ING Barings has signed an outsourcing agreement with Multex for the development and hosting of a new Web site which will provide institutional clients with real-time access to the investment bank's proprietary research and commentary by market, sector, company and analyst.
The site will provide content management allowing ING Barings analysts to publish commentary and breaking news directly to the relevant section of the Web site without programming knowledge. This technology will also permit Web masters at ING Barings to manage the structure/navigation of the Web site through a Web based administration tool.
Content entitlement will allow the bank to permission documents, data and functionality to an individual user. Usage reporting will be deployed to track user interaction and research readership.
Steve Jarrett, director, ING Barings, says: "Multex offered us the most effective solution for the secure and integrated distribution of investment research, combined with transparency and control."
