INFOmatch international User Group Meeting and Screen Event Amsterdam 2010
AMSTERDAM, September 30, 2010 – On September 22, INFOmatch’s International User Group Meeting again took place, which was very well attended with over 20 clients from The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, France, Sweden and Switzerland. The NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam served as the event’s venue.
The objectives of these User Group meetings are to update users about new developments and functionalities and future plans. In addition it is an excellent platform creating direct interaction between users and development. Customers are able to express their requirements and wish list regarding new functionality, interfaces and reports.
The beginning of the meeting was reserved to present and discuss the status of new developments, in particular new functionality related to compliance, reporting and cost allocating. After a short break the session was continued with interactive user group discussions and the filling out of client surveys. The meeting was closed with a social evening programme. It was a very fruitful and interactive day. We received lots of valuable feedback and input, which will be used by us to prioritise and detail our future software development path, support and service offering.
The next day, September 23, INFOmatch was also present at the Screen Event Amsterdam 2010. Like every year, the event – having 58 exhibitors and sponsors and over 500 visitors – turned out being a big success again. The INFOmatch booth was well visited by customers, business relations and passers-by that were curious to learn more about the system.
Besides an international exhibition the Screen Event consists of a high level conference and panel discussions. The conference portion of the show offered individual perspectives on key issues such as trends in Evaluated Pricing (striving for ever better transparency), Reference Data (regulative and legislative developments), the growing importance of risk management, the changing landscape of electronic trading, and how to take advantage of it, high performance automated derivates trading (what are the best solutions), trends in multi-media communication, and co-location and hosting solutions.
The one-day event turned out to be a perfect platform to learn more about the latest trends in technology for the professional investment industry. In addition to this it again provided excellent networking and B2B opportunities.
