Woodbine Associates announces the release of a new report, âOrder Management Systems.â The report focuses on vendor selection, characteristics of recognized providers/solutions, trends in features and functionality, the value propositions of solution providers, and considerations for selecting a solution.
âThe report is intended to provide actionable information, analysis, and candid views to firms looking to acquire or change out solutions as well as for investment analysts and consultants seeking a better understanding of the space,â states Matt Samelson, Principal, equity market analyst, and primary author of the study.
âThe integral nature of these solutions within money management firms, the investment in time and resources for implementation and training, and the challenges associated with switching providers are a few of the reasons that proper selection is essential and should not be taken lightly,â Samelson explains.
The report has four major sections that discuss work flow, trends, solution components, and criteria firms should consider when making an order management solution/provider selection, common solution characteristics, and distinctive solution features and reviews.
âFirms should not be selecting these systems on the basis of popularity, industry awards, etc. Our report is distinctive in that we take views on which solutions are appropriate for particular users, the candor with which we review each solution, and the fact that our report is authored by individuals with actual user experience,â Samelson adds. âWe know of no other report that examines providers and solutions as rigorously as ours.â
Providers whose solutions are covered include: Advent Software, Bloomberg, Fidessa, Charles River Development, ConvergExâs Eze Castle Software, InData, Linedata, ITG, and Sungard.
The 72 page report contains 5 tables and 17 figures.
