How we got here
Origins rooted in secure data exchange
Systrends was founded in 1987 to consult on Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology across industries. Through the 1990s, the energy industry deregulated and many jurisdictions mandated electronic data exchange (EDI, XML, etc.) as a standardized communication protocol, focusing Systrends exclusively on enterprise software for energy companies. In 2001, Systrends contracted with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to develop what became our comprehensive EDI solution, Transaction Transporter (T ).
Organic expansion into FERC reporting
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s responsibilities scaled alongside increasing complexity from various state deregulation schemes and, in 2006, FERC and NERC ordered the first set of mandatory reliability standards. Systrends served on the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) committee to develop the eTariff standard for FERC in 2007 before partnering with four of the six FERC-regulated Independent System Operators (ISOs) to develop and launch our first electronic FERC filing software, eTariffManager, in 2010. We then expanded our FERC filing offerings in 2013 with eFileEQR, software designed to prepare and submit FERC’s Electric Quarterly Reports. More recently in 2021, Systrends developed and launched eMBRData to manage MBR data in FERC’s relational database and eFINForms to prepare and file annual and quarterly FERC financial forms electronically.
