Marketflow-How-It-Works

Managing data in perpetual change

Affinity Marketflow takes large volumes of structured messages from multiple points and co-ordinates their journey across a market or organisational landscape. It orchestrates data flows and has a unique depth of integration capability, working seamlessly with SAP and other enterprise systems. With so many messages exchanged between multiple systems, Marketflow makes this process easier and also minimises manual intervention when exceptions arise and errors are raised. This unique flexibility can help insulate clients from unnecessary and costly change.

Marketflow is designed to manage dataflows in the most complex, highest volume energy market in the world, the UK. This flexibility has been tested and proven, making it a highly reliable market interaction tool. Its uses go beyond energy and have applications in other sectors requiring management of complex flows of data such as the water and transport industries.

Manage end-to-end business processes
Marketflow allows our customers to manage and control their dataflows with greater visibility than ever before.

Single point of control
We recognise that our customers may have many systems which they use to manage different processes, Marketflow integrates with these and can be used as a single point of control for dataflow management, reducing software licensing and maintenance costs.

Change of supplier process
For a dual fuel customer, the change of supplier process can mean the management of 20-30 separate messages. With Marketflow, the whole process is automated from end to end, so there’s no need to input any data manually. Our solution automatically generates chase-up emails when data is missing or late, and can escalate any problems to the appropriate contact.

Flexibility in the face of change
As the industry standards for data exchange continue to evolve, and new industry processes continue to be developed, Marketflow makes it easier for our customers to update their systems using configuration rather than development.
