    The only real-time, straight-through processing, multi-commodity solution

    By Julie Preuss, Director, Marketing – Triple Point Technology, Inc.

    Commodity XLTM is Triple Point's flagship solution and is the only commodity trading and risk management system that works across multiple commodities, in real-time from front-to-back office. It is an integrated solution that profitably manages the complex, ever-changing requirements of physical and financial markets.

    Commodity XL is a real-time system that helps customers of all sizes gain business intelligence for better decision making, streamline trade processing, reduce transaction costs, maximize supply chain efficiencies, precisely measure and manage market risk, evaluate performance, and ensure regulatory and accounting compliance. It was built specifically for high volume, complex transaction management organizations. Commodity XL utilizes a component architecture that provides what you need today with the ability to plug-in additional functional components in the future to grow and adapt with your business.

    Multiple commodities, globally

    Commodity XL delivers unique functionality for each commodity you trade including oil, metals, power, natural gas, coal, freight and softs. Each module has been specifically designed to fully support the particular requirements of that asset class.

    Operational and management benefits

    Commodity XL delivers business intelligence for better decision making, streamlines operations, and provides reporting and audit trails for compliance and control allowing you to turn day-to-day operations into better business results.

    Business intelligence

    Reporting – with Commodity XL, every screen is a report showing information in real-time. Sort, filter and group all data according to the needs of each business area. Drill down or across to the lowest level of detail or roll up to view data in aggregation. 

    Analysis – Commodity XL provides real-time analysis models at multiple points in the life cycle of a transaction, including P&L attribution, margin analysis, VaR and "what if" scenarios. It also has seamless import/export integration with Excel for additional analysis.

    Streamlined operations

    With straight-through processing, your organization eliminates data re-entry and resulting errors. In addition, delays in data reaching each person in the transaction chain are eliminated resulting in faster decision making in markets where every second counts. The reduction in data errors coupled with integrated processing results in lower transaction costs.

    Compliance and control

    Commodity XL provides one version of the "numbers" across divisions, products and geographies. All documents are stored automatically for audit purposes and all reports required by regulations are generated. Every change to the system is captured and documented for a detailed audit trail to ensure accountability for SOX, FAS 133, IAS 39, and S&P risk.

    Integrated real-time transaction management

    Commodity XL is designed to deliver all the required functionality and support every role throughout the life cycle of both physical and financial commodity transactions. From executive to trader to risk manager to scheduler to accountant, Commodity XL provides the right information, presented in the proper format and delivers the results you require.
