In July 2007, QED Financial Systems introduced QED Data Connection, a solution that provides comprehensive securities data to QED clients via single, customized data feeds that enable organizations to save time and control costs. QED Data Connection provides users of QED's Q2 Investment Workflow System or QED Datamart with up-to-date market prices, security master data, GICS data, corporate actions announcements, indices, and constituent data.
QED Senior Vice President Michael Dowd explains the benefits of using QED Data Connection. "Our new QED Data Connection service allows our customers to streamline their operational workflows by reducing their dependence on multiple data providers. In keeping with our model of providing integrated solutions to financial organizations, we have leveraged our existing relationships with major securities data providers to offer a 'one-stop shop' for securities data."
QED Data Connection will provide the middle- and back-office operations of buy-side investment organizations with a means of streamlining market data receipt by consolidating their multiple data feeds and multiple contracts into one integrated, competitively priced service. QED Data Connection is currently offered to existing QED clients who use the Q2 Investment Workflow System and/or QED Datamart.
