiry dates. Automatically create contracts based on their history or your approved templates. Virtual lots make it easy to monitor incoming stock and any assays, allocate the right stock to sales contracts and trace commodities, even when blending or combining lots.

Live reports update as soon as actions are carried out. Issue the contract, feed your positions and update your ERP at exactly the same time.

Better controls

Use digital approvals and signatures, with workflows providing confidence that contracts are not progressed without approval and digital processing creating a complete record of every action taken as standard.

Cloud commodity management

Access this cloud app securely from anywhere on almost any device. Team members can update deals and approve contracts securely, even when away from their desks.

Versatile integrations

Included as standard with Commodity.Manager CTRM or implement as a stand-alone app. Manage and automate purchase and sale contracts on a single platform or feed your E/CTRM or ERP position reporting to gain better outcomes from your existing technologies.

Faster pre-trade and deal capture

Streamline high-volume transactions and capture pricing across your organisation. Communicate price levels, invite offers, close deals and monitor activity.

More communication

Transform your procurement process by inviting approved suppliers and customers to your private digital marketplace. The mobile-friendly app means your team can close deals quickly and automate business confirmations for instant communication, even when traders are out and about.

Better data

Gain greater insights from tracking offer-bid spreads and performing analysis via a simple responsive dashboard. API integrations with Contract Management, CTRM and ERP systems update your digital records as soon as deals are confirmed, reducing data entry and improving accuracy.

Traceability and provenance assurance

Perform due diligence on suppliers or warehouses with this web and mobile app. Inspectors can survey even remote producing regions and share data instantly using the cloud app. Or, in areas of limited connectivity, can save responses and upload them as soon as they have Internet access.

Paperless audit

Ensure mandatory questions are completed. Upload supporting evidence and use the device’s GPS location to confirm the site visit.

Complete transparency

Information is available across the organisation as soon as it is uploaded, with no risk of errors during transcription. Fully-digital records create a complete change log, showing any changes made to your information and when.

Manage risk as part of everyday workflows

Populate risk reports with the information your team generates as they work – with no need to copy information or wait for end-of-day reports.

Real-time Operational and Financial risk

Broad risk management tools support activities from price and premium curves to credit limits. Reports including MTM, position and P&L help you mark your exposure to market, square your hedges and explain your P&L, all updating as weights and quantities change throughout the day.

The cloud app can be securely accessed remotely, providing all the information your people need, whenever they need it.

Work with your technology

Included as part of Commodity.Manager CTRM or use the stand-alone app to improve your existing software’s risk management.

Scale with confidence

Knowing that financial, commercial and operational activities are being controlled and monitored from the ground up.

Apps

Cloud commodity management solutions for specific commodities, challenges and supply chain positions. More flexible solutions than a traditional CTRM and can be integrated with other CTRM, ETRM and ERP technologies.

APIs

APIs connect apps and technologies, sharing data continuously and creating one connected commodity management ecosystem, whatever technologies you use.

Blockchains

Distributed ledgers allow collaboration between organisations connected in commodity supply chains to solve problems such as providing instant trade finance via repurchase agreements.

MORE THAN CTRM

Shift from financial and market risk to integrated op-risk solutions

CTRM systems help organisations create financial reports, manage market risk and demonstrate compliance. With Gen10, CTRM is only part of the solution.

We get into the daily details of tasks, deadlines, document creation, distribution and storage and who needs to do what and when.

Each app can be implemented as a stand-alone solution to a specific problem or as part of a comprehensive commodity management solution. This flexible approach means solutions can go live in days, with no need for custom development.
