PONTON approaches processes and technology from a user perspective. We help our clients to choose the right tool for a given problem.
B2B integration is the most cost efficient, reliable and safe way for an end-to-end integration, if it takes place in a standardised way. If done properly, it results in significant savings in the total cost of collaboration. However, participants from various industries often find themselves facing the same problem:
“If only I could be sure that technology ABC, and the format XYZ would be accepted throughout my industry. Given that, we would immediately invest in the automatic connection to our business partners. However, we would rather not want to be the first install new software, change our systems and train our people to new processes, if we cannot be guaranteed that our business partners will follow suit.”
PONTON has done pioneering work to solve this chicken-and-egg problem, both on the technology and on the business model and licensing side. PONTON offers an industry-wide business model, which is characterized by two main advantages: 1) low initial investment and 2) business case gets more attractive as more participants join.
The combination of these two factors, together with improved productivity, reduced risk of miscommunication and smooth information exchange. This way, a short-term joint ROI can be achieved for an industry consortium.
PONTON has supported the European energy sector throughout the entire value chain for more than 10 years. Although we have a focus on energy trading, we also support grid management and customer-related processes.
PONTON is one of the main players for business related blockchain applications. However, it is important to state that we are technology agnostic, that is to say we first discuss the business requirements before choosing the technology.
PONTON is a software company with a deep knowledge of the supported business processes. Through this role we have gained unique know-how not only in technology, but also in markets and regulatory regimes.
