Stockholm User Group Meeting.
STOCKHOLM, February 15, 2006 – Netherlands-based independent Market Data specialist Screen Consultants, held a successful INFOmatch User Group Meeting on February 15 at Berns Conference Hotel in the centre of Stockholm. The objective of these User Group Meetings, which are held all across Europe, is to update customers about new developments and future plans. In addition, it is an excellent platform, creating direct interaction between developers and users. Customers can express their requirements and wish list regarding new functionality, interfaces and reports directly to the vendor.
Last week’s Stockholm User Group Meeting covered two major sections. The first handled the developments of INFOmatch to date as well as the future development plans. Here the attendees got the chance to express their specific needs and wish for new functionality. The second part covered a market data optimisation case study at one of Germany’s largest banks. The presentation explained the phasing of this specific Market Data Project as well as the deliverables and benefits, including significant cost savings for the bank. It also outlined INFOmatch’s role as central project tool during the whole process. The presentation was much appreciated and the attendees expressed their wish for more presentations like this in future.
