I began working at ZE PowerGroup Inc. (ZE) very recently. Although I still have much to learn about the complexities of data management challenges in the energy and commodities markets, I have been impressed by the scope of solutions ZE has developed to meet these challenges. I have also been impressed by the number of international awards ZE has won for both its ZEMA software and industry partnerships. For example, this is the fifth consecutive year that ZE has been named “Data Management House of the Year” by Energy Risk magazine, a global publisher delivering relevant news and analyses for commodity traders and risk managers. In the 2013 list of Energy Risk software rankings, ZE’s data management software, ZEMA, was also ranked first in the categories “Preferred System”, “Ease of Integration”, and “Best Customer Service” (a rank awarded by software end-users). These accolades coincided with the release of several new tools for our ZEMA software, including Market Analyzer 4, Curve Manager 4, and Curve Portal (a new sub-product of Curve Manager). These tools continue to receive a lot of attention from industry participants.

ZE also excels at partnerships; ZE has partnered with major energy and commodities market participants to stay abreast of global market shifts. Platts, a ZE partner and a global provider of benchmark price assessments for varied commodity markets, recently awarded ZE the “P3 Ignite Partner of the Year” award at the Platts P3 Executive Summit. ZE has many additional consulting, data, software, and technology partners in order to ensure that our software is the most responsive to market demands.

ZE also continues to find new international clients and industry partners. Just last month, ZE was awarded “Technology House of the Year” by Energy Risk Asia, an event for energy trading and risk management professionals in Asia sponsored by Energy Risk magazine. ZE merited this award because of our expanded Asian office operations and the flexibility of our ZEMA software.

We at ZE are extremely grateful for the industry recognition we have received, and we want to share what we believe distinguishes us from other market participants.
