SOPTIM Connect for Sales & Trading

Energy sales is changing fundamentally: Increasing competition, decreasing margins and high churn rates restrict any leeway in the commodities sector. Digitalisation will bring new challenges like time and load-dependent tariffs for small businesses and households combined with much shorter billing cycles. To continue to play a major role in the market, efficiency and flexibility are key success factors. It is important to manage the existing business as best as possible while at the same time, attracting new customers with innovative offerings. Powerful IT systems are the basis for both. The ways to procure and trade energy have increased manyfold - through the integration of the European energy markets and the development of liquid intraday markets. In addition to traditional business, the marketing of flexibility and capacity becomes more important. SOPTIM Connect solutions enable energy companies to expliot new opportunities in procurement and trading, particularly where it relates to performance and responsiveness - as in the European intraday trading. But even where innovative processes and business models should be supported, SOPTIM Connect offers individual solutions that can be realized quickly and reliably.
