SmartTrade Technologies released HTML5-based front end applications for LiquidityFX and the Liquidity Management System as well as an HTML5 development platform that enables clients to customize their user interfaces.
HTML5 has experienced rapid adoption due to the rapid global growth in mobile Internet usage. This technology is a huge step forward for web-based and mobile device applications, enabling functionality in a browser or mobile device that was not previously possible.
David Vincent, smartTrade Chief Technology Officer said, "smartTrade's engineering team has been working with HTML5 for several years. As the code base and browser support became more mature, we migrated all of our front-end applications, including monitoring tools and trading workstations to a new HTML5 code base, tightly integrating them with the full stack of the smartTrade Liquidity Management System (LMS).
"We have migrated most of smartTrade front ends, including the client-facing LiquidityFX trading application. Using smartTrade's HTML5 development platform, clients will be able to customize their smartTrade user interfaces and extend the LMS functionality to multiple platforms including desktops and mobile devices from a single code base."
Vincent continued, "The front end space is very commoditized and there is no reason to pay high prices just to get "a front end" which should be a low cost component of a solid back end trading system. So smartTrade is providing our HTML5 development platform and user interfaces at a fraction of the price charged by other vendors in the market."
