HSBC is using technology from UK analytics vendor TraderMade International to deliver real-time charts and quotes via mobile devices to its global treasury staff.
The bank is rolling out the vendor's TM-Cell application - which is designed for Blackberry devices, PDAs and mobile phones - to provide treasury staff with recent prices of a number of FX rates, precious metals, commodities, futures and stock indices.
TraderMade says no software needs to be downloaded onto the device and a simple bookmarked page enables quick and easy access.
Alan Clarke, global head of e-commerce FX at HSBC, says: "With their high-quality data and innovative technology, TraderMade have enabled us to equip our staff with the information they require, 24/7."
Paddy Osborn, global head of sales, TraderMade, says: "Dealers see the same charts and data, whether on their desktop TraderMade service, their e-commerce platform, or their mobile device.
"We believe that consistency of data quality and service delivery across different technologies is key to meeting the demands of the market today."
