)-- Eka Software Solutions, the leading provider of Commodity Trading and Risk Management software for global commodity markets was a key sponsor at the 7th Annual Global Grain Conference in Geneva in November 2009. More than 900 delegates from 50 countries participated in this year’s Global Grain Conference. Pertinent to the current challenges and issues faced by grain companies, the conference focused on topics like governance, risk (corporate and physical), transport & logistics, legal & regulatory challenges.
Eka contributed to the conference by highlighting the best practices of successful companies who manage risk and exposures even in such volatile times. The presentation, “Best practices on risk identification and cost control - How the world’s leading commodity firms are managing in volatile markets” summarized Eka’s experience working with these companies. While a lot of commodity trading companies out there continue to depend on spreadsheets, outdated systems, or systems designed for other commodities, tech savvy companies understand that managing risk is no more an afterthought but an absolute necessity for survival and these companies have moved on to more robust systems which understand the nuances of their businesses.
Eka Commodity Trading & Risk Management software is designed for the physical as well as the financial aspects of commodity trading which is why some of the world’s leading commodity companies trust Eka to manage their commodity trading businesses.
