Gassen Consulting, a Geneva and Singapore based consultancy, has been accepted to the partner programme of Aspect, a global provider of cloud commodity trade, risk management and market data solutions.
Established for 5 years, Gassen Consulting is a Switzerland-based consulting firm that serves both trading and shipping industries with knowledge, best practice and business consultancy across front, middle and back office processes. Areas of expertise include finance, supply chain, trade finance, risk management, benchmarking, auditing and the selection and implementation of CTRM solutions.
As part of its wider services portfolio, Gassen Consulting has been accepted to the Aspect Partner Program (APP). The platform, launched just one year ago by Aspect, provides organisations with a “trusted network” of products and services geared at the selection, implementation and support of E/CTRM solutions*. Under the alliance, Aspect will provide the business advisory with business and system consultancy opportunities and keep consultants up to speed with product knowledge, while in turn Gassen Consulting will share valuable knowledge with Aspect engineers as well as recommend Aspect products to clients.
“Aspect is the perfect partnership for us. We serve the same size client organisations, we deal with the same range of commodities and we believe firmly Aspect has the technology just right,” says Gassen Consulting owner and founder Marcel Gassen. “Equally we have the detailed process knowledge, local presence and market know-how we think Aspect will benefit from.”
Chetna Bhatia, Aspect’s VP of partnerships and services, says he looks forward to a “strong alliance” with the consulting firm. “In short it’s a win-win for both companies.”
