Margin Protection & Fraud Prevention with Real Time Traffic Controls – Part 2
By Harun Hasić, Product Manager, ZIRA
Have you ever looked at you margin and wondered “… how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us”? Yes, it’s an Anne Hathaway quote from Dark Knight Rises, but that aside – this a hard truth for majority of Operators. Most Operators today are equipped with standard engines for loading and handling of Buy and Sell prices that change all the time – but what is their response time for routing changes implementation on the Network? In most cases, very slow. Statistics show that very small number of Operators use automatic routing implementation and still depend on Network Teams to implement it. Well, you see my point? With prices changing very fast, and routing orders taking time to implement, how do we benefit from good price margins if the traffic does not flow on correct routes? How do we earn that well deserved money? Don’t worry, we got you covered.
Keep the margin in the green zone
Does good craftsmanship mean always coming with new ideas? Does it mean always enhancing the existing concepts and striving to excellence? Or is the truth somewhere in the middle?
In the Eastern philosophy “the middle way is the golden mean”, and following it you cannot go too much astray. This was the idea that guided us towards the solution for margin protection.
Our solution is capable of retrieving a full network insight, performing LCR calculations, and producing automatic orders for various changes in the network. With the insight in the pricing, and full control of it, we additionally allow the Business User to set the margin protection rules. Based on these new margin rules, the solution is enabled to react automatically in prevention, not to wait for LCR calculation, or any manual reaction. As easy as pie “system catches bad price margin, route is automatically blocked on the network. System catches margin change, where the price is not endangered, route is unblocked”.
