SIX Telekurs is successfully carrying out two projects with ING-DiBa, Germany's largest direct bank.
At the beginning of April, the revised market information page embedded on the German homepage (wertpapiere.ing-diba.de) was launched in cooperation with Smarthouse Media GmbH. The online brokerage system is now also provided with data from SIX Telekurs.
Revamping the market information page
ING-DiBa assigned SIX Telekurs with the task of redesigning and significantly upgrading the market information page. To meet the high requirements expected by ING-DiBa regarding customer information, it was decided to improve the site in the following areas: design, overview, search functions, display of securities information, as well as additional services and functions. The improvement of the search engine was also a component of the relaunch.
The basis for the relaunch is a functional specification outlined by SIX Telekurs and its partner, Smarthouse Media GmbH.
Online brokerage solution with SIX Telekurs' Market Data
Feed (MDF) An additional project concerns the improvement of real-time price information in the online brokerage solution. To achieve this, ING-DiBa will rely on the Market Data Feed (MDF) product from SIX Telekurs. The new solution from SIX Telekurs shall represent an improvement on the former solution both in terms of cost and performance.
MDF supplies real-time market data from all leading trading centers around the world in a standard format. In addition to stock exchange data, MDF provides a wide range of derived, calculated and statistical values enhanced with access to real-time business news from national and international agencies.
The improved market information, search options, and the revised online brokerage system were put into operation for ING-DiBa AG at the beginning of April 2009. "We decided to use SIX Telekurs as a central supplier for all data involving securities information and prices having been convinced by the excellent data quality as well as the detailed and thorough elaboration of a solution customised to meet our needs," states Thomas Dwornitzak, Head of Business Development Securities at ING-DiBa. "The results are very impressive."
Oliver Frös, Key Account Manager, SIX Telekurs Deutschland GmbH: "We are very pleased that we were able to convince ING-DiBa with the wide-ranging benefits of our solutions. This assignment is a further confirmation of our unique skills and the high level of quality that we offer."
