G.X. Clarke & Co. Updates Internet Trading
Portal With Lightstreamer for Real-Time Pricing and
Lightstreamer, the high-performance AJAX-Comet engine,
has been deployed by G.X. Clarke & Co.
Milan, January 31st, 2007 -- Lightstreamer announced today that G.X. Clarke & Co., a
New Jersey-based Institutional Dealer in U.S. Government,
Federal Agency and Mortgage-Backed Securities, has
implemented web based real-time streaming prices with
Lightstreamer. This Streaming-Ajax (or "Comet") solution
from Lightstreamer allows G.X. Clarke & Co.’s customers
to access continuous, live pricing and to execute trades
over the Internet with just a simple browser, thus
avoiding complications which result when downloads or
plug-ins are required.
Bernard Spanger, partner at G.X. Clarke & Co.,
comments: "We wanted to reduce our support load,
constrain costs and improve our site by updating it with
the latest AJAX push technology, avoiding complications
for our institutional clients with older browsers and
improving overall performance. Lightstreamer has
provided a cost-effective solution, and the few custom
features that they implemented for us resulted in a
clean integration in a short timeframe."
Lightstreamer is a push engine conceived for live
data distribution to any kind of client application (thin,
thick, mobile, etc.) In the case of thin clients, it
relies on the AJAX-Comet paradigm to stream real-time
data to any HTML browser without the need to download or
install anything on the client.
"We are pleased to see that Lightstreamer has again
been recognised as the leading commercial Streaming-Ajax
solution and has been selected by G.X. Clarke & Co.,"
said Simon Walmsley, Vice President Sales of
Lightstreamer is a high-performance push/streaming
engine based on the AJAX-Comet paradigm that delivers
real-time textual data to Web browsers and to thick
applications. When using browsers as a client, nothing
is installed or downloaded (no applets or ActiveX, but
developed by the Financial Systems Integration activity
of privately held Par-Tec SpA group (founded in 1998).
In 2004 a separate company was formed within the group
as an ‘ISV’ to provide Lightstreamer 'Push' middleware
solutions for streaming real-time Market Data, or any
live information, to web browsers and custom application
clients. Lightstreamer is compatible with many browsers
on the market, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox,
Opera, Safari, etc.
