Bluparc and Thomson Financial Announce Partnership

London June 6: bluparc Limited, a leader in device-independent, real-time, interactive Customer Managed Relationships (CMR) today announced that Thomson Financial, a provider of e-information services and integrated work solutions to the worldwide financial community, is to be a preferred provider of financial content for financial market applications built for bluparc’s CMR Environment.

The recently announced CMR Environment provides a sophisticated mechanism for marketers to create one-to-one campaigns that adapt automatically and in real-time to customer response. Permission Builders, applications targeted to specific vertical markets, provide companies with a means to acquire permission from their customers to interact with them.

Thomson Financial has been selected by bluparc to provide content for bluparc’s Permission Builders that are targeted to the financial markets. The first of these Permission Builders, blubroker, will be announced in early June. "We are very pleased to be able to provide market content of the highest quality that Thomson Financial provides," said Stewart Holness, bluparc’s CEO. "That our applications will be equipped ‘out-of-the-box’ with the ability to use Thomson data means that our customers will benefit from reduced time to market."

Gareth Evans, Managing Director of Thomson Financial Solutions Europe, commented that "we welcome the relationship with bluparc, with their strategy based on Customer Managed Relationships. Their focus on telecommunications, as well as financial, markets gives us an excellent additional channel for Thomson Financial to deliver market data."
