CMS signs up first Australasian client

Infodirect takes CMS WebView’s TDI Feed

CMS WebView plc (CMS), an international systems and software provider, announces a new client for its TDIâ„¢ Feed of real-time futures and options and foreign exchange data. CMS will provide Infodirect, a New Zealand-based provider of financial information services via the Internet, mobile phones and pagers, with elements of its wholesale data feed for an undisclosed sum.

Infodirect is the latest global client to take CMS’s TDI™ Feed, adding to the Company’s existing loyal customer base of quote vendor and other organisations. In taking the TDI™ Feed, customers receive a high-speed wholesale supply of real-time data from a range of the world's leading futures exchanges, together with access to foreign exchange rates. The Feed is offered in various formats including Financial Information eXchange (FIX) and the default protocol from individual exchanges.

A benefit of the TDIâ„¢ Feed is that customers can choose the frequency of data delivery, with options such as real-time, delayed, snapshot or end-of-day, on an exchange-by-exchange basis.

Last year, CMS replaced its own ‘ticker plant’ software, (i.e. the system that generates the wholesale data feed) with the Company’s own TDI™ software product. As a result, customers such as Infodirect are able to benefit from an improved and enhanced TDI™ Feed, with increased functionality.

Bob Antell, Chief Executive of CMS, commented:

"We’re very pleased to announce that Infodirect has chosen our TDI™ Feed. Not only is this our first Australasian client, but it also reflects a recent increase in interest in our wholesale data feed. Last year we replaced the system that generates the feed with our TDI™ software, which enables us to offer an improved and enhanced product. We’re delighted to be seeing the benefits of this, as we receive a growing number of enquiries and our global customer base continues to expand."
