The Value of ZEMA as a Flexible Tool for Unique Intelligence
If you are a regular viewer of CNBC, Fox News or BNN, you may have noticed Art Gelber, President of Gelber & Associates, sipping coffee from a mug emblazoned with a ZE logo. Perhaps, you’ve also noticed that the detailed graphs and reports he presents for analysis are powered by ZEMA, ZE’s powerful data management software. This in fact, is not a coincidence. Recently, Gelber & Associates was added to ZE’s growing list of clients as a ZEMA user. What makes this particularly interesting is that although Gelber & Associates is an international energy consultancy, it is not a “typical” type of ZE client. However, it makes perfect sense strategically for these two industry leaders to align themselves as a driving force in our complex world of data.
Gelber & Associates offers tailored consulting services to clients in various industries, including oil and gas, education, public utilities and private equity, to name a few. In contrast to ZE’s client list comprised of trade and risk management companies, energy utilities and investment banks, Gelber & Associates does not fit the traditional ZE client profile. Nonetheless, the firm was attracted to ZEMA because of its ability for users to visualize market data in unique ways and extract critical intelligence. Gelber uses ZEMA as a flexible tool to optimize the insight the company provides to its clients. One of ZEMA’s main functions for Gelber is to provide pricing outcomes for natural gas, crude oil, power, liquid natural gas and other energy sources.
The addition of Gelber & Associates to the growing list of ZEMA users speaks to the value of ZEMA’s versatility. The software will provide data aggregation and analysis, and automated data management to any company with a need to process vast amounts of data. Gelber may be boutique in size, but the value it extracts from ZEMA can also be realized on a much greater scale for larger market participants, including those in production, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, brokerage and finance.
