Contigo works with Lacima
We are excited to announce our successful work with award-winning energy and commodity analytics specialist, Lacima, to offer a new risk engine embedded in its enTrader® ETRM system.
Lacima is a widely recognised energy and commodity analytics software provider, and this is the first time that the company has embedded part of its risk functionality into an ETRM system.
