No stranger to success in Africa, leading E-CTRM Vendor Aspect Enterprise Solutions prepares to once again sponsor ARA Week, the regions key annual gathering of oil industry professionals. Aspect will highlight enhanced physical operations functionality, and its ability to remotely service customers due to its powerful Cloud technology at the upcoming African Refiners’ Association (ARA) Week, in Marrakech March 24th to 28th.
Users of Aspect’s market data and analytics portal, AspectDSC and its trade and risk management solution AspectCTRM now total in the hundreds across Angola, Republic Of Benin, Congo, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa.
Some key advantages include AspectDSC, with real time and historical futures, spot assessments, and news from leading sources like ICE, Platts, Argus and others — on the same technology platform as AspectCTRM. Price uploads are easy from one system to the next, and it’s all available via one password.
Aspect specialists also understand the marketplace better than any other vendor, with more than 75 customers, and hundreds of users accessing Aspect’s Cloud solutions.
According to EMEA Vice President of Sales Yagnesh Savania, who has been servicing his clients for more than 8 years in the region, “We know this market better than anyone. Our customers have business needs that are unique to Africa’s bulk oil distribution system. We help our customers make more profit with less risk.”
And Aspect’s value proposition is key. Customers in the region get the tools they need to move away from spreadsheets, gain credit, and reduce risk, at a fraction of the price of older, traditional software solutions that require IT departments to manage them.
The flexibility of Aspect’s product architecture and its Cloud delivery mechanism means the companies can easily customize and localize to accommodate specific needs. Being delivered in the Cloud is an advantage for these companies, because there is no hardware to maintain, or need for IT resources to maintain it. It’s an out-of-the-box solution ready to use in weeks.
