Online broker dealer TradeKing today announced that it has selected the open-source Drupal platform to fulfill and grow the company's content management needs.
By using Drupal, TradeKing can now deliver engaging user content to clients very quickly.
TradeKing found that Drupal's open-source architecture lends itself well to the needs of highly active online brokerages, which require dynamic, collaborative features to work fluidly together. Currently used by such leading organizations and government entities as the White House, Google, The Economist.com and CNN, Drupal provides TradeKing with the ability to respond, manage and promote multiple forms of content with flexibility and speed.
"Our implementation of Drupal is part of a series of technology enhancements we've made and will be making company-wide," said Dan Raju, CIO, TradeKing. "Our goal is to create a flexible and scalable content backbone that will help us continue to deliver the very best client experience possible with access to the data and content investors need to make informed investment decisions."
TradeKing's business and technology staff now can gain visibility into the most up-to-date documents, and quickly collaborate for better and faster project management. By embracing open-source, TradeKing gains access to Drupal's other innovative plug-ins such as those designed for peer-to-peer networking, client communication, and social networking in the future.
