Infront, the leading provider of real-time market data, news and analytics, is offering a free trial of its latest Infront market data and trading platform to current clients of Thomson Reuters’ 3000 Xtra premium desktop service, which is being withdrawn from the market on December 31, 2013.
The Infront platform 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.
“We needed a more targeted solution that gave us the data, news and analysis we required but without the complexity and unused features that can make mainstream products so expensive,” says one Infront customer at a regional brokerage firm. “The Infront platform allows us to cover our core requirements in a flexible and highly cost-effective manner.”
Infront is a comprehensive market data platform that provides customized exchange and MTF-sourced data sets covering equity, forex, fixed income, money, derivatives and commodities markets. It also offers earnings estimates, fundamental data, economic calendars and real-time news from multiple leading sources. Significantly, it doesn’t package in a proprietary messaging system, instead leaving the client to choose from the range of independent offerings available in the marketplace.
The Infront platform also includes advanced trading functions, calculators and analytics tools, and works with all major mobile environments, including IOS, Android and Blackberry. For more information and to sign up for a free trial, visit: http://goinfront.com/proplus
Thomson Reuters’ planned obsolescence of 3000 Xtra is the final step of a programme of withdrawal for the service that began earlier this year. After December 31, Thomson Reuters will no longer support existing 3000 Xtra installations. It plans to migrate clients to its newer platform, Eikon, before decommissioning 3000 Xtra and related delivery and support infrastructures at a later date.
For many 3000 Xtra users, news of the planned End of Life creates a decision point on whether to proceed with the migration to Eikon. Recognising this, Infront is offering a free trial of its platform, which brings high-quality core market data, news and analytics services for those customers who are currently using systems that are over-dimensioned for their actual requirements.
