The Linn Group, a Chicago based futures commission merchant (FCM), has signed up to Rolfe & Nolan's automated order entry and management system, RANorder.
The Linn Group is a privately held FCM providing a range of clearing services to brokers and traders.
Rolfe and Nolan says its RANorder system, which is delivered under an application service provider (ASP) business model, enables Linn to outsource hardware, network connectivity, application processing and exchange connectivity requirements.
Gordon Linn, president, Linn Group, says: "We selected Rolfe & Nolan because of the cost efficiencies to be had through their ASP model. We also liked the 24x7 support that gives us the ability to offer an out-of-hours order desk."
