QUODD Financial Information Services provides a real-time data management solution poised to revolutionize the integration, delivery and use of live data. The company’s solution is based on a proprietary platform technology which allows an enterprise complete flexibility in content selection as well as customized delivery with personalization down to the seat level (a radical improvement over existing rigid data solutions that force all enterprises to accept a standard delivery format and defined data set). Furthermore, because QUODD’s platform seamlessly integrates all third party market data within a company’s own internal systems/databases, and the entire solution is centrally-managed, it eliminates the need for company resources, thus significantly decreasing the data management costs across an enterprise.
