Nasdaq Corporate Solutions, a business line of Nasdaq, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ), today announced it will offer investor relations (IR) professionals an enhanced platform for their IR websites, powered by open source technology.
With a focus on mobile design, the new functionality will allow IR professionals to add unique content and analytics seamlessly to their IR website. The enhancements will complement the existing user interface of Nasdaq IR Insight(TM) - the integrated workflow solution already used by more than 10,000 financial executives and IR professionals around the world.
"Our transition to open source technology empowers IR professionals to transform the online experience by improving communications with investors, media and buy-side and sell-side analysts," said Stacie Swanstrom, Executive Vice President and Head of Nasdaq Corporate Solutions. "Born from both innovation and client demand, we are changing the way companies engage internal and external stakeholders by delivering best-in-class intelligence, analytics and streamlined communications tools."
Features of the next generation IR website platform include:
• Unique content and analytics: Seamless integration of unique, institutional-quality content and analytics from the Nasdaq IR Insight platform.
• Innovative flexible design focused on mobile: Responsive and customizable design to improve the mobile experience with advanced SEO options, including meta tagging for popular social networks.
• Feature-rich content management system: Expands self-publishing capabilities that provide additional customer control over content.
• Advancements in security features: Increased authentication and secure file transfer capabilities, improved site security and tighter controls on access to pre-disclosed content.
Both new and existing customers are eligible to upgrade their websites beginning in 2017 using a variety of redesign options, all of which leverage Acquia and the Drupal 8 open source enterprise web content management (WCM) system.
