Built for the Commodities Industry

In well over 10 years of configuring data management solutions for small and large companies, we recognize that no two commodity companies are the same. Yet, there are striking similarities in the challenges they all face around their business data – and optimizing its use.


A common challenge is that business data such as financial & physical contractual information is stored in multiple E/CTRM systems. Data availability, Master Data and quality aren’t uniform either, which often results in manual & time-consuming reconciliation process. On the other end of the spectrum, different business stakeholders need different types of reporting outputs.


The Tradesparent Commodity Data Hub resolves and reconciles all these needs by providing the best of both worlds: an Enterprise Data Management system (the ‘TS Data Hub’), built for commodity business data and their intrinsic properties. A robust solution that harmonizes your data and makes it accessible and readily available for analysis and dissemination.


Ingest and transform your data, at scale
