Through decades of architecting and delivering Commodity Trade Risk Management (CTRM) systems, we have developed a proprietary Business Process Framework designed for transaction management that spans all commodities, transportation modes and business models, consisting of 15 Business Processes with over 140 Sub-Processes containing over 1000 requirements.
