Argus wins data quality award
London, 4 April 2016
Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus has been ranked number one for data quality and usability in the annual Energy Risk Software Rankings.
Energy Risk magazine surveyed its subscribers earlier this year, asking them to rank companies on a number of criteria. Votes are carefully checked and validated. Energy Risk is a well-respected magazine and website catering for risk managers and commodity traders.
Argus Media executive chairman and publisher Adrian Binks said: “Accurate commodity price data are the lifeblood of industry. Argus prides itself on the range and quality of its prices, which bring transparency to opaque markets. Efficient and quick dissemination of data is also vitally important to our customers and Argus has multiple delivery channels to suit their needs. We are delighted that our data quality and technological innovation has been recognised by our clients.”
The awards will be presented later this year.
