WESTPORT, Conn., May 13, 2003 — Triple Point Technology, a provider of fully integrated front- to back-office systems for power, natural gas, oil, and other commodities, has announced an alliance with APX, Inc., a supplier of transaction processing services for the electric power industry.
The partnership will enable both companies to jointly serve the needs of North America’s regional power producers, marketers, and traders.
The integration of Power XL, Triple Point’s next-generation electricity trading and risk management system, with APX’s scheduling services and market interfaces will enable participants in the California ISO, Midwest ISO, PJM, NYISO, ISO-NE, and ERCOT markets to seamlessly interface their trading, scheduling, and tagging activity with RTOs and ISOs.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Triple Point to provide integrated energy software and services to our clients. The strong demand for front-to-back systems makes a combined offering even more valuable to the market,” says John Yurkanin, CEO of APX, Inc. “Triple Point’s proven capabilities in risk management systems are excellent complements to APX’s core competencies in power and natural gas back office services.”
APX’s ASP service enables power market participants to submit resource offers for the real-time market, submit load offers, and receive dispatch instructions. During settlement, the combined solution automatically compares system-calculated charges with ISO settlement values, provides a basis upon which to dispute ISO statements, and tracks existing disputes.
Peter F. Armstrong, president, Triple Point Technology, Inc., added, “The ASP business model reduces the overall infrastructure costs to our customers, drastically reduces implementation time, and increases system efficiencies. By partnering with APX, we can leverage their expertise with specific market interfaces and provide North American power traders with a solution tailored to each region’s exact needs.”
