The agreement makes possible the companies’ cooperation, including the implementation of Intel®’s state-of-the-art hardware and technological solutions in a wide range of EGAR Technology’s regular and custom software products, widely used for the integrated support of trading and financial markets management, and for complex automation of investment departments in banks and financial companies.

We believe that EGAR Technology’s software solutions are a fusion of Intel®’s hi-tech with EGAR’s in-depth expertise in financial software development, providing the end users - financial organizations - with reliability, quality and productivity beyond comparison in the market."

Gena Ioffe, Chairman of EGAR, emphasized: "The development of our software solutions on the basis of Intel®’s modern CPUs and chipsets not just assures their high performance, but also helps to decrease the maintenance costs for dozens of our current customers, and to reduce the costs of implementation for the prospective ones."

Starting from 2004, EGAR Technology has initiated the optimization of EGAR FOCUS financial software suite for running on systems with 64-bit Intel® Itanium® 2 CPUs.
