9 reasons to upgrade your outdated ETRM system today. - Inatech

To compete in today’s oil industry it’s all about reacting faster to changing market conditions. Managing and taking advantage of oil price volatility. Understanding and efficiently handling complex supply chains. Monitoring the profit and loss of trades. And securing the right deal at the right time and at the right price.

To do this you need immediate access to accurate, up to date company, product and financial information.

If existing systems make that difficult then you run the risk of missing out on deals, making unprofitable transactions, struggling to find enough credit or simply not knowing what product you have available to sell at what price.

Deploying the latest ETRM software streamlines operations.

If you’re in a position where your data sits across multiple legacy systems or you’re using outdated or cumbersome technologies that make decision making time consuming then it could be time to upgrade your ETRM application.

With so many new ETRM applications on the market and cloud-based solutions gaining popularity because they offer the very latest technology without the need for large capex investments then there has never been a better time to invest in the latest ETRM software.
