Be confident in your analytics during uncertain times. Lacima is still #1.


26 March 2020.   The Energy Risk Software Rankings for 2020 have been announced and Lacima is incredibly proud that it has achieved seventeen #1 rankings and overall ranked in the top five for 34 categories. It is the eighth straight year that Lacima has been voted #1 in these annual rankings, and these are our best results ever.  

Still the global leader for energy and commodities analytics.

"Our hearts and thoughts go out to those of our community who are struggling with the global pandemic and more than ever, businesses need to be confident that they are making sound business decisions and most importantly, managing their risks.   We are heartened that our users and industry players have confirmed, through these results, that you can be confident in Lacima's analytics.  

In a tough environment, players need to utilise every opportunity to better understand their risk and to improve their bottom line and the smart operators are using the industry specific analytics prioneered by Lacima for this. I think that our broad success in these rankings stems from our two product approach.  With Lacima Trader and Lacima Analytics,  users can have consistent numerical engines from pre-deal trading analysis through to post-deal risk management.  No other vendor provides this capability.

Most importantly today, we are here for you.  We have always operated as a global unified team supporting clients wherever they are.  If you need us whilst you are navigating uncharted waters, just call.  We are in this together." noted Chris Strickland, CEO Lacima.
