Lasalletech and Macdonald Associates have formed a strategic partnership for sales and support of the Lasalletech FIX productivity tools. The Lasalletech product suite includes tools that make the process of developing and deploying a FIX service more efficient, saving companies time and money. Companies using Lasalletechâs tools can enhance productivity and improve communication during the entire FIX lifecycle starting with the definition and publication of the specification. This announcement follows a similar agreement with Chelmer last week.
âWe are greatly pleased to have Macdonald be our reseller and partner in UK and Europe. The partnership combination of Macdonald Associates, Chelmer, and Lasalletech bring together the most capable trading connectivity engineering firms globally to provide sales and support for the leading FIX productivity tool suite,â said Jacob Northey, Lasalletechâs co-founder.
George Macdonald, CEO of Macdonald Associates said "I am delighted that we will be able to offer support for Lasalletechâs suite of FIX tools. I am sure that they will add a great deal of value to our customers, in testing FIX connectivity, supporting their production links, and on-boarding counterparties. We have been using Lasalletech's OpenFAST since 2008 and are impressed with its reliability and performance.â
âOur vision is to build lasting solutions with the flexibility to evolve over time. Our goal is to always support the full FIX functionality as new changes are introduced. Lasalletechâs product suite ensures our promise is kept with our customers,â said George Macdonald.
