CheckFree Corporation (Nasdaq: CKFR) today announced that CheckFree eVent, the company's powerful automation and workflow solution for corporate actions processing, now offers an ISO 15022 compliant interface to FT Interactive Data's corporate actions data feed.
FT Interactive Data, an Interactive Data business (NYSE: IDC), is a leading supplier of financial information to global markets. The combination of FT Interactive Data's ISO 15022 formatted corporate actions data with CheckFree eVent enables greater end-to-end automation of corporate actions processing. With the help of CheckFree eVent, users can receive, process and share corporate actions data without the need to convert to and from proprietary formats, a process that can be time-consuming, processing-intensive and prone to error.
