Edgewater Markets partners with OpenFin to extend FX Trading
By Edlyn Cardoza
Technology provider Edgewater Markets has partnered with OpenFin, the operating system (OS) for enterprise productivity, to provide extended native desktop capabilities for FX traders. As a result, the full suite of products by Edgewater Markets is now available on OpenFin and is being distributed to clients globally.
The decision to migrate to OpenFin was due to customer demand based on browser workflow limitations. By using OpenFin, Edgewater Markets can now deliver a more flexible UX that allows users, such as Tier 1 and 2 banks, emerging market and regional banks, macro funds, high-frequency funds, pension funds, and corporates, to customize their workspace.
Edgewater Markets on OpenFin has full product parity with the existing browser version and added benefits delivered by OpenFin. By leveraging OpenFin’s flagship OS, customers of Edgewater Markets can now take advantage of an enhanced UX/UI experience across the desktop, such as window management for efficient workflows and desktop real estate management, while maintaining enterprise-grade security zero-install, memory retention and native desktop capabilities.
“Our clients needed more robust windowing performance from our platform. Since partnering with OpenFin, users have been very happy with the enhanced user experience due to window management capabilities, and have seen an upgrade in performance of data delivery as a result. Our development team was able to deliver the solution within four weeks utilizing the OpenFin framework, and we were off and running,” said Brian Andreyko, CFA, Chief Product Officer at Edgewater Markets.
“Edgewater Markets plays a valuable role in helping FX traders access liquidity in emerging markets areas. Connectivity to OpenFin has helped Edgewater clients to have better control over their desktop real estate and perform more efficiently overall,” said Adam Toms, CEO – Europe, OpenFin.
IBS Intelligence reported that OpenFin had announced that LSEG’s (London Stock Exchange Group) Turquoise Plato is connecting to OpenFin in response to the industry need for workflow efficiencies, application interoperability, and a more unified desktop experience for the buy-side and member firm users.
