Knowledge Technology Solutions, a provider of market information services for the finance sector, has launched ‘MarketTerminal Mobile Messenger’, a real-time financial information service accessed from a mobile-connected personal digital assistant.
Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and T-Mobile are partnering with KTS to provide this end-to-end mobile application service aimed at equity market professionals who require live market data, news, analytics and email access on the move.
Subscribers to the service receive a package of KTS ‘MarketTerminal’ delivered on HP’s ‘iPAQ hw6915’ mobile messenger device at a cost of GBP 90 for a 24 month contract. As part of the package, T-Mobile’s web’n’walk data tariff offers subscribers unlimited data access to MarketTerminal, other business applications and email. The service covers 15 exchanges including the London and New York stock exchanges, Nasdaq, Euronext, and Deutsche Boerse.
Dr Marc Pinter-Krainer, chief executive of KTS, said, ‘increasingly, City professionals want to access key financial information and email when away from the office. Therefore, PDA access to equity news and data is increasingly essential for traders or advisers who must keep fully up-to-date with live markets.
Neil Dagger, handheld and wireless device business manager, HP UK and Ireland, added, our new iPAQ hw6915 is the perfect device for getting KTS’s MarketTerminal application to busy City professionals with the added benefit of instant email access, camera, WiFi, built in GPS Sat Nav, and pocket internet explorer via Wifi or GPRS. We are delighted to be a part of this solution.
