Make IT


Net Energy, the first crude oil brokerage in Canada, wanted to tap into a growing market, but their manual trading process—based on telephone and IM communications—had limitations. They needed a technology partner that could translate their idea for an electronic trading platform into a functional software solution.


The president of Net Energy had deep domain expertise and a clear vision for an industry-defining software product. Make IT supported that vision with a consultative, agile software development process, extensive experience developing solutions in energy markets and the multidisciplinary breadth needed to provide complementary IT infrastructure and IT support services.


The resulting solution was an industry first, enabling traders to place electronic orders for both physical and financial crude oil contracts. Now used by traders across North America, it has become the largest-volume trading system of its kind. Most importantly, the system supports Net Energy’s growth because it can scale rapidly while maintaining service quality and minimizing additional infrastructure and human capital costs.
