Whistler Providing Digital Behavior Analytics and Control to Mercuria Energy
Mercuria is one of the largest and most active integrated energy and commodities trading firms in the world.
BOULDER, CO – Whistler, provider of a revolutionary platform that lets enterprises analyze and control their digital behavior, is pleased to announce that global energy trading firm, Mercuria Energy Trading, has incorporated Whistler’s platform as part of its compliance program. Operating in more than 50 countries and with more than 800 employees, Mercuria is one of the largest and most active integrated energy and commodities trading firms in the world, trading crude oil, refined oil products, petrochemicals, natural gas, LNG, power, coal, carbon emissions, freight, iron ore, base metals and other commodity products.
“We are proud to have partnered with Mercuria, one of the largest firms in the commodities trading industry, to help them analyze their internal and external communications for risk,” said Whistler CEO Anish Parikh. “In regulated industries like commodities trading, it can be challenging for large companies like Mercuria to remain in compliance with the regulatory bodies in the 50+ countries where they do business. By incorporating the Whistler platform into their operations, we hope to provide Mercuria’s leadership with some peace of mind that they are being protected, in real-time, from potential risks as a result of employee communications.”
Whistler customers gain real-time, actionable visibility into everything that happens inside their company. This includes:
Multiplatform Listening: Automated monitoring of any communications channels that their employees use, from conventional email and IM to modern chat apps including WeChat, WhatsApp, Skype, Signal, Telegram, Slack and more.
Behavioral Analytics: Dashboards which give insight into productivity, sentiment, and potential risk, across departments and locations.
In-The-Moment Guidance and Training: A smart agent that alerts employees when they could be “out of bounds,” delivering instant feedback and training to help guide behavior.
Risk-based Control: The ability to intervene -- manually or automatically -- in the moment when the situation warrants, preventing reputational damage, legal liability and loss of enterprise value.
Retention: While listening, Whistler archives all communications across all channels. This helps “check the box” for legal or compliance requirements.
Education: By flagging and stopping problematic communications before they leave the company, the Whistler platform also serves as a real-time education tool, showing users what they can and cannot do in the moment.
The continued growth of Whistler’s customer base is further proof that enterprises see the value in having analytics on and control over their digital footprint. Our customers gain real-time, actionable insights into their businesses while simultaneously protecting themselves from unseen risks, improving their ability to make data-driven business decisions and drive new revenues, because they know that their organization is protected.
