Contigo Software Limited is celebrating its 15th birthday this month.
The company was established in 2006 by industry professionals, who set out to develop software solutions built specifically for energy trading markets. Today, the company is proud to be a leading provider of ETRM solutions across the UK and Europe.
The past, present and future
Contigo began life as a start-up, established by industry experts. Thanks to welcoming new clients, enjoying the benefits of acquisitions and establishing a strong team, Contigo’s success has seen the team grow from four in its infancy to over fifty today.
The company is proud of its team of talented developers, business consultants, customer service professionals and colleagues, and expects to increase the number of its employees and clients on a regular basis over the coming years, as the business continues to grow.
CEO Simon Wheeler comments: “We are delighted to be celebrating Contigo’s 15th birthday. The past successes of the company have shaped who we are today, and as we look ahead to the future, we can sculpt our strategic direction from a solid position. We are going from strength to strength.
“Thank you to everyone who has played a part in Contigo’s story and to those sharing the present and future with us.”
Contigo’s story within the Energy One Group
Contigo was acquired by the Energy One Group in December 2018, which is a leading ETRM software house based in Australia. Established for over 15 years, the company offers a similar and complementary product range to Contigo in Australasia.
Contigo’s position within the Energy One Group enables the company to stand out as an ETRM software supplier, thanks to the joining together of a wealth of energy trading experience. The partnership brings opportunities to collaborate and further develop best-of-breed systems, to enable generators, retailers, producers, shippers and traders to manage their entire wholesale trading portfolio.
In 2020, the Energy One Group completed a share purchase agreement to acquire eZ-nergy, which was already a long-standing partner of Contigo. eZ-nergy is a French software company that supplies software and services across Europe. Contigo partners with eZ-nergy to provide a unified range of solutions serving the European power and gas markets.
The inclusion of eZ-nergy into the Energy One Group further strengthens Contigo’s position as a prominent independent ETRM software supplier. The partnership brings many opportunities to Contigo and eZ-nergy and reinforces both organisations’ strength and footprint in Europe.
Being part of Energy One provides exciting possibilities for Contigo’s customers and stakeholders. Having a parent company with a similar focus on market offerings, and understanding the same market challenges as Contigo, supports the company in continuing to develop innovative software solutions for the European energy market.
