TRG Secures Exclusive Rights to Distribute Vela’s DART Terminal Usage Analytics

TRG continues to build out its spend management and usage tracking business through an agreement with Vela for exclusive global distribution rights to the company’s DART terminal usage analytics. Under the agreement, TRG will provide sales and relationship management for new customers, while Vela will provide after-sales support and development, and continue to manage existing client relationships.

Earlier this month, TRG acquired Screen Group and its INFOmatch software that specialises in market data cost management and adds to the company’s FITS solution. The addition of DART terminal usage analytics continues the company’s strategy to bring together subscription expense management and usage tracking capabilities that enable clients to optimise vendor spend.

DART’s terminal usage tracking capabilities are complementary to TRG’s ResearchMonitor product that provides a comprehensive usage monitoring solution for web-delivered market data and information service resources.

Leigh Walters, chief revenue officer at TRG, says: “This enables our 300 global clients in the financial services, legal, and professional services industries to gain full transparency of their spend and usage, and allow them to optimise their spend on high-value data services.”

TRG and Vela will work together to develop the strategic direction of DART terminal usage tracking and provide integration with TRG’s enterprise spend management platforms, FITS and INFOmatch. The agreement does not cover the DART Entitlements system that will continue to be developed and supported solely by Vela.
