Numis, the independent investment bank, has deployed software and services from desktop integration specialist Glue42, to enable sales and trading teams to integrate and synchronise the applications they use on their desktops, both in the office and whilst working from home.
The Glue42 technology will provide Numis staff with seamless access to market intelligence, quotes,?pricing, customer analytics and news, without having to switch between different applications and data providers.
“This is all about enabling a best of breed system architecture that enables our staff to have the best possible tools for the job,” says Tim Valmas, head of technology and transformation at Numis. “In turn, we will be able to operate even more efficiently and continue to exceed for our clients and the business as a whole.”
As a result of the Glue42 implementation, users can now access one-click insights between applications, creating frictionless workflow experiences, says Valmas. “The team are much more efficient as it reduces the effort to ensure applications are in sync,” he says. “Staff can now easily link stocks and other details across multiple trading applications that are used by the desk.”
Reena Raichura, director, head of product solutions at Glue42, adds: “Interoperability is not just about the technology or a standard. It also requires a shift in mindset in how we design for the desktop. This means taking a user and workflow-centric approach by blurring the boundaries of applications and designing for the desktop holistically. This is what a financial desktop fit for the future looks like, where applications are borderless and work flows seamlessly. Numis shares this vision.”
The Glue42 implementation took less that five days, says Valmas. He concludes: “Seamless integration of our research, sales and trading applications with collaboration tools is crucial for more efficient and effective use of technology. Having the capability to embed client and market data into our existing sales and trading workflows provides our teams with the insights they need to gain a competitive edge, which is so important to us. Glue42 makes this happen.”
