Infront Targets ‘Over-Dimensioned’ Premium Desktops with Modern, Competitively Priced Market Data Terminal

Subscribe to our newsletter

Infront, the leading provider of real-time market data, news and analytics, has released a major upgrade to its market data terminal offering. The upgrade makes the performance, coverage and ease of use associated with modern premium market data terminals available at highly competitive rates, with pricing based on usage rather than over-dimensioned packages.

The new Infront release – version 6.0 – combines premium-quality data coverage and functionality with a new, highly intuitive customer interface to create a modern market data terminal, available on compelling commercial terms.

“Our customers are telling us that the new Infront terminal makes their traders more effective at a cost considerably lower than the premium services they have used in the past,” says Kristian Nesbak, CEO at Infront. “We believe the combination of powerful functionality, a modern, intuitive UI, and compelling commercials combines to offer for the first time a viable alternative to expensive, over-dimensioned and packaged services.”

Among the new features being introduced in Infront are:

New Graphical User Interface – the entirely new GUI simplifies access to pricing and related financial information, with commonly associated entities, industries and asset classes grouped for ease of access.

Search-based data discovery – rapid access to specific instruments, asset classes or analytics through a new easy-to-use search facility.

Distinctive look and feel – Inspired by the Northern Lights, Infront’s unique new blue-green interface is designed to be easier on the eye during long days in front of the terminal than traditional black market data screens.

World class data coverage – Infront offers a wide range of data sources and data types, including real-time pricing covering equity, fixed-income, foreign exchange, funds and commodities markets; trade data from OTC trading and dark pools; news from Dow Jones Newswires; index data; company fundamentals; curated social media news and other analytics; and a broad range of functions you’d typically expect from a premium package service costing several times more each month.

Users are already enjoying the benefits of Infront.

“In selecting a new market data solution, we needed to strike a delicate balance between saving costs and delivering on user requirements,” says one data manager at a major European bank. “Infront gives our users access to an extensive set of market data, news and analytics, all at a cost which is much lower than what we had been paying for our previous solution.”

The Infront terminal caters to those users who require a more focused solution containing high-quality data, news and analytics without the often- unused capabilities of many higher-cost alternatives. As such, Infront can offer significant cost reductions compared to other market offerings, making it a compelling choice for many brokerage, asset management, corporate and investment banking users.
